You could also check the ground and the wires on the motor to make sure that your connections are good and solid and you don't have a loose connection. You could also try connecting the window motor directly to the battery and see if it's any better. That way you rule out the connection/wires in the car as the culprit. That's about all I got.

i have a JY 3 minutes away with tons of subarus, so if its the motor, i will go snag some from there. I havent taken apart the door panneling for fear of ruining wiring to the switches, is there enough wire length and a disconnect so i could completely remove the pannel? How hard is a motor swap? Thanks
I have only taken apart the driver and passenger doors, but there is just a connector for the wiring on the panel, so undo the connector and the panel is free from the door, super easy. This was on the front, but I don't see the back being any different from the passenger door... I have not done a motor swap though so I don't know on that one.
I just wanted a couple of backups from a car that hasn't sat outside for who knows how long and been torn into by who knows who, that's why I got the motors from the dude on here. At least my chances of getting a good motor are better that way

"What junkyard is 3 miles away from you? I also have a window motor in my shed that I would give away."
-its state street auto something like that. Its in south provo possibly springville. They have a couple GL-10's with disc brake set up you could snag. I just dont have the need to do the swap. And a nice older turbo coupe with the checkerboard seats. But the driver seat is torn in the usual places but look like decent seats otherwise. I just dont have money right now to run away with my project and buy parts otherwise i would so some swapping. Oh the rotors are all rusted out though on the rear disc systems.
