Not overly familiar with Subarus, but they're all just nuts and bolts lol.
Pretty much all outside handles must be removed from the inside. Start by pulling the inside door panel off by finding and removing the securing screws and then lifting it in an up and out fashion. The panel is usually held in place by plastic grommits and a few usually will break in this process (it's just how it is) but it's not critical.

Now that you have access you'll most likely have to remove/disconnect the door latch rod and possibly the locking mechanism to reach the outside 'skin' of the door and access to the inside of the handle.

From there it should be pretty straight forward to remove and replace it with a new one. Good luck!

IF you go to a major autoparts store they have a testing unit and can tell you if it is the FOB.

use it to repair my car and it's totally perfectly fine now. Here's the website he bought it from.

SUBARU Automatic Transmission Solenoid A Dropping Resistor July 2, 2011. Author: Lewis Werner The SUBARU automatic transmission dropping resistor is connected in parallel with duty solenoid A. Duty solenoid A regulates the Subaru automatic transmission fluid line pressure. Like most of the transmission solenoids, duty solenoid A's duty cycle is varied by the transmission control unit (TCU) to control the line pressure.
The dropping resistor works with duty solenoid A in regulating the automatic transmission fluid line pressure. This resistor keeps a certain amount of current flow through duty solenoid A during the 'OFF' portion of its duty cycle. So in other words, duty solenoid A is never fully 'OFF'.
The dropping resistor is located on the right front shock tower, near the MPI (multi-port injection) fuel system dropping resistor. The photos at the right depict the Subaru automatic transmission dropping resistor.
If this resistor fails open, becomes disconnected, or has its wiring severed, one result might be increased shift shock. The reasoning behind this is that without the resistor in the circuit, the line pressure may be higher, since without the current passing through solenoid A during the 'OFF' portion of its duty cycle, it will tend to close further, and thus not bleed off as much pressure from the automatic transmission fluid pump.
If the resistor fails open or is disconnected, it should cause the ATF temperature lamp to flash 16 times on the next startup, since the TCU would be able to see electrically that the resistor is open.
This resistor was used on the SUBARU 4EAT phase I and 4EAT phase II automatic transmissions. It may also be used on the 5EAT though I have not confirmed it.

The heater core is probably clogged, or the valve that lets radiator fluid flow through the core is not working.

Are you absolutely positive you are installing the correct amp fuse ?
I think headlights on Subaru's run thru a relay, which could be bad.
Here's a how-to that may help.

If it's quiet enough, turn the key to the "on" position without cranking it, then stop and listen for a humming or buzzing sound. If you don't hear it, your fuel pump may be having issues.

I would assume they got blocked and have rotted, thus allowing water into foot wells

You say you changed your spark plugs. Is it possible you crossed your wires. Check and see. Good Luck Friend.

I suggest you try one of those instant download manuals. My nephew bought one for me when my car broke and we could fix it all by ourselves with the manual costing $10. Try it.

I it's possible that you have a intake or head gasket leak that's going into your engine block signs to check for if your car seems to be missing just a little bit one of your cylinders could tell you the area that the head gasket may be leaking or the intake gasket need to check your coolant level every now and then to see if you are losing any coolant out of your Reservoir or your radiator

"...headlights are hooked directly to the battery" suggests that a previous owner had issues and wired it that way.
The solution is put the circuit (not necessarily the original wiring) back to the factory state.

What's probably happened is a bad ground for the headlight assemblies somewhere. It may also be that a short developed in the wiring harness, a not uncommon problem with many makes.

What you (or your mechanic) need is the schematic to
a) disconnect the previous owner's work; then
b) trace the headlight/signal control circuits though the relays to the headlights and signals; then
c) rebuild / repair as needed.

This can be a lengthy process, be prepared to pay forthe work.
