The suspension on those is really a brilliant thing, isn't it? Unfortunately, bladders that control the ride height don't last forever and they're pretty expensive to replace. The few that have been in my shop for leaking bladders have been retrofitted with conventional struts all around. Not what you wanted to hear, I'm sure, but it's a LOT more expensive to replace the adjustable suspension, and you can bet that if one of them has ruptured, the others aren't far behind.
The only thing that I can think of that might be a good temporary fix (6 months?) is to get a used air adjust strut from a salvage yard. If you can find one. Superupair in Boulder, Colorado usually has the most used Suby parts, and I believe they ship nationally.
Good luck!

2001 Subaru outback driver side windshield wiper goes to far to the outside tears up the end of the blade - ideas please


I have the same problem with a 2001 Legacy wagon. The problem is not as simple as the solutions above. Mine are adjusted to park as low as possible when off. Even so, the blade on the drivers side goes all the way off the windshield. The Subaru dealer wants to replace the whole wiper blade transmission for about $450. Looking online it seems to be interconnecting arms and pivot points that connect the motor to the wiper blade arms.

1992 Subaru legacy ls wagon w/air suspension. Air pump appears to be working but very low, bumpy ride. Does not appear the shocks are working properly.


your shocks are leaking or a leak in the lines or pump it has a rolling diaphram when you hit a speed they lower and raise on speed

if you cant find the leak you can pump the strut with a compressor if it has a leak replace it if they are expensive and you wish a cheeper fix you can cap off the front lines or rear or replace all of them with regular coils and struts if off a used car the struts may be bad the spring is heavy and the strut needs to be removed and checked if its bad get new ones they are not cheep but the air ride struts new are a grand or better well they use to be a used one was a few hundred i replaced them with springs on a gl-10 years ago and the light may blink remove the bulb or a wire under the drivers side seat not sure on that year

1992 Subaru Liberty wagon - cannot lock front passenger door.


Check the alignment with the door pin. Might be out of adjustment and will not let the door close all the way. That will cause the lock to not be operable. Good luck and have a great day.

Knock right rear suspension after driving some miles and car warm. NOT antiroll bar bushes - these have been replaced, as have damper mounts.


its known in Australia that sometimes its the valving in the shocker causing it to knock,get shock absorbers checked,it should be under new car warranty still unless youve exceeded the mileage,but they are known to have the odd faulty shock absorber
