I'm not familiar with the regulator yet. I did a motor replacement on my 03 forester a few months ago though. There are some youtube videos (at least for the forester) and it may be similar in nature. Check here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OyhalKsKBP4 and read the comments.. you may find something that I won't have for you. Keep us posted with questions, updates, resolutions, etc.

And I wonder.. (again, not familiar) but is it easier to install the regulator, make sure it works with the motor, etc. Run it to the top (closed position) and then install your glass? I know with the forester, you have to mess with the window holds with vice grips.. or at least some people have to. One thing that I tried to do with my motor job was to loosen most of the bolts to allow wiggle room but not get anything out of alignment. You can also add a photo if there is a specific area you are having trouble with.
