The driver's door window on my Subaru Legacy apparently jumped it's track... it's all the way up, and even extends over the door frame about 1.5 inches. How tricky is it for me to get it back on its track? I have the Chilton book which is worthless to me because it has much terminology I don't understand, and it doesn't even note which pictures go with which instruction. If I take off the door panel, will I be able to see how to reseat the window?

If this is a power window, you would have to disconnect the motor to be able to move the window glass. If you have disconnected the motor and the window glass will not move, look for something stuck in the regulator or the tracks.
Remove the inner door panel and disengage the window track from the motor gear, you may have to at least partially remove the window motor, push the window into place and put everything back to hold it there.
I have a 92 that did the same. After checking fuses and the relay(located under drivers seat) I discovered that the power windows control module on drivers door was bad. Went to a salvage and bought a used for $40, pulled the door panel, unscrewed and unplugged the old one, put in the used one and everything worked fine. About a week later, the passenger side motor went out and replaced that with a used power window motor. All windows now work fine.
pull the rear interior cover from the door and check to see if the latch rod clips are broken or misadjusted. the moisture could be a result of a failed heater core, poor defroster operation (A/C not working, vent door, or blower motor), or the window seal could be defective.
Last night I checked the battery and it was still good. I disconnected and then reconn ected both terminals and that brought the power back. When I turned the key the power went out again. I repeated the procedure but did not turn the key. Instead, I took off the knee bolster and tried to wiggle the wires under the dash to see if I could find the source since it seems to be related to the ignition. Nothing cut the power so I started it up and it worked fine except for the check engine light which was flashing that says I have a misfire condition. I drove the car 25 miles to work this morning and will be taking it to the dealer for a better inspection.
