On a Manual you can't because everything is mechanical and not electrical like the AWD


Cheers,

Sorry, I meant manual as in owners manual not standard transmission.

It says when running on a spare to disable AWD if you own an AT that is not a turbo or 6cyl.

I get it now

Thanks for the info. guys. I just wanted to be aware of it cause I already have a nail on my side thread of my rear tire. I am currently researching tire options (waiting for people to answer my post on OB 2.5i in the Tire section). But if something were to happen I know I would be prepared.

Currently debating between Kumho Solus KS-16 vs Falken ZE-512.

They might have a full sized spare but the tire brand may be different thereby making the size different than the ones on the wheels (if the spare is outside the permissible level, FWD might have to be engaged).

Not sure on the H6 and turbo's to be honest.

on my 05xt (turbo) the spare is a different tire/wheel size.
I have no idea how they compensate for it, but there must be something....

I think this is a job for Peaty (Lord o Scooby mods) to investigate!

Edit: From the manual

Apparently I need to take another look at my owners manual. I've never had a flat in my slushbox 2000 Outback, nor had I given this topic any thought.

I have an 01 OBW manual trans and I've got the fuse in the fuse block under the hood, it's seperated from the rest and looks slightly different. IIRC it says AWD and VDC. Not sure if the manual mentions manuals not needed the fuse but I think I'd throw it in there anyway if I got a flat.
