Subaru Model

  1. Hopefully someone wise will point me in the right direction please.... UK Legacy estate 2011 (last production version...) . Key fobs ( both) won’t lock or unlock car, so have simply used key . All fine. For second time in about two months, I come to unlock car, open door, and it seems to have set the immobiliser on its own...the alarm siren goes off , plus indicators etc. Don’t know , but might be the battery is low. Not used much in this COVID lockdown! But now the car is disabled and won’t start, just p*ssing off the neighbours every time I open the door to try and sort it. So, how
  2. Hi, i am looking to buy a 2009 or 2010 Subaru Legacy, and i want to know wich of those diesels still has the crankshaft problem
  3. Hi all, I’m the owner of The Shine Guys, a mobile detailing company in Wales I’ve just bought a 2003 legacy Gl that I’d like to operate from so I will be converting it into a van. I will be posting the build thread here! Any detailing services required drop me a message on 07715328072, a discount will be added for customers gained from this forum. I would like to do a free paint correction and protection, to someone local! to be considered feel free to message me on what’s app with a pic of your wildest scooby and your location. Thanks Chris
  4. Hi all, Experiencing an ongoing issue with my '08 Legacy estate: Every couple of months my keys fall out of sync with the car meaning I can't unlock it remotely or deactivate the immobiliser without using the PIN code. Initially I assumed the issue was with the keys, but the local Subaru garage have been through all the normal fixes and the problem persists. Each time they reprogram the keys everything works fine for at most a few months then randomly it's back to square one. Starting to suspect the issue lies with the car rather than the keys? If anyone has any potential insight it would
  5. Subaru Outback / legacy facelift (06-09) Honeycomb Grill £160 posted U.K. mainland .
  6. Hello all, I have an 06 Subaru Legacy 3.0R Spec B called Astrid. 😍 but she has a concerning issue, the handbrake will at random times just disable itself. There could be between a day or weeks between this occurring. It's happened maybe 6 or 7 times now. Usually it disables itself about 2minutes or so after it has been applied. Thankfully 🤞, everytime it has happened it's happened on flat ground or only a moderate slope where I could save her causing me large expense. She's a tad clumsy. 🤦‍♀️ The first time it happened I damn near sh*t myself, I was completely alone in my car, l
  7. Very sadly I have decided to part with my Sports Legacy after 11 years. Brilliant car, much loved, regularly serviced and full of good things. Brand new fuel tank following Subaru recall, but now needs a new exhaust. 101K miles. Bodywork not in pristine condition. Happy to answer questions or provide more photos. £1,800 ono.
  8. I just made a ridiculous impulse purchase of a 1997 2.5L AWD Legacy. Good points: The interior is lovely, black leather, good condition. It has an aerial that goes up and down when you press a button and this works. The sunroof works. There is above legal minimum tread on the tyres. It has a red kangaroo bottle opener key ring because the lady who drove it was an Australian. Comical gear lever that says "POWER" and this looks to be original. It's mine, I don't have to share. Bad points: Bit of rust on both back wheel arches I don't know how long the bumper will stay
  9. Hello all, In a couple of weeks I will be picking up an imported 2001 Legacy B4 Twin Turbo with a stick shift. The car is in very good nick but I will of course be after immediately servicing the usual items, air & oil filters, motor oil, spark plugs, brake pads and a coolant flush as the reservoir tank looks a tad manky. Any advice you could offer on the purchasing of these parts would be greatly appreciated. Also I understand being a JDM car the engine is tuned for 100 Ron fuel, am I alright filling up with 99 Ron? The car will not be hammered. Cheers! Henry...
  10. Hello Scooby People, I have recently dived into the world of Subaru ownership. After overcoming the temptation to buy one of the abundant dirt cheap saab aero estates, I have purchased a Subaru Legacy R Spec.B (UKDM) for a very "reasonable" price. "Why have you put reasonable in quotation marks?" I hear you ask. Well, there are some issues I knew about when I bought the car and there are some that I have found in the last few days of ownership, so it may end up being a money pit Issues I know about: Front O/S inner CV boot in two pieces, CV grease everywhere! Rear N/S
  11. Drop links, sway bar links, anti-roll bars - different names, same job. But if you want to change them, it's actually quite easy to do. And they are pretty much the same from model to model. An easy job to do if you're competent with a spanner, have some decent kit and a bit of muscle. You don't need to take the wheels off, nor do you need heat or an air spanner. You might do... The symptoms are side to side rolling at high speed corners, and more noticeable, feeling every stone you drive over. A jolting, jarring ride. And you'll never get the tracking right as there is too much pl
  12. Any used parts for this car to make it look and sound better?
  13. So my Forester has died, I've rebuilt the engine and still having problems, and now at the point where I can't be without a car any longer. I've not got a lot of budget so would be looking for a second hand number, up to around £10k is a sensible amount i can afford to loan. So the question is, what to go for? The current garage is a 2013 2.0D XV - which my partner drives daily and I drive when she is not. Plus a 2004 2.0 Turbo Forester XT. The forester was LPG'd so returned the equivalent of 44mpg making it a great daily, but having 190,000 miles on it makes me question th
  14. Hi everyone,Thought a little introduction was necessary as I've lurked on the forum a few times now as a guest gathering opinions on the legacy and have finally taken the plunge.As of next weekend (when I pick it up) I will be the proud owner of a 2006 legacy 3.0R spec B. Unfortunately, in my excitement of viewing, test drive, deposit I forgot to take any pictures to show off my new pride and joy but I will remember to next weekend and get some posted!!Still amazed that even after 150k the car felt and drove like new and absolutely everything worked like it was just out today the showroom! Muc
  15. Hi guys, I'm giving away Subaru Legacy S401 2.0 Twin Turbo Front & Rear Brake Discs & Pads. I've bought the set for my Legacy, the plan was to update the braking system but I unfortunately flew off the road and the discs have been sitting in their boxes for a while now, just collecting dust and taking space in the garage. The parts were bought from, feel free to check their details there. If you are willing to come to Stevenage and collect them - great. In case you want to get them by post the postage is for you to cover.
  16. For what it is worth I drive an old spec b Legacy that I found looking very sad down south a couple of years ago. It is amazing what a new front bumper, stainless steel exhaust, brake overhaul, some 'smart' bodywork and loads of tlc has done for it. Being an older car I don't get heavily stung for the road tax and insurance companies seem to view it very kindly too. Now it is nicely sorted and while it will never be pretty it, it is tremendous fun!!!
  17. Afternoon all, my name is Paul and I have just joined the horizontally opposed world of goodness that is Subaru ownership I have a 2008 Legacy 3.0R Wagon Any tips for a noob like myself would be greatly appreciated
  18. I have a 2004 Legacy with a EJ253 engine from the UK. A while back, I brought it back to Spain with me to use on another project I was working on. Since then, it has not been able to turn on. My friends and I thought that either the car keys were out of battery or the keys need to be reprogrammed because the remote will not unlock the car without physically inserting the key. We changed the batteries on the keys, but still nothing. Normally this wouldn't be an issue but this car appears to have an immobilizer. Is the immobilizer the problem, or just by chance, something else went bad when we a
  19. Hi folks, looking to sell my 56 plate 3.0R Spec B Legacy. Silver saloon with the 6 speed manual and black leather.Only done 75k miles with full history from Subaru and a couple of Japanese specialists. Never been to a back street garage in its life. Apart from a mark on the rear bumper which a previous owner has touched up the car is immaculate. Certainly myself and my friend I bought it from never touched it with a brush, always washed by hand with a soft mitt. Interior is spotless, never been smoked in.It's had a custom exhaust from the Y piece back, pipes fit the look of the car better now
  20. Hello! This summer I bought my first Subaru, a 2006 Legacy saloon. I completely love it, however there is one thing which annoys me. I don't know how to play music from my phone, put in a DAB radio, or make handsfree calls, since the radio and climate control is all one unit. Does anyone have a solution? I've realised it might have to be a custom job, but if anyone has any clue or anything it would be much appreciated! I also was wanted to get an OBDII reader for the car since in the past I have hooked them up to apps on my phone (DashCommand, but maybe there's a preferred one..?) to monito
  21. Hi was told about owners clubs on Facebook by another Subaru owner in shell near Attleborough, was driving a Impreza sport special at the time. He recommended the Impreza club but personally I have a White legacy so I think this forum is more appropriate :) will put some pictures up when I'm on a computer that will allow me to blank out some digits on the number plate, all I could do with what I have now is crop out half the car :/ also know another person in Norwich who uses a red Impreza estate as a delivery vehicle for a well known company :)
  22. Hi Guys Just wanted to say hi and show off my new purchase. I had some money to spend on a weekend/track car and found one that I fell in love with, and luckily the owner was interested in selling. I am now the proud owner 0f a 1991 BC5 RS RA legacy, reasonably stock, needs some work on the exterior but drives really well and has had full engine rebuild about 30k ago!
  23. My 2005 Legacy Tourer is very good except that the front valance is very rusty, as in falling apart, and I am not having much joy in finding anyone who will repair it. Seems panels are not available. Anyone else had this and found a solution. It looks like a very difficult bit to fabricate. It supports the radiator and the undertray.
  24. Hello I'm shortly to acquire a 2004 legacy 3.0 auto saloon from my mum who is giving up driving at the age of 85. My dad had the car from about 6 months old but he died a few years back. It needs a new exhaust urgently but I don't want a noisy one and she's been quoted around £1200 for a Subaru one. I've seen that there are much cheaper after market ones e.g. Gerlach but they only seem to be for the estate models. Does anyone know a good place to get either a cheaper steel one for this car or a quiet stainless one? The car is currently in North Yorkshire near Skipton. I plan to keep it for man
