I plan on keeping my Forester for another 10 years if possible. So I'd like to hold on to the part in the event that the leak does come back in that time.I have the same leak, tried this fix just without cutting out the part of the metal tube that is leaking (just tried going over with new rubber hose). It slowed the leak way down but still needing to refill resivour about every two weeks. I was actually just talking to the mechanic about this problem while I was pumping my gas and I was going to drop the car off next week. If you don't think you will ever need part mind selling it (if it fits an 06, your pics look the same as mine).
Has anyone actually replaced the entire part assembly pictured above? I have a bad leak and ordered it but it looks like it may be tricky to get to the fittings. It’s an 06 WRX. Same problem area as all that have posted here. Bought some flared metric crowfoot attachments. Anyways just looking to get some insight if anything else needs to be removed etc. Jack plate is off just gotta get a better look. Thanks in advanceI called my local subaru dealer parts store. part was $66 locally. going to pick one up eventually. my leak has stopped though for now, Murphys Law states it will leak again so thinking proactively. Got my transmission lines ready to replace too.
