Question Forester XT Head Unit/Sat Nav Console

Hi, our head unit in our 2015 Forester XT died a few months ago and its out of warranty, typical!!! Been trying to locate a replacement but they seem fairly hard to find. The unit is a 86271SG370, we've managed to determine the fault is with the bottom motherboard. All the unit does is show a black screen and flash the buttons. Anyone know where to get a replacement, how to fix it or know of an alternative unit we could install. Tried Subaru but only option they gave was a refurb unit from Fujitsu for £450 which is our last option if all else fails.

From the part number you supplied it's an "all in one radio/navi unit", similar to that shown below, and which seems specific (part number wise) for the Forester, so not surprising a replacement is hard to find.

Without obtaining a replacement from a "like for like" vehicle your nearest equivalents would be from a MY15 on Impreza or XV or a MY16 on WRX STI.

Another way would be to obtain a replacement facia from a slighty earlier model that would accept a standard double din head unit.

For example only

Was a MY03 FXT 5MT (280bhp/290Lbsft)
Now a MY11 WRX STi 4door (342bhp/360Lbsft)
