Window motor compatability

Post by goatiemon » Fri Feb 01, 2019 12:24 pm

good day all

I'm in rainy northern California
and the driver side window is stuck down :(

I've done a little electrical trouble shooting
and it appears to be the motor which has failed

the fsm says to take the glass out to get the motor out
so l haven't tried yet....

before l head to the wreckers
wondering what other subies of the era had the same window motor?
any one know?

it's a 06 Baja

thanks

Any other Baja model regardless of year or any 00-04 Legacy or Outback window motor will work since it's the exact same door parts.

Yeah, general rule of thumb on the Baja with regards to replacement parts-
  • Everything from the rear axle forward is 00-04 Legacy/Outback with the exception of...
    • the plastic lower body panels, front grille, and suspension parts... but they can be swapped
    • the factory roof crossbars, bed trim/liner, and rear window are also Baja-exclusive
    • the Turbo Baja drive train is that of the 04-07 Forester XT, not Legacy
  • Everything behind the rear axle is proprietary to the Baja and cannot be swapped between other models without modification
