Subaru Model

  1. Hi All, I've had engine warning light come on and my Cruise light flash repeatedly. I checked my ODB2 finding P0420 - Powertrain - Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1) fault. My local garage advised that this could be the lamda sensor failing rather than the cat, so I replaced that and cleared the fault code. Subsequently I've had the engine warning light come back on, and the fault code return, so having spoken to my garage again they've advised the cat needs to be replaced. What are my options here? The car has sone 105k miles and I'd like to get ano
  2. Hi, It's my first post on here, was wondering if anyone had any thoughts or ideas on best steps to take with the situation I'm in. I have a 59' reg (2010) Outback with the 3.6 EZ36 engine and I live in Aviemore, Scotland. I bought the car a couple of years back with 67k miles, 5k later the coolant light began to illuminate intermittently, this got worse to the point where it was flashing (indicating to pull over let the engine cool). The local garage carried out a pressure test, which came back fine, I proceeded to take it to the Dealer in Inverness who told me it's likely that the h
  3. In these days of having to ford roads suffering from flash flooding, I was wondering if anyone knows if there is an official Subaru wading depth for Outbacks?
  4. Hi Outback owners and enthusiastics. I own 2011 Outback. I came across the noise from the left passanger mirror. Both mirrors work fine, just the left one doesn't fold anymore. I think it has to do something with folding motor. Does anyone know if it's fixable without taking it to Subaru service? I tried to google replacement which I could easily change but was unlucky to find the exact one I have on my car. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks Hanys
  5. I have a set of headlight units for a 2012 outback for sale. Excellent condition and working order. I took them off my Outback when I exported it to France last year (had to change to left hand drive versions to put French plates on it). Brought them back to the UK when I escaped the French lockdown in March and would now like to sell them. Based in Bromsgrove, West Midlands. The car they came from is here too at present but that’s not for sale. £300 ono
  6. Hey guys. Got a bit of a strange one. Recently bought my 2.0D 2010 Subaru Outback Manual, and after I've been driving the car for a while (about 2 or so hours) across the day, the car violently judders when I move off the line in first gear. Has anyone else had this problem? Eg. I can go on a long(ish) drive on the motorway, and the clutch and car will be fine when I leave. Once I pull into a town, I change nothing about my driving style, and the car starts shuddering. In my opinion Its a clutch issue, and I can more or less get around it if I slowly get the car rolling
  7. Hello all, Questions pretty self-explanatory; I recently picked up a '13 Outback SX which I'm very pleased with but I want to swap out the stereo. It came with an aftermarket already fitted (Pioneer AVIC-F840BT) which is functionally sound for a unit from 2012 but I can't upgrade the maps, and the Bluetooth seems a little intermittent at times, so I'm looking for a solid Android-based unit ideally that I can Waze on and anything else I decide to sideload because I don't like the idea of shelling out £500+ for the Waze-enabled Pioneer units. Anyone have any suggestions that mig
  8. In the dark, in the rain, I reversed into a black 2ft high pole (who puts a black pole up in a car park?) Which cracked the plastic scratch guard. Has anyone replaced this, is one readily available, and is it glued on?
  9. I am the proud owner of a Subaru Outback 2.5 2007 SE. and love it. But I do have a few gripes about it. I cannot seem to be able to Buy OEM splash guards / mud flaps / gravel guards you choose. I've seen some for sale at S Pecht subaru stealership £65 plus VAT and delivery for the front set and the same for the rear totaling £171. It seems a little steep considering the choice for every model after mine on Ebay / Amazon etc any one know if there are any reasonably priced ones anywhere els?
  10. Hello, does anyone know if the Outback currently on sale in the UK is based on the Subaru Global Platform (i.e the same as the 2020 US outback)? I'm impressed by what i've seen and heard of the newewst US incarnation of this car but not sure the UK is at quite the same standard yet..
  11. Hi All, new to the forum and come seeking your expert help pleas. I’ve got a completely standard 2010 Outback SE, so far so dull. After someone kindly wiped their car down one side it’s back from the body-shop, naming no names but they’ve been pretty shoddy and I’m putting together a list of gripes to take back to my insurer. I think having had the rear bumper off, they’ve lost some trim bits around the wheel arch, sorry for the pics of a muddy car but I think there should maybe be some splash guard, trim or something where the holes now are. Or have they just got the wheel arch
  12. Hello There's a forum for everything isn't there? I've lost count of the amount I've joined.. So I was looking for a 4 wheel drive estate: Audi Allroad (overpriced) Volvo XC70 (too old manish), Skoda (too Skoda) Jaguar X-type (see Volvo) etc. Then came upon reviews for the Outback and magically all the boxes were ticked. I bought a 2009 one with low mileage and a FMDSH a few weeks a go and love it - the sound from that boxer engine, the handling, the look and feel plus i did a bit of grassy/muddy field crossing with it yesterday without a blip. I have only one question thats

  14. Hello - new to this forum - all looks good so far. Need some advice please: 2007 2.5 SE manual outback making a real werring noise from the back (my wife describes its as having a motor bike behind you the whole time). Starts in around 30mph the gets louder as you go faster and its slowly getting worse. So far I have tried: 1. Checking the centre bearing on the prop shaft: Turns freely - not that 2. Changing the passenger side rear wheel bearing (hub assembly) - where the it sounded like it was coming from if you sat in the back - not that. Now wondering if it is
  15. 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
  16. We’ve had Subarus - Imprezas, Legacy and currently Outback - for over 30 years. Never had much trouble with them until the current 61 diesel Outback which recently displayed several warning lights on the dash. The garage we’ve always used (not a Subaru dealer) checked it - on diagnostics they said - and decided it was just a warning light malfunction. The lights came back on just before we were due to go on holiday so we the left car with them. On our return garage says it was a glow plug failure and one broke as they tried to get it out. They’ve now had it 3 weeks and say it will be upward

  18. Aarrrrrrgh! My 2008 Outback 2.5 diesel has died after the oil pump failed. The pain is I just spent a lump on it over the last year inc; 4 brand new tyres, new turbo, new clutch, new brakes and pads etc Subaru delaer and other garages have quoted me twice the vehicles worth to repair / replace... looks like i have to offload it! Such a nice, well looked after car - was my girlfriends weapon of choice for nearly 3yrs (I borrowed it whenever allowed) and invested in it expecting more loyal service. Have a look at the ad - would like for it to go to a good home to be rebuilt
  19.

  20. Hi all, new to the forum and recently purchased our first Outback. It's a 2005 2.5 petrol, manual, non turbo. We have developed a quite severe knocking/clunking/trying to jump sideways feeling when turning at low speed, forwards or backwards, either direction. It sort of feels like you're running either on a flat tyre or running over large cats eyes! The car also has a loud-ish whining noise that increases with speed. I have serviced the vehicle and changed the front drive shafts as there was slight wear in the CV joints - this has made no difference. The only play I can fi
  21. Hi, After forty years of driving other things I've just got my first Subaru. It's a 2007 Outback 3.0 with just over 100k on the clock. First impressions are great - really impressed with the way it handles (and the "Go Faster" button on the steering wheel). I hope to be able to contribute to the forums once I know a bit more about the car but I'll start with a question. What colour is it? It looks silvery but says Grey on the V5. I can't find a paint code anywhere on it. There are a lot of minor dings/scratches that need sorting out so I want to get the correct colour. Have added a
  22. Hello, I've literally just joined this forum. I recently traded in my 2010 2.0D for an ex-demo but effectively new 2015 2.0D automatic with all the bells and whistles except a spare wheel. It came with 225/60/18 wheels and Bridgestone tyres. I'm looking for a spare wheel to carry as I don't like or trust the injection foam repair system and I drive down to the Alps in the winter. Does anyone know if there is anywhere I can buy an 18 inch space saving wheel or even a full size 18 inch steel wheel? I took off my rear alloy today to see if it will fit in the well and it does! And the spare
  23. Hi Folks, I've just bought a 2006 Outback, 3L auto and I am seriously impressed...what a car!! Comfortable, quiet and quick!! I have signed up on here in the hope of gaining some knowledge from the greater minds that are hopefully hanging around on here.... I got it for what I thought was a great price but it does have issues....but hopefully all treatable for not too many pennies!! I thought I'd start with the easy things and fit a new brake light bulb but one of the clips that hold the fitting in place is damaged and I don't think I can get it out without breaking the clip.....could
  24. Hi, i need a starter motor for suabru outback 1999 2l . My starter was making cranking noises but it didn't turn the motor so i don't know whats the problem maybe selenoid or something else. I don't want to mess with until i get a spare one but i can start my scoobie if i pull my car or push real hard :D. I saw new ones aroud 150 and decided to look for used ones, maybe someone has one of them.
