Question about Subaru Cars & Trucks

Open Question

Hi, So I get in my 2005 Subaru Outback Sedan this morning & go to work. Get to work & my door doesn’t open, from the inside or outside. It seems like it’s not unlocking all the way. With no success I tried taking the panel off. Can you help?

SOURCE: 2005 Toyota Sienna Sliding Door Won't Open

Have 2005 Sienna and its Driver side door was not openning. Cheap dealer fixed it himself in front of me. After opening the doors plastic assembly while sitting inside with a screw driver. Then he bent the clip towards left where the metal wire is connected. If you guys want to see what he did i would record a video and upload for you guys. Let me know at [email protected]

SOURCE: Subaru Outback 2005 - Driver side door/window

The switches in Subarus are made by Nissan believe it or not. They are not interchangeable. Anyway, I suspect you have a bad window switch. You can pickup the whole bank of swiches or replace just the one. Do a search on ebay for your part.
Has this car had body damage on the driver's door? You could have a cut wire inside the door.
