Introduction: Replace a Window Controller in a Subaru Outback
My drivers side window would not go up, thats no good. So I had to replace the window controller.
Step 1: Parts
So you'll need a PP-TD20 window controller unit.
Phillips head screw driver
Step 2: Remove Screws
There are only two screws in the door panels.
They are both below little plastic covers. One on the door release , and one below the handle.
Step 3: Satellite
Remove the tweeter covers, they just pop off.
Step 4: Pry Off the Door Panels.
Pop the panel pry tool in the door and pop the panel off. You can use a screw driver, but then you might break the little tabs off.
Step 5: Try Out the Switch
So my window would not go up... but it woul go down. So There is a green plug on the door, open it up and test out the behaviour. Since I got 0 volts with the meter when I pushed the switch up, but -12 when I pushed it down I figured it was the relay in the switch. Of course I had to order the prart, but in the mean time I used some alligator clips to reverse the switch and make the window go back up.
Step 6: Unplug
Unplug the switches.
Step 7: Remove He Plastic Cover
remove the plasic face plate covering the switch.
Step 8: Remove the Switch.
unscrew the switch.
Step 9: Test It
plug in your switch, make sure it works. if it does reverse the steps you are done.
