Hi All,

I am replacing the front strut top mount of my FXT 14+, and I wonder if there is the marking for correction mounting direction, I see there are 02 dots on the rubber area but not sure it will mean anything.
Please share your advice,



Thanks,
TommyGT

I wanted to make folks aware of a Subaru TSB regarding strut mounts on '14-'16 Foresters. Have a look at TSB 10140502 "This bulletin announces a design change to the front strut mounts intended to address customer concerns of a popping-type sound which may be heard when making low speed turns." I started to have this issue on my '15 at about 40K. I have 44K now. I've been to the dealer 3 different times for other issues but I always mentioned this problem. They either just ignore that I said it or say that its being caused by my aftermarket skid plate. Now I have a TSB that matches perfectly what I've been going through.
