  1. 2003 Legacy L SE 5MT

    2003 Legacy L SE 5MT

    Rust free California car, have basically full service records. Plan to keep this one forever, so it's well taken care of. Installed fresh KYBs, fresh OEM Subaru clutch kit, sealed up the leaks, top fluids, high performance tires, stays off salted roads. Dealer that did the airbag recall said it...
  2. Gen 2: 2000-2004
    I went to replace the back up lamp switch and the neutral safety switch on the side of the transmission and had an issue with each. The back up lamp switch connector doesn’t fit. The tab slot is on the opposite side. It was ordered from Rockauto. Do I need one from the dealership or do I need to...
  3. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    I and my father-in-law have been keeping this thing on its feet for about 5-6 years now. The engine was replaced in 2016ish and had no issues for a long time. However... About a year and a half ago, we noticed that the Outback had issues starting up when it got colder. It would crank over just...

    Has anyone seen, done, or heard of a manual transmission swap into a 2015-2017 outback 3.6r limited? I’ve looked into different swap options like a 2015 wrx or a older 3.6r outback, possibly a legacy. Let me know!

I'm experiencing a serious issue and wanting to get some additional suggestions so this doesn't end up becoming an even more costly situation later on, I've seen a few great threads detailing a similar issue with but the resolution details...
  7. For Sale / For Free
    I am selling my 2012 Suby. Bought it with salvage title back in 2016 with 43k miles, and drove it to 101k. Don't ask me why it was salvaged, as I never was able to figure it out from previous owner. From the looks of it, the rear left quarter may have been replaced as paint does not match...
  8. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Today I was driving and my car got stuck in 4th gear (manual 5 speed 2.5 dohc). I had just recently had this issue and thought I fixed it. I tried pushing it out but it stayed stuck in gear and now has a ridiculous amount of play on the shifter.
  9. Gen 4: 2010-2014
    I picked up this 2.5 OB 6-speed with 112k on it. Soon after doing its 120k service the throwout bearing failed catastrophically with no warning other than a very subtle whirring when the clutch was depressed. Not knowing at the time what had failed I limped it across town to a transmission...

  11. Gen 3: 2005-2009
    I just upgraded to a 07 legacy outback from my first 2nd gen outback. The cvt transmission in it has a issue with the valve to the transfer case, making the front wheels not turn as well. I thought instead of having it torn apart I could maybe just replace it with a manual trans. I am not...
