It is not easy as the control has to be removed from the dash.

Ahh, nothing worthwhile is ever easy, no? Having said that, my light is still out, and I have a few basic tools. And some free time. And not much money.

Can you offer any specifics? Does the whole dash need to come out, or can this be accessed from underneath? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Replacing a power window switch?

Take the door panel off. The old switch or switch cluster should pop out of the panel when you release it from the tabs. The new switch which you ordered will plug into the window switch wiring harness. This will only plug one way; therefore, you can't go wrong. Pop the switch or switch cluster back into the door panel; attach the door panel back to the door frame.

The automatic seat belts will not work on your Subaru?

I hope someone responds soon. Mine are often intermittent and can find no info. elsewhere. What year and model is your Subie? I have a 1991 Legacy and I pulled the automatic system out and replaced it with the standard seatbelts from a 1995-1999 Legacy. You could try replacing the seatbelt control unit which on the Legacy sedan, lives behind the carpet panel in the trunk near the left side of the trunk hinge and in the wagon its the same general area in the cargo compartment. I have the passenger side auto seatbelt parts for the Legacy if you're in need.

Why won't driver's side door lock work with switch or keyless entry Will work only manually What could be the problem?

Most likely the switch on your driver door panel needs replacing(ebay!). Or if you or someone you trust has a multimeter(electricians tool) you can check the existing switch. You must first remove the switch from your panel. Hope this helps and I hope your switches are'nt clustered(all together).
