Question about Subaru Forester

Subaru Forester 2004 XT the drivers window going very slow verging on stopping. after a quick check with servicing they tell me need a new motor and regulator, which is very expensive plus the price they charge for labour. Do you have any prices or other options?

Depending on where you are in the world... a used window regulator with the motor will be like $100.
If you'd care to share a zip code or country code I would gladly locate one for you and get a solid quote on the part for you at least.

    Sorry , my search engine does not cover Australia Catherine.
    Telephone your local salage yard and ask them to find you a used drivers side window regulator...
    Best wishes !

Left passenger window down in rain and now it wont go up. 2004 Subaru Forester

Same thing happened to 2002 Suburban and it turned out to be the cables which are connected the window regulator (motor), assuming you have power windows. You will need to remove the panel on the passenger side door to determine the cause. It could be one of three things, the cables, the regulator, or a broken fuse or wire stopping the electrical current...this is pretty rare especially if this is the only window which is not operating.

Hello experts, I have 2004 Subaru Forester XT with 130K. I did a transmission flush at about 90K. The transmission shifts hard form 1st to 2nd at low speed, and there is slight jolt on faster...

No, and add some Trans X slip stop and leak stop, sold by K and W. about 16 ounces, this really helped my Forester, as a lot of them have this issue with the clutch pack in the tranny. sold at most auto parts stores and Wal Mart. take care.

I have a 2004 Subaru Forester and the vents just quit blowing, nothing from from the heater, defrost, or a/c. It didn't 'slowly' go out, it just stopped blowing. I called Subaru and the said it was...

Yes it most likely is the blower motor, and it can be expensive to change.
I don't know your level of automotive work, but its not an easy or quick job...that job calls for 1.3hrs labor ask the shop how much labor they are charging if they say more than 1.5 hrs they are going to charge go somewhere else
