  1. 08 Outback horn stuck on

    Gen 3: 2005-2009
    A friend of mine just bought a base model 08 Outback. Horn didn't work so he checked the fuse block, found the fuse for the horn was missing, and when he put a fuse in his horn blows nonstop. Haven't had a chance to look at any wiring diagrams yet but I'm curious if anyone has seen this issue...

    Don't even bother, this guy clearly knows more than we do.
  3. Heat Shield Question

    Gen 3: 2005-2009
    I think we're all talking about different heat shields. OP -- you're referring to the large shield that goes between the exhaust and the main driveshaft, around 18" wide and 32" long?

  5. Heat Shield Question

    Gen 3: 2005-2009
    I pulled mine when changing the driveshaft in my 03 5spd... sheesh, nine years ago? Anyways... I put another 150,000 miles on it and never had any issues. Honestly, if it's already messed up it's just going to rattle and annoy you. I'd leave it off.
  6. 05 Outback dies at idle

    Gen 3: 2005-2009
    Almost sounds like it hasn't relearned how to idle. Try this -- start your car, put it in drive, and just let it sit for five minutes with your foot on the brake (or pull the ebrake). Take it for a drive after a few minutes, and see if it idles better.
  7. Creak behind the dash

    Gen 3: 2005-2009
    Does the creak always occur when the steering wheel is in the same spot (i.e. always at 3 o'clock regardless of turning it all the way to the left and then back to the right)? Maybe the steering column u-joint is failing?
  8. Front end banging when rolling....

    Gen 3: 2005-2009
    Both front axles are the same, if you swap axles side to side what happens?
  9. Gap between rear window and boot panel

    Gen 3: 2005-2009
    Welcome to the family, and the site :) Looks like the weatherstripping has shrunk a bit there. Not sure if it's a user-replaceable part though; might have to pop the window to replace it. One of the more knowledgeable will probably chime in shortly.
  10. transmission interchange 2005 -2006

    Gen 3: 2005-2009
    I don't remember exactly, I think it's the internal wiring but don't quote me. @cardoc or @plain OM might know?
  11. transmission interchange 2005 -2006

    Gen 3: 2005-2009
    Nope, 2005 transmission is specific to 2005.
