How to replace subaru quarter glass
Hi Mom, I'm wondering how your spinach pie tastes? Replacing the quarter light is not an easy job, but if you're handy with wrenches and screw drivers here goes. Open the offending door and remove the power window switch by gently lifting it with a thin flat screw driver. Disconnect the cables by releasing the locking tap on the underside of the unit. Remove the back cover of the door release handle by either removing the single screw or un clipping it, Using a Philips screw driver, remove the two deep screws under the arm rest. Borrow the pastry knife from your kitchen and at the lowest part of the door insert it between the panel and the door frame, and then gently pry it towards yourself until you hear the press studs pop open. Repeat the same action all the way around the bottom and up the two side of the door and when loose, lift off the panel and place it out of the way of the kids. Re attach the switch controlling the window and lower the window to where you can reach the bolts (10mm) with a socket wrench. The bolts hold the regulator to the window. Loosen them and remove and lower the regulator all the way down, until you can pull the window up at an angle allowing you to remove it from the door. carefully lift and remove it and put it somewhere safe. remove the rubber weather strips and from the top of the door frame together with the strips inside the rail the window moves on. If you follow the rail of the window to where it is fitted to the door frame you will see another 10mm bolt at the bottom. Before removing that one mark the position as exactly as possible. (The position is critical for smooth operation of the window). Remove the weather strip around the outside of the frame of the door and on top you will see the upper bolt holding the rail (which should also be marked) Remove that and then the rail. The quarter light is held into position by a rubber which surrounds it.Being very careful of any glass which may have remained in the rubber gently remove it and after cleaning it, fit the replacement into the rubber. With the glass in place fitting it into the correct position is not going to be easy. A good idea is to smear a light coating of white petroleum gel onto the parts of the rubber which fit into the door frame before fitting it. When the quarter lite has been fitted and the rail placed in position reassembly is opposite to disassembly. Keep in mind that when fitting back the window it must be aligned with the rails which should be finally tightened after the window is fitted. Now tell me, while you're busy doing that, who's gonna bake the spinach pie? Best regards John

2002 forester CEL on (EVAP Leak) and stalling at start?
If it were a large leak, the vehicle would idle fast, then the iac would reduce to stabilize the issue. We have had a few units needing the tank system smoked. Was this a part of the smoke job you received?? There is a bleed or purge valve in the rear which is hard to smoke and tell if it is defective. With out the entire values, it would be very difficult to diagnose over the net.

Check code engine light
The code should read a letter and 4 numbers after it. Try the codes again and see if you don't come up with a code like P0600. Right back and let us know. Thanks.
