    Howdy Gang, So I am about to take possession of a '19 OB w/130k miles but I know the owner and it has been all freeway. Vehicle is well taken care of, but only oil changes, tires, rear brakes and spark plugs (@110k) have been performed. No services to the CVT nor diffs at this time. I am...

    I heard humming noise from front side of my 2014 outback. A mechanic suspects that it is from differential. Anyone had experienced the same problem? What is the cost to replace front differential?

    I have a trans pan that I have to replace the seal on but I'm trying to figure out if it's the trans pan leak spread to the diff area or if the diff is leaking too. If so what is that? A gasket, seal or just a bolt tighten?

    My 09's front dif is "seeping" (Not completely leaking but fluid is still escaping.) Does anyone have any experience with that and have anyway to resolve it? From what I've been told it is very hard to fix and would be better to just replace it. Its only got 127,000 miles so I'm not sure if its...

    I’m looking all over the place for info about rehearing the diffs in my ob (2015 2.5i.) Essentially I want to regear to 4.44 from the standard 4.11. I want to put taller tires on and be able to crawl (at least a bit better.) It seems that people are only doing this to old legacy models and wrx...

    Hiya all! Is the front differential on my outback the same as my rear diff, the R160? They are both stock open diffs. I will be installing a one of these at some point in the future in my rear diff, and am wondering if I can do the same to the front. Cheers.

    GM all. Need some help figuring out what is the problem I did the service for differential about a month ago so not sure if that is related but just saw the leak from the diff.

    Hallo all! I've a US 2009 Outback SE with the 4EAT. Was just wondering if anyone could help me figure out what type of transfer case (or whatever you'd wanna call the "center diff") I have in the vehicle.

    I posted a thread about this not to long ago and got an answer pointing to the front end suspension. This could still be the case but after a quick inspection of all the bushings and looking for play, I couldn't find any issues. Below I'll link a video with me driving and demonstrating the...
  17. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    A few weeks ago I started hearing this whistling noise coming from the front end, potentially the front passenger side wheel area. I checked transmission fluid which was fine, just had the oil changed as well. Here's a short clip of the sound:

    This is another shot with the pieces put together to illustrate the parts I need.
  20. Differential top view

    This is to show where these 'cup washers' go inside the differential
