  1. Transmission and Driveline
    I have a 2017 base model 2.5i that I use for off-roading. The base model doesn't have X-Mode and I am wondering if it's possible to retrofit it. It seems like I'd need the control/display panel from one with X-mode, plus either re-programming the VDC or replacing the VDC control module with one...
  2. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hello, I just replaced the wheel bearing (rear - right) & the brake pads on my Forester XT 2014. They were really worn out. I even got ABS, HA, & VDC lights come on.

I was debating getting a lsd but I also have read they are not the most effective. And a LSD would only help split torque in the rear. If only I could...
  6. Offroad Fozzies
    I've looked pretty extensively online about how much a forester off road and done some research about the drive train with the goal of seeing how it stacks against 'more serious' 4wds, specifically those with central diff locking. I have heard that turning off VDC can be helpful in some slippery...
