SOURCE: engine timing for a 1998 subaru forester with a 2.5

Since ignition timing is taken care of by the ECU, I guess you are asking about cam timing.
There are several marks to be aligned and if you get them wrong, you may trash your engine so I am only going to suggest you buy a Haynes service manual that has numerous good pix that show you exactly how to avoid killing your engine. And, unless you have a good-size vice well-mounted, compressing the belt tensioner again is going to give you fits.
The Haynes number you need is 89100 but it is listed only as a manual for the Legacy which uses the same engine but there may be less info that is usable on your '98 forester for which Haynes does not make a specific manual.
The later book that I have, 89101, covers all models from 2000 to 2006.

SOURCE: change bulb on 3rd brake light on 2005 honda accord

Check for screws from the inside of the trunk,  If none then unit should slide towards front of vehicle, many melt into place due to high bulb temp in small plastic housing

SOURCE: 2003 Toyota Sienna - Need to replace left rear brake light

Hi -
I just replaced my left rear brake light on my 2005 Sienna. I followed the manual directions and removed the two metal bolts from the tail light cover. However the assembly did not come off. I could open it a little and it appeared to be bolted from the inside. I looked online but didn't find an answer. I had already gotten pulled over and I didn't want to go to the dealer so I pulled on the assembly a little harder applying even pressure to the top and the bottom and it popped loose. I didn't yank it. There are two metal pegs that have a little lip on them and thats where you are getting the resistance. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: How do you change the

I just had to do this and learned the hard way.

First take the battery out.
Second remove the plastic cap covering the low beam bulb
Thirdly there are 2 screws holding a wire tension spring against the bulb. Losen the screw towards the outside of the car (Don't touch the screw closest to the engin).

Once you do this, the bulb will come out and you can replace it.

The running lights on my 2010 forester will not shut off. all information I find is to turn off the switch on top of steering column,but I have no switch on mine and can't find one anywhere.


Subaru dropped the 'virgin switch' on top of the steering column, not sure when.

If the rotating light switch at the end of the turn signal stalk on the column is fully rotated to OFF - and the running lights are still on, you may need a dealer or mechanic to look for a bad relay or possibly a short somewhere. Sometimes wires go bad in the boot to the hatch - leading to odd electrical problems. Certain type of dual element bulbs can cause issues too. Double check that none of the light assemblies have collected water.

I have a 2010 subaru forester that i cannot refuel when check engine light is on


Although I have never encountered this issue on my own 2010 Forester, I would say that this may be a fuel system problem with a sensor or component. The place to resolve this is at a Subaru service department.

Brake pedal will not depress.


indicates that it is the booster or second ,a faulty brake master cylinder
boosters can be repaired for considerably less than that or get a good unit from the wreckers /junk yards
get a second opinion from an accredited brake specialist shop

Describe how to change fog lamp (just the bulb) on 2005 subaru forester. As far as I know the fog light assembly is fine, the bulb has just burned out. If you know which bulb to use please let me know,...


2005 Forester - It is easiest to remove the fog assembly.

1. From underneath the vehicle pry out one plastic fastener to be able to bend the light weight plastic mud protector downward. You will see the underside of the fog light assembly with one 10mm bolt directly above you. Remove this bolt.
2. From the front of the vehicle unscrew one 10mm bolt at top of fog light (this is the shorter of the 2 by the way) and pry out one plastic rivet adjacent to it.

3. Carefully remove the fog assembly and disconnect 2-pin power connector by pulling up on the release. Carefully wiggle the housing out (no force req'd).
4. Unscrew the back from the housing and replace H3 bulbs. Take care not to touch the bulb while replacing.

5. Reverse to install.

Should take an hour at most.

2005 Subaru Outback XT - Real Tail light- bulb replacement


1. Open the rear hatch, and look down towards the bumper, in the direction of the tail light bulb needing replacement.
2. You should see the dark colored plastic trim piece, which is held in place by two small plastic body style philips head screws.
3. These wil only 'loosen' a little bit, you will need to slip a fingernail or some other slim item, underneath the heads of each of the screws, and pull back on them firmly by grasping the body of the screw, not the head (which is flimsy, and can crush if squeezed).
3. remove the plastic trim piece - it can be achieved by lifting out and towards you - set aside.
4. Using a 10mm socket or wrench, unscrew the upper and lower bolts holding the taillight assembly in place.
5. the taillight assembly is now loose - it can pulled rearwards, and will slide off of the small guide slots holding it in place.
6. The bulb is a twist lock style, underneath the tan cap- twist the cap counter-clockwise, and it will pop out. The bulb is a number 7440, for the running light/ brake light, and a 7443 for the turn signal. a 3757 will not fit through the cut out hole in the taillight assembly.
7. Re-assemble in reverse, making sure to check the function of the bulb PRIOR to re-assembly.
Good Luck.
