New to Subaru


Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I bought my first Subaru earlier this year, a 2005 Forester 2.5 XT. It's a great car, plenty of go and practical with it.


My only problem is that it recently developed a clunking sound from underneath which has been identified as worn propshaft bearings. I called my nearest Subaru dealer and was told that they could only supply the complete propshaft and they quoted me over £800 for the part.


My first question is, can the rubber doughnut containing the bearings be replaced without replacing the whole prop shaft? or is it just too big a job to consider? 


Alternatively, could anyone recommend an alternative/more cost effective parts supplier please? 


Are there any other options, for example; do any other Subaru models share the same propshaft?


I would greatly appreciate any help you could provide.


Many thanks,
