Hi Guys,
Wondering if you could save me a trip to the dealer. I have a 2019 Forester and I noticed a very pronounced sound coming from the drivers side rear quarter panel (around the rear drivers side tire)....sounds like a metal bar or something rolling around when going over bumps. Yes, I removed everything out of the back, including the spare tire which was secured- so thats not it. Checked the muffler and hanger, not it. Checked the drivers side rear door, not it. The only thing I did was back it up on a dirt hill inline last night and ever since then it has been making this sound. I checked the plastic fender walls, and they are all tight, no plastic or anything looks damaged. Any ideas?
Thanks
Jonathan

Do most Subaru techs use torque wrenches when fixing our cars? I always ask but they probably mostly use impacts for times sake. I need to buy a good torque wrench to check afterward. Thanks for posting your update. Helps everyone here.

I have a 2019 and may have same issue. When did you take delivery of the vehicle? I got mine on Good Friday.
