  1. Gen 3: 2005-2009
    Heyo, trying to figure out what's caused these marks on my 2006 H6 and the best way to repair them. Talked to someone at autozone and they think its mold or rust on the metal underneath the rubberized coating. I looked all throughout the Haynes user manual and couldn't find what this piece is...

    Hi everyone, I just replaced both my rear wheel bearings with NTN bearings. I was tightening my axle nut and realized that it was not tightening as far back as it should with the CV joint. As you can see in the photos, the axle joint is not sitting flush with the outer bearing seal. I didn't do...
  4. Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Hello everyone, I am in the middle of replacing my wheel bearing on my 06 Impreza and I have run into a problem removing the bearing from the rear driver side. I rented the Oriley's master hub remover to do the job. I already finished the rear right side, but when I pushed out the bearing, the...

    I’ve got a 2006 outback and the stock engine is on its last legs. I figured this was the perfect opportunity to do an engine and manual trans swap. I want to have some sideways fun on the dirt roads without it being completely un-drivable in normal circumstances. Engine/transmission recommendations?
  6. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hi all, Recently I have noticed an issue as follows: 1. Intermittently if I take my foot off the gas revs drop to a higher level than normal (2k rather than 1k) and I feel resistance. This vehicle then does what feels like a smooth downshift but the car is still in 5th. This "downshift" then...

  9. Gen 3: 2005-2009
    Any help here would be greatly appreciated. 2 years ago I got a 2006 Subaru Outback 2.5i. It's the wagon, and I love the car. However, recently, the car overheated and had to be flat-bed towed to my local mechanic. As so prevalent with this model year of car, the head gaskets were shot and...
