Default 08 'Beca Driver's window switch repair

I have been having problems with my driver's window switch for some time. Must have had some soda or something drop in there...The switch was not full activating the window motor often leaving the window down, or when it made contact it would very jerky move back up. Sucked for drive in's.
After numerous attempts to get it fixed at the stealership, they wanted $300 bucks to replace the whole console piece, I said screw it - fix it myself...
So I bought some contact cleaner...and here's the sequence to fix it yourself.

Remove this screw

Pull out the switch assembly
Remove the 3 screws

Push the tab in the center of the power plug and remove

Remove the white case containing the circuit board - the 6 buttons on the other side are snapped in. So you open the casing by spreading the outer black box and slide the white one out. It will pop out as each button is connected to a slider beneath.
I sprayed electronics cleaner over the board.

Reassemble circuit box to the push button case, plug in the wire connector, turn on your accessories ignition to test it all works as it's supposed to, reassemble... done.

Subaru is stupid - their factory trained mechanics only replace parts -there's not service techs. This was an easy fix that cost me $4.99 for the product.

REALLY Subaru - $300?? get real.
