  1. Gen 3: 2005-2009
    I've got a 2005 Subaru outback sedan. I love the vehicle but I've got an issue I need to tackle. My driver side heat is stuck on. Even when I turn the AC fully off it blows hot air. Just to clarify I can turn the fan speed down but a little hot air always blows out of the driver side. The...

    My AC isn't very cool, at all, even on the lowest setting. Any tips to help that? Possibly low on freon?

    Hey everyone, I'm having an issue with my ac compressor clutch hub assembly. It literally has sheared itself off. The magnet will pull the clutch in but it won't engage since it is disconnected at the face. A few months ago there was a squeak from the pully when it engaged and compressor would...

    Hey everyone, as the weather is getting warmer I’ve started to turn the AC on but have noticed that even after 20-30 mins of driving it doesn’t blow very cold. A few notes; this is my first warm season with the Outback, outside temp is roughly 20 degrees C (68 F), have it turned to the lowest...

    Okay, I know there is a simple fix to this, but when I turn my A/C off and the fan is off, I still have cold air blowing through the vents. I know I can close down the side vents, but I should be able to stop all air from blowing through the vent, right? Thanks!

    Hello all, My 2014 OB is having AC draining issues. When I’m driving on the highway the fan starts to stutter and then it pours liquid down the firewall on to my passenger side floorboard. It’s almost a solid stream of water that continues for minutes. After it starts up then it drips during...

    2018 Outback Limited 2.5 - 22,000 miles Ok, so over the past couple of weeks I have noticed a slight "rattling" sound in the center/right air vent above the headunit but everything has been working fine. Figured when I took it in for the next oil change, I would get it looked at. Then I started...

    Hi everyone, I need some help diagnosing a problem with the AC on my 2007 Outback 2.5i. The air blows cool (not cold) and then warms up to air temperature after a few minutes. When I first start the AC, the low pressure hose is in the normal range (32ish psi) and the compressor clutch is...

    Two days ago the air-conditioner on my 2011 outback was giving out warm air when I was idling. It blew cold fine when I was moving on the highway I topped off the coolant, checked the Freon which seemed slightly low added some. Today warm/hot air only at idle and even when I am moving it’s 85°...

    Please ignore the other thread on this - it got cut off and I don't know how to delete it. Hi, I own a 2012 Subaru outback. It's been through a lot over the years... Anyway, a month ago or so it started making a clicking noise when flooring it, and when engine was under load it made a very...
