    Thanks for this. I’ll be replacing my window motor/regulator on my ’06 WRX soon. Jameel, I was stuck in the same position as you. From what I’ve read and successfully done is to lightly bang on the motor (from the inside) with a mallet (not too hard) and try putting a little downwards pressure on the window while hitting the down button on the switch. You’ll have to plug the switch back in to do this. It went a little slow, but the motor had just enough to roll it all the way down little by little. Now the bolts are where I need them to be (through the holes). Be cautious when removing the window and/or when putting everything together.

    Hey guys the glass will still not drop, it’s frozen in place, is there a better way to drop the glass than just hitting it
