  2. ('03-'05) 2003 - poor gas mileage?

    Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty
    @hank a couple questions to start with: [1] Is the CEL on? If so, what codes do you have? [2] Is Subaru recommended maintenance up to date? BTW, my son's '03 X has around 30K miles on it! Bobby... ['07 FSXT Member Journal] ['03 X Member Journal]
  3. ('98-'00) Loud painful beep from center dash every 30 seconds... 1998 S - SOLVED!

    Interior and Electronics
    @Nuieve thank you for updating your thread with the solution! I have to admit, I've never heard that before! Always good to have thread closure... "the rest of the story!" Bobby... ['07 FSXT Member Journal] ['03 X Member Journal]
  4. ('14-'18) 2015 - Battery Deep cycled twice already, how long will the battery last?

    Lighting and Electrical
    @drdavidzhang I wanted to get away from the usual conventional wet battery replacement. Unlike the factory battery, most aftermarket wet batteries will leak... expel acid thru the breather vents. This makes a mess of the battery cables & the body sheet metal the battery sits on. True, the...
  5. ('09-'13) 2009 - One of the Mufflers stopped working?

    EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    @Bovka I see you're located in Asia, Mongolia & you listed your model year as 2008, which in the States... USDM would be a 2009. No dual exhaust in 2008 USDM Foresters. Looking at the exhaust diagram below, not a whole lot there, other than the muffler. Any chance something... insects or...
  6. ('14-'18) 2015 - Battery Deep cycled twice already, how long will the battery last?

    Lighting and Electrical
    After seeing this thread & the mention of the higher cost of AGM batteries, I checked what I paid for the Optima Yellow Top batteries we have. The best deal at the time was on Amazon, with free shipping. • April 2012 - $180 ◄ Installed in my son's '03 X • May 2012 - $180 ◄ Installed in our '95...

  8. ('03-'05) ('06-'08) Double DIN dash top POD

    Interior and Electronics
    @subiesurya I'm not surprised, as I've had zero luck on that Car-Parts.com website, yet many people have referred me there. I thought it was just me or what I was looking for? You can also try direct messaging Subaru parts sellers on eBay, many are wrecking yards & auto recyclers. Bobby...
  9. ('03-'05) 2003 - sunroof not working - fuse?

    Interior and Electronics
    @Akid123 as noted by @Kevin the power source is the same for the power windows & the sunroof. Use the wiring diagram below to troubleshoot your sunroof electrical issue. Bobby... ['07 FSXT Member Journal] ['03 X Member Journal]
  10. ('06-'08) 2006 - LL Bean Key Fob Replacement?

    Interior and Electronics
    @bricci Lucky for you, only the XT got the immobilizer security! You can program the remote fob yourself, but only a Subaru dealership or lock shop can program the immobilizer security chip to the vehicle. You can view my remote fob programing procedure here in my Member Journal, The...
  11. ('03-'05) ('06-'08) Double DIN dash top POD

    Interior and Electronics
    @subiesurya no way I'd pay that eBay asking price of $225! If you want to buy used, you could look here: Car-Part.com - Used Auto Parts Market Bobby... ['07 FSXT Member Journal] ['03 X Member Journal]
  12. ('01-'02) 2001 - Alternator that can handle [email protected]?

    Lighting and Electrical
    @cr445671 you could upgrade your stock 75A alternator with a stock 110A, 2006+ XT alternator. Bobby... ['07 FSXT Member Journal] ['03 X Member Journal]

  16. ('06-'08) 2008 - Radio Antenna lacks reception

    Interior and Electronics
    @jebediah was the stock radio... head unit replaced with an aftermarket replacement? If yes, it's possible the power to the antenna amplifier wasn't connected. I made that error way back when I installed a new head unit in my '03 X. The reception was poor on AM, which I listen to a lot...
  17. ('14-'18) 2015 - Battery Deep cycled twice already, how long will the battery last?

    Lighting and Electrical
    @Botnik those conventional wet batteries tend to loose water over time, even those "maintenance free batteries", which will lead to their death. If I drove more, retired now, I'd replace that old battery. Bobby... ['07 FSXT Member Journal] ['03 X Member Journal]
  18. ('14-'18) 2016 - Best place to purchase a rear bumper cover?

    Exterior and Body
    @GeorgeofSacramento check out Car-Part.com - Used Auto Parts Market. Some swear by this place, but I have to admit I've had no luck finding parts there... still, might be worth a try! Bobby... ['07 FSXT Member Journal] ['03 X Member Journal]
  19. ('14-'18) 2015 - Battery Deep cycled twice already, how long will the battery last?

    Lighting and Electrical
    For the record. The original Subaru battery is still installed in my '07 FSXT. I bought a replacement Optima Yellow Top, which we have installed in our other 2 vehicles, but it's been in the garage on a battery tender for years. I thought about installing it this year... or not! Bobby...
