  1. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hi there, My 2010 Outback has recently developed a loud/fast ticking noise coming from the passenger side dash. I have established that it is related to the HVAC system, as I can stop the noise by turning on the demisters/defrosters. I've read plenty of posts about similar problems, but the...
  2. Gen 3: 2005-2009
    Fixed view comments reference here is videos I took of the cause of no heat; this is how it should look see here and this is how it was when not working see here . I will try to keep this straight forward while still giving proper factors that are happening; So I have a 2006 2.5i base model I...
  3. Gen 6: 2020-Future
    My car is only two months old. When I change the temperature setting (on heat) the temperature of the air coming out of the vents does not change. For instance, once the engine is heated up and hot air comes out of the vents, I have to decrease the temperature to 62 in order for it to not...
  4. Lighting, Electrical & Electronics
    The vent mode actuator on my 2008 outback L.L. Bean, 2.5 SOHC, has stopped working. I have removed the original part and cleaned it. I plugged it back into the car and it rotates about halfway and then stops. It doesn’t respond to any HVAC inputs. I plugged it in without mounting it first. Do we...

    For the last couple days I've noticed that the airflow fluctuates in intensity by itself without changing settings. For example, I was idling in the drive-thru on my lunch and had the heater set to 77°F and vent/floor. It was as if the car was "running out of breath" for lack of a better...
  6. Gen 3: 2005-2009
    I've got a 2005 Outback that we've owned for about eight years now. It had 80k on it when we bought it and it's pushing 200k now and while mechanically it's in great shape, it's recently developed a slightly annoying problem. Only on the driver's side, the vents either blow Very Hot or Very...
  7. Gen 4: 2010-2014
    Apologies if this has already been asked and answered, I did a cursory search but didn't find anything. When I select the floor vents, instead of holding on the floor vent setting, the HVAC will cycle randomly between the floor vent mode, and floor/dash mode, as if it's "struggling" to hold it...
