  3. Engine & Drivetrain
    I'm getting grinding noise from rear drivetrain whenever I take my foot off the accelerator pedal (coasting). As long as I apply even the lightest pressure to the pedal, the drivetrain is smooth and silent. When I am driving under approximately 35 MPH there is no noise. The noise sounds as if...

    Hi all. I live in a very rainy and humid area and I hate that my '08 Outback does not have heated mirrors. In those bad foggy days, it's actually a safety concern. I removed the door panel the other day and took these pictures of the wires. Is anybody here able to tell whether I've got the...

    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...

    Hey guys. I’m not so new to Subaru but new to the forum. I’m at the point of my journey where I have realized how much of a lego box subarus are (Maybe why we like them so much, eh? 🤔😂) To reiterate from my introductory post; I’m getting ready to swap my xt with a 6mt/R180 3.9FD from a JDM MY07...
