Hi all
I have just purchased another Forester, previously had a 1997 TB, this was a disaster (Torque Bind/Head Gasket etc) so now have a 2000 Turbo S, nice straight UK car with history...I will be giving it a service this weekend, but am looking for a load cover in gray ( Roller blind thingy )..
I have tried on ebay but nothing, I have tried a few breakers and again no one has one...Any ideas!, also was wondering if a impreza wagon one will fit as plenty of thouse about.
regards Duncan

welcome. unfortunately the load covers are as rare as rocking horse poo, so its either bide your time and wait for them to come up on ebay or bite the bullet and pay the stealership price thats if your dealer can get them as they no longer appear on the subaru website!!

Hello & welcome.

Ivan @ Foresters Subaru is breaking 2 Foresters @ the moment.

He has a Silver 03, I think it still has a load cover.

I'm in there tomorrow, I will prompt him.

I bought a new one for mine from US for $120 and got a collegue to bring it back when he went on a business trip. UK §tealership was asking 200+ pounds!!!

Don,

He's after the rear load cover??

Right?


That's what I was pointing toward.

Have I missed something??

Kind regards

Hi Don,

He's got a 2000 that he is scrapping, also.

Any way we have pointed the new poster in the right direction.:biggrin:

Load Cover

Hi
Thanks for the replies, I have tried the avenues selected but still no luck..
So I am still looking if anything comes to light...
Ps- My Forester is great, last weekend it came into its own, I am a member
of a metal detecting club, and we had to cross a couple of fields and up a very steep muddy slope to get to a parking area...My Forester was by far the
the best...Normal cars were being pushed and even a Grand Vitara got stuck.

"even" a Grand Vitara. genius :) If your Foz didn't out-do the Suzooker I'd have set mine on fire! Maybe.

Welcome to the forum!

Hello
Thanks for this, I did manage to get one for £45 locally, it was a bit dirty but cleaned up ok...For some reason I could not post a reply last week!...
I was thinking of upgrading my membership, does this give any benefits.

As a welcoming gift you can choose from a radio alarm clock, a parker pen or a blow up rubber sex doll in the shape of NorthDownsScooby.
