  3. The above registration plate is for sale. If interested please contact mark.harrison79@btinternet.com
  4. Not sure about the engine layout as not familiar with the XV but given the Subaru diesel plant is not the best I think the idea of a petrol conversion is a good one. Not sure how a turbo failure means crank and bearing wear? I could understand if the blades disintegrated and went through the engine there would be damage though - How bad was the failure? Before you give it to a garage for investigation why not get some of the oil and send it off for analysis - That will then tell you if you have any ring, crank / bearing wear. Its a relatively small cost before a garage starts pulling things apart.
  5. Last week
  6. Check the diameter of the axle stub that goes into the diff
  7. I dont know that - I saw a couple of used ones on ebay but I dont know if that is just running the risk of leaks still???
  8. Thank you ,do you know of any aftermarket ones as I need both sides, thank you for replying ๐Ÿ˜Š
  9. here is a replacement https://www.importcarparts.co.uk/parts-info?id=10622&cat=96&sub=97&sec=142&var=85&dc=0&gen=&searchKey=&searchPart=
  10. Not sure on your model but I saw a fix to a similar problem using rubber tubing that was fed down the inside of the door rubber seal to give it more resistance - can you do that?
  11. Hello, I am new here so look forward to talking to you. I just bought a 2015 Forester. The satnav map is out of date so I went online to the main website and when I tried to add my Vin to the page it says the Vin is not recognised. I then tried to send proof of ownership to overcome this issue but the website will not allow my postcode because it is British and not American or German. Can any of you lovely people help me please? Many thanks in advance.
  12. Rear anti roll bar mounts and drop links plus fuel filler neck and breather pipe
  13. Can anyone tell me if you can stop rear door seals on a classic impreza from leaking ?. Is there any adjustment on the glass runners (so as to increase pressure onto door seals)?. Thanks in advance
  14. Anyone interested in any of these spares before they go to the scrap man, make me an offer. Also listed on E-Bay.
  15. Hi guys, I am looking for the part number for the whole headlamp assembly to install on my 2017 Outback. I bought some from the Subaru UK. via the dealer but they do not fit. Does anyone know the correct part number for the headlamp assembly?
  16. tbh i wouldnt trust a dealer to do anything, even an oil change. experiances i;ve had with them have been pretty bad, to point of having to get work done a second time to put right what they !Removed! up. Bear in mind its only a limited numbers i;ve had dealings with ad some will prob be better than others.
  17. Hi there, My turbo recently gave up and more investigation is required to check the sump for any white metal from the crank shaft and main bearings as a precaution ๐Ÿฅด excuse my lack of knowledge on engines but this is what Iโ€™m told by the Subaru garage. Anyway, I was thinking if it leads to more than just a new turbo required and going to cost a fair bit then it might be a good opportunity/good excuse to swap out the engine ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Its a 2016 XV 2.0 turbo diesel. So, what I was thinking was SORN the car and convert it to petrol (toying with the idea of a rally car). Now I know itโ€™s not just as simple as engine out, new one in, even when itโ€™s same fuel type. My main question is, would a 2015> 2.5L STI engine fit in the 2016 XV engine bay?? Iโ€™m guessing both models have the same chassis and hoping that itโ€™s possible ๐Ÿ˜… Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance! Mark ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Hello, A problem with my Levorg 1.6 GT (50k miles Full Subaru History) has recently developed in the form of the car intermittently emitting smoke from the exhaust after start up. Seems to not happen from fully cold and only intermittently. See screen shot from video file attached. Has anyone experienced anything similar with their Levorg? Any views about the type of smoke / cause gratefully received. Many thanks, Billy
  20. Hi, hope you enjoy the new to you car. looks good. Andy
  21. I don't know what it could be, but I hope somebody can help on here. Also you could posting your query on other general Subaru forums to reach a bigger audience. Good luck Andy
  22. I had a leak in my rear diff, but having trouble identifying whether its an R160 or R180 diff. It has a 40.9 ratio from what I can see. Any ideas please? Joe

  24. Wotcha and welcome Matt - Six stars is six stars, you would still get a wave from me ๐Ÿ™‚
  25. Nice idea but at the moment the garage won't do that, and I'm well past the days when I'd tackle it myself..
