The Son of a mate of mine works for a dealership in Sydney.
He has recently been performing warranty repairs on the FB25 engines for oil leaks.
The words used were leaks in or around the "cam carrier". Also sound like he has performed more than one?

Any news from other parts of the world regarding this issue?

Yes, just happened to me.

Yes, Just took my Forrester in for its first service post warranty, ~ 3-4 months. Oil leak from the Cam Carrier = $2300. Car has done 40k km only.

Not cool.

I have submitted a request to Subaru to fix under "good will" but we will see.

So yes, this is a thing.

$2300 bucks? really!?.... :icon_eek:

I had a leak in that area on the driver side that was fixed under warranty. It's leaking again, though. :icon_rolleyes:

Its still under warranty but I will be fixing it myself at some point.

Dealers suck.

More to it than just a rocker cover gasket in some instances.

Yeah, I was looking a little closer the other day and didn't notice the extra "layer" between the valve cover and the head itself. Looks fun to fix. :icon_cry:
