I picked up my new ride today - a 2007 Forester X 🙂.
This isn't my first Subaru - had a non turbo Legacy saloon a good while ago - but my first Forester.
And I have a couple of questions I'm hoping you can help me out with! (Thanks so much in advance)
A) What's this all about under the passenger seat? There are 4 bolts in the floor and what looks like a 6-pin audio cable. Would there have been a multidisk changer in the other originally? The thing in the top/middle of the pic is a movable bit of metal with some tape around the end. I've had a feel around and can only assume that it was once part of a bracket?
B) One of the keys has a dead battery. Do we have to do anything special once replaced to make sure that it disarms the car? In the owners manual, there's something about a code that would have been printed on something that attached to the keys. We don't have this - is that a problem?
C) Speaking of arming the car... We've got this entertaining keypad. We've also got a booklet all about arming the system, changing the auto locking, beeping etc. Before we start prodding anything, is this likely to be the Subaru alarm? There aren't any pictures of the keypad unit in the booklet...
Thank you! I am sure there will be more in the future, but that's a start for now...
