  1. Transmission and Driveline
    Hello everybody. For a week or so, the machine has had two strange problems. 1) When the machine is cold, the friction pedal is very soft, but after a few kilometers it returns to normal, without problems. 2) Sometimes, very rarely (especially a cold) when I reverse, I feel like the gear...

    So I was driving normally down 35mph roads, not stressing the car or driving it hard at all, when I came to a stoplight. When it turned green & I shifted from first to second I noticed it suddenly felt different - it feels like 2nd is 'lower' than it usually is as in it needs sort of pushed down...

    Hey all ! I recently bought a '99 Forester (yes I know its old but she is in amazing condition) and I want to use it as my daily driver, and weekend camping vehicle with my pup. When I purchased the vehicle I was told the shifter bushings are original and kind of worn in. I was looking to...

    Hey all, Please don't come on down me too hard for this. About a year back I went off roading and did a trail that was way too much for the forester. Live and learn. Anyways, while on the trail I was burning my clutch pretty bad to get through some obstacles. I started to smell something, I...

    I had the clutch replaced on my ‘10 forester (102k miles on the car) less than a year ago. Just recently, when I push the clutch pedal all the way in I can feel it grinding a little bit. It still shifts fine and everything but when the pedal is all the way in it grinds on something. Could it be...
  6. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    It's been quite a while since I've gotten the clutch on my Subaru Forester 2008 changed but i've been having significant issues using the clutch since. The pedal needs to be pressed significantly to engage it, but moving it a mm off from that engagement point will stall the car. It was not...

    I have a 2012 Subaru Forester with Manual Transmission. Lately, I noticed that when I accelerate full throttle in second gear, the clutch will not fully engage, and I will smell burning metal. I am in Vancouver, Canada. I have three questions about this: 1. What is the expected lifetime in...

    Hi! I think it's going to be time for a clutch replacement soon. A little studder here and there is why I think it's coming. That and the mileage- 300,000km (I'm the second owner). Diesel 6sp manual. The synchros are slow to respond while changing gear. I try not to force them, but they seem...

    While I have my transmission out, Im planning on putting a new clutch in. Are the clutches interchangeable with a US made WRX clutch of the same year (01) with my JDM st/b?

    Just replaced my pressure plate, friction disk, and throwout bearing. Got the kit from autozone. I put it all back together and the fork that the slave cylinder pushes (connects to the throwout bearing) has a lot of play in it. The clutch pedal drops to the floor and does not return. I tried...
  11. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hi all, just working through a number of issues on my recently purchased forester. One issue is that the car has a high pitched screech which increases/decreases when the accelerator pedal is pressed, and occurs when the clutch isn’t depressed. The noise decreases when the clutch is engaged...

    Was driving today and the clutch went all the way to the floor and I was unable to get the car into gear... Had to get it flatbed towed home and it's currently sitting disabled in my driveway, awaiting service. I looked around and I can't really find any information on fixing this myself, it...

    Strangest thing. Husband replaced brakes months ago.. no problems. Axles need replacement as well as an odd clutch issue. Car was running ok with exception of feeling like clutch pedal sticking about 1/2 way. Stopped at store and car wouldn’t go anywhere. Went back next day for car and it...

    Howdy there! Firstly I want to say I've been searching multiple channels to find info but no dice! I recently bought a 2010 Forester X with the five-speed manual. Overall the car has been very well maintained and is in quite good condition considering what I paid for it. However, it does have...

    Earlier today I was driving, suddenly noticed my clutch pedal losing pressure. Was able to pull over immediately in a parking lot. Turned the car off and opened the hood, noticed engine was kinda steamy/smokey. Looked okay, didn't find any leaks. Stepped on clutch while off, acting normal. Start...

    Whenever the engine is running there is a squeaking noise that sounds like something rubbing when it is spinning. Like an "e-e-e-e-e-e-e", and fairly high pitched. If I depress the clutch pedal this noise completely dissapears which suggested to me something relating to the clutch is rubbing on...

    A while back my clutch started intermediately slipping with no smell, which was odd. Took it to a transmission shop, the clutch was unaligned and burnt, so I got it replaced. The next day the clutch starts slipping again, so i take it back and do some research. Next likely reason is the center...

    I got the P2763 code as well as the P0700 code on my 2014 Subaru Forester Touring with Xdrive and 122k miles. Day 1 - 30 miles into the car. How serious is this? The dealer mentioned swapping out the clutch control module. I'm concerned its not just an electronic component. I saw some people had...

    I have a 2002 Forester MT and the clutch has been feeling weird. I noticed over the summer after driving for 30+ minutes the clutch pedal's feel changed dramatically. Normally the clutch pedal would feel consistent all the way and bite in the normal spot, about halfway letting the pedal out...
