  1. Found the details sent through from the dealers. Its marked in the first picture and was part 42084A. Easy to get but a bugger to install. Best of luck with it.
  2. Hi all. Just had a run of issues with my 2010 diesel. It has gradually been using more and more fuel and the mpg has dropped down by 7mpg. Eventually found what I hope is the problem. The suction control valve on the fuel pump is prone to failing. It has some plating inside that corrodes and causes over fuelling. It often forces diesel into the sump and thins the oil and kills the engine. If you have noticed a drop in economy check your oil and see if the levels are up. Mine was way high so need to order a new one sensor on Monday. Subaru are aware of the issue but mentioned nothing about it when I spoke to them. They have them on back order with no date for when they will be in at £230!!! I will be getting mine elsewhere.
  3. Here is a picture of the offending article if it helps.
  4. Hi all. My 2010 diesel Outback has a fuel leak and I cant see anywhere what the part is called that its leaking from. It is leaking behind the tank , above the rear near side wishbone. There is a metal bulb with a pipe in at the top and out at the bottom. It looks like that has corroded but what is it called? Any help would be much appreciated. Also has anyone replaced one before and is it a nightmare to get at it? Looks very tight up in there. Thanks Jim
  5. Thanks Greenmamba. It was indeed the switch on the other side that was bent. Now I just need to get to the bottom of the 6th gear not showing up on the dash. Dont know if it has any bearing on anything but its annoying.
  6. I will check later on. Thanks. Didnt notice a second one in there.
  7. Thanks Mr B. Tried just pushing the bonnet switch by hand fully and still the same. Its not showing any doors open on the dash. Should it show the bonnet is open on the dash anywhere or is it just boot and doors shown?
  8. So just had a new abs pump fitted on my 2010 Outback diesel estate. It was a Legacy pump but all numbers etc matched so should be fine. When my wife got home from the garage and tried to lock the car with the remote it beeps loudly for about 30 seconds and then the alarm goes. Cant believe its anything to do with the abs pump but any ideas on what it could be. Also just noticed that it is not recognising going into 6th gear on the dash and just says its in 5th. Locking the car using the key works but then the alarm is not armed. Any ideas would be very welcome. Tried disabling the alarm by holding the unlock button on the drivers door and opening the door but that does nothing.

  10. Hi. Does anyone know if an abs unit from a 2014 legacy would fit on the 2010 outback. All I can see in the images on the ad for the replacement one are the numbers for the pump body but there are no images of the control module. The numbers on the pump end are the same. Are there any differences in the control module? Thanks Jim
  11. Had it checked out properly and the abs unit has a fault so will either need to replace or have it reconditioned.
  12. Any trailer that is heavy enough to make a difference needs to be braked by law so I dont see any reason to mod anything on the car. I certainly have never heard anyone doing anything like that before.
  13. Even a bike rack on the back sets ours off. Does my nut in.
  14. Went over to the garage today and the codes say that there is no power to the systems. Tried wiping the codes but still the lights are on. Going back tomorrow to see if we can get it on the ramp and have a good look to see if there are any loose wires or connections. So bored of car issues. Its the nicest car I have ever owned but its costing plenty sadly.
  15. Hi all. After recently getting my 2010 outback diesel back from the garage having had a new clutch fitted my wife returned home tonight and once parked tried to lock the car. Nothing happened and no lights or anything. Turns out that the negative terminal on the battery had not been tightened and the terminal had jumped off as she was driving home. I tightened it back up and now the abs light is on, the electronic parking brake warning light is on and the vehicle dynamics warning light is on. All staying on when the car is running. Could this be due to the terminal coming off? Could it have done any other damage? Thanks for any advice.
