  1. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hi, I bought a 2005 Forester X (NA) from Facebook Marketplace a week or so ago. It's been pretty neglected from what it looks like, the exterior isn't great, but that's not too much of an issue for me; it comes with no real service history; there's no knocks from the engine; there's a hole in...
  2. Brakes
    Hi, I've just bought a 2005 Subaru Forester from Facebook Marketplace of all places. To be completely honest, the car's a bit of a poop show and I'm hoping to get it back to full health over the next few months. I'm based in the UK, so the MOT report had a minor advisory for a pitted front...
  3. Suspension and Handling
    Hello All! Recently bought an automatic 2005 Forester XS at the end of last year. It's my daily drive, however I live in the PNW and value off road capabilities so I was looking at doing some modifications to bolster it in that aspect. After reading posts on here I'm considering a 2 inch ADF...

  6. Sourcing Parts & Accessories
    Hello. I’m wondering if anybody would know about how compatible forester parts are between the 2011 Forester SH and the 2005 Forester XS SG5. I have an ‘05 now and was offered an ‘11 recently for parts $800(has motor issues). Just wondering if I’d be saving a whole lot of money having a newer...
  7. EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    Looking to replace the timing belt on my EJ251 engine as I just recently acquired the vehicle and it is currently at 114,000kms with the service log book not stating what exactly has been done at each interval, so I am thinking it is better to assume it has yet to have its timing belt replaced...
