  1. Gen 3: 2005-2009
    Hello all, I am working with a 2007 Subaru Outback, 2.5i Basic, 5 Speed. 218,000 Miles I've had it since 2018, and have had some major repairs made, some by myself, and others through trusted mechanics while it's been in my possession. Recently I took the Outback on a roadtrip, about 500 miles...

    Hey all. This is my first post so I'm not sure if anyone will even see this. Anyway. I have swapped a manual transmission into my outback. Everything mechanically is in the car and in good condition. Can anyone tell me what to do with the wiring so I can start to drive my car again? Thank you.
  3. Engine & Drivetrain
    Been a while since I last posted but, I have a new question in regards to my transmission. I had purchased the car mid October in ‘21 w/147k miles on the meter. After getting the hang of driving a manual, I’ve noticed the car would “bounce” or jerk whilst in low gears during stop and go...
  4. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    So I managed to pick up a bone stock XT with a manual a few months ago and I've been working on replacing the old parts. One issue that I've run into is that the transmission makes a grinding noise when I am in gear but not touching the gas. If the trans is out of gear, it does not make a...
  5. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hey guys, I have a 2005 outback sport, 5 speed manual with the 2.5 in it. The other day I was driving home from work, got to an intersection, came to a full stop and when I tried to take off, realized the car was off (like it had stalled). Try to turn the car back over and nothing. Pushed it...
  6. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    This started yesterday. I have a 60 mile commute and on my way back I was in cruise control and it went off. I look and notice I lost my gear display which probably accounts for losing cruise. I fiddle with it, it won't come back on (e.g. clutch position, gear position.) A few minutes later it...

    Current photo: After several months of searching, I found my low mileage manual unicorn over 1,000 miles and two states away in August 2020, and it happened to be a rare turbo. I finally took possession of my wagon with only 76k miles and bone stock in September (a long crazy story, will share...

    I've swapped my USDM 2008 Outback 3.0R LL Bean from a 5EAT to a 6 speed manual. I think I'm the first one fully working with US emissions and cruise control? Why? Because I want to. How? Swap in the drivetrain (Trans, rear diff, etc) from a 2007 JDM Legacy 3.0R Spec B. Remove the TCM and...

    I have an elderly friend that wants to buy an original owners manual for her 2017 Legacy. She doesn’t want to use a computer or phone to view pdf version. Anyone know where she could find one?
  10. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hey guys. Got a bit of a strange one. Recently bought my 2.0D 2010 Subaru Outback Manual, and after I've been driving the car for a while (about 2 or so hours) across the day, the car violently judders when I move off the line in first gear. Has anyone else had this problem? Eg. About 3...

    Hello! Installed Cobb shorthrow shifter on ‘09 XT and after a day easy driving the shifter felt like it popped out of its socket.. it did. The plastic bushing that retains the C-ring and rests in the seat broke off causing, as one could imagine, a problem. With my limited knowledge, yet...
  13. Gen 2: 2000-2004
    The driveshaft in my 2001 2.5L legacy outback disconnected and then destroyed my transmission. I’m having trouble finding a cheep replacement. Does anyone know the best place to find an affordable replacement transmission, or what other cars use the same transmission? So far the cheapest thing I...
