  1. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hey team, I’ve been driving the standard 2.0L 4spd auto foz for just over a year now and I recently had a tricky situation with a flat battery. We had to push the flat car about 5m so we could jump start it, to do this we used the shift lock to change the gear to neutral. When I got home I took...
  2. Transmission and Driveline
    I have a 2011 Forester and last year the engine was destroyed in Colorado due to the Notorious problem with these vehicles up burning oil. This was my own fault as I hadn’t checked it in a while.

    Hi guys I'm looking to upgrade from the open rear diff on my NA 2011 forester.

I've put about 1100 miles and today I shift out of 4th into neutral to come to a stop, as I take the clutch out it feels like the gear is still engaged.

    Just took my 2011 Forester to the dealership to get the airbag recall done. When I picked it up though, the airbag light was still on.

    Woke up to my battery dead this morning and my headlights are on. The key is not in the ignition and the headlight switch is set to OFF, yet the headlights are on. I do not have the tricky "Parking Light Switch" that is on older subaru's steering wheel, so it's not like that has been...
