CVT Transmission Replacement

Hey All,

I have a 2011 2.5 Outback 167 horse power. My tranny failed...now I am looking for alternatives on what should I do.

The model of the transmission is TF690... I swear there is NOTHING on this online.
All I can see is TR580 and TR690, but they don't seem to be the same.

Does anyone know if TF690 is the same as TR580...saw some information on parts being compatible...but than again who knows.

If I can't find a second hand TF690 tranny, does anyone know if I take a different model CVT model, what will have to be done to make it work?

Thanks a million guys!

What market are you in? Several things you said don't make sense for the USA cars. And where did you see TF690?


2002 OBW base model with automatic. Added: CD player, Security System, tweeters & subwoofer, trailer hitch, lighting mods, cabin filters, hood deflector, drivers lumbar mods, winter tires.
2014 OBW Premium, CVT & Moonroof. Added: trailer hitch, lighting mods, upgraded horn, winter tire/wheel/TPMS package.

I actually live in Europe. The car was bought in Italy.
The number is on the actual box to my understanding...was given by the repair shop.

I guess you're convinced the trans is bad?

Yes, unfortunately. The chain which is on the pulley kit with guides, has stretched and slipped BIG time.

Is it possible that at quick glance an R became an F? I've posted tech information on these transmissions and the various torque converters used over the years and I've never heard of a TF box. I highly suspect that your mechanic got it wrong.

Thank you!

I swear I asked him like a million times about it.... If it is an R in actuality, I have spend numerous hours of looking online... I guess I need to get my A** over to the repair shop pronto.

Anyhow, if anyone else has come across my problem , any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
