Hi all, I’m new to this forum having just taken purchase of a JDM 05 Forester XT 2.0. Is having issues linked to my throttle pedal. I’m after a replacement. Serial number: 36010SA001. Between 2002-2008 is compatible. Would greatly appreciate any help on this.

Would this JDM forester be a Sport Shift automatic?

Referencing the part number supplied - 36010SA001 the only equivalent UK item is fitted to the MY05 2.5L XT Auto or Manual ( earlier models had cable throttles rather than DBW. Later models are a different setup)

@don1952 It has a tiotronic Gearbox, is that the same thing?

Sorry I’m new to these foresters and to their mechanics. So are you saying the 2.5L cars also share the same throttle assembly? I do believe I have the electric version of the older cable system. I’m guessing that’s what DBW refers to? Might you be able to get hold of one of these? Cheers

Sport Shift (SS) is Subaru's early tiptronic.
DBW - drive by wire throttle control

You would be correct in that the same part is only fitted to the UK MY05 2.5L XT pre-facelift model BUT NOT the later facelift models. (UK only got the 2.5 from MY05 onwards, so revised answer to question)

You could inquire at your local dealers as to the parts availability - price looks to be about £220 inc VAT, so you may be looking at getting one from a breakers.

Out of interest, from where did you get the original part number from ? As a quick search found this

Thanks for clarifying that. Yeah it’s finding a dealer who has the part, I have a few local to me so will see if they can find one, but from initial conversations with them, could be difficult.

So I actually got the part number from my actual throttle assembly its self. It’s identical to the one in that link, including the part number. Only downside is, it’s in Latvia, 25 plus days to deliver. I would have loved to have the car the Xmas journeys. All this is to say I need the whole new component, it may just be a tiny fault/wire at fault within it. My local Scooby specialist is going to take a look at it this week. Fingers crossed.
