SOURCE: I need to replace rotors on a 2005 subaru outback.

I recommend getting replacement parts at your local dealer. To remove the rotors you will need. A lift or jack (with jack stands)to get the tire off the ground. A 19mm Socket/tire iron to get the lug nuts off. A 14mm wrench to remove the caliper. And a 17mm wrench to remove the caliper cradle. A hammer may be needed to remove the rotor. The rotor itself, if factory has 2 spots where a 10mm bolt could be screwed in to press the rotor off. A hammer is easier and usually more readily available. If you are replacing pads as well, you will need a large pair of channel lock pliers to compress the pistons in the caliper.

SOURCE: 2000 Subaru Outback manual transmission rebuild

I would want to see that for myself, or get a second opinion. That really sounds suspicious since they claimed there was rust in a box that was mostly filled with oil. And I can't see any logic in paying a lot of money to fix a transmission that is working. Why don't you take it to another shop and ask them to change the transmission oil, and to save the old oil for you to look at. It would be even better to change the oil yourself. Don't tell the dealer what you are doing. The best thing would be to just pick up your car, as is. If it is a scam, they could put some stuff in the transmission if you give them time to do it. In fact, they may have already done that. I can't say it's a scam, but it sounds like it could be if you haven't done anything that would have broken off teeth in the transmission. And if teeth are broken off you should be able to hear it while accelerating at low speed in each gear.

SOURCE: Fuel Filter for a 2005 Subaru Outback

In 2005 Subaru moved the fuel filters to the fuel tank for both 4-cyl and 6-cyl cars. What is confusing is the statement in the owner's manual about replacement intervals; the statement actually only applies to 4-cyl cars. Even though the filter is mounted in the tank, this is still a replaceable element on 4-cyl, but not on 6-cyl. The 6-cyl filter element is part of the entire fuel pump assembly (a $300 assembly) and is not sold separately. Therefore the 6-cyl filter is intended to be a "lifetime" part, which really means it gets replaced when the fuel pump fails and the entire pump assembly is replaced.

SOURCE: how do u put timing belt for 2001 subaru outback

This is not your average timing belt replacement due to being a double overhead cam that is also an interferance fit.First remove cooling fans.2-Loosen drive belts and remove.3-Remove crank pully.4-Remove timing covers.You will see 4 cam sprockets.Theses sprockets contain single and double referance marks.You will be using the double referance marks.Rotate engine until the double referance marks are facing each other.This is to be done the same way that the American autos timing Chain systems are done but you will have 2 small double lines to line up not dots.The next step is the most important step and is of utmost imortance.THE CAMSHAFT HAVE TO BE LOCKED IN PLACE--FAILURE TO DO SO CAN RESULT IN BENT VALVES.The cam sprocket holders can be bought or rented.You can make your own as well by making 2 wedges with bolt through the middle.Slip in between sprockets and tighten enough to hold sprockets.Do not use excessive torque while tightening wedges sprockets are not made of steel but rather a composite material.Next you will have to remove the tenioner.The tensioner has to be retracted and pin istalled to hold in retracted position.The tension device has to be retracted with care or will be damaged.You can not exceed 50 pounds pressure on the plunger.The simplest method is to reract while still in vehicle, it takes 15 minutes to properly retract the plunger.By pulling up on the tensioner by hand with about 18 pounds of force --50 will be exerted at the plunger.When fully retracted insert pin to hold in reracted position.Next check to make sure that cam wedges are holding and no sprocket are trying to move,when satisfied remove one of the rollers at the bottom on the side where you left hand would be standing in front.Pull off belt.Replacement belt will have referance marksone line will go to crank sprocket face up others will line up with other sprocket marks.Reinstall roller followed by tensioner then pull pin you have holding tenioner retracted.Remove wedges.Reinstall covers fans belts.Do not be intimitaded by this replacement.Everything is very easy to get to.Be sure cams are locked and that damage is not done to tensioner and it is straight forward.

I need to change the crank position sensor on 2005 Subaru Outback. Is this a do it yourself job? The local Subaru dealer wants $260 for the part and 1 hour labour. Where is it located and where can I find...


the sensor is located by the crankshaft pully and should have a 2 wire plug on it. as far 260 for the part, thats insane considering it's a 25 dollar part. you should be able to do it yourself

My rear seatbelt in my subaru outback is locked and wont pull out to buckle up. Can it be fixed


I assume you've already worked the seat belt end back and forth with force. Did the belt move at all? Did you remove the rear seat bottom cusion from the car? That will give you additional leverage on the belt.
If the belt twisted the last time it was used and then rolled up, you need to go to the dealer or an upholstery shop for help.

2008 subaru outback


Best to pop in to your local Subaru dealer and ask them what is required for wiring in a trailer plug, a lot of new vehicle require special equipment to prevent damage to the electronics that control the lighting on the vehicles, especially those that have LED style lights on them. Get a quote from them on cost of them doing the job, and for the parts only if you want to get someone else with a cheaper labour rate to do it.

Hope this helps,
Mark.
