Why is my AWD subaru only 2WD?


you will likely need to replace the following:
Duty C Solenoid
Transfer Clutch Pack
Reduction gear
All of these parts are located in the tail end of the 4EAT automatic transmissions. The reduction gear can separate from its hub and damage the above mentioned parts too.

Why is there no drive to the rear wheels of my Subaru?


I think you will find it uses similar systems to the Free Lander and rear wheel drive only kicks in when one or both of the front wheels lose traction.

Wheel Bearings. Are your sure coming from rear end and not the front? In either case: wheel bearings.

Wheels making binding noises when turning


I have this same problem with my 1996 Subaru Legacy 2.2 Wagon. There is a Subaru Service Bulletin #16-62-97 dated 5/16/97 with a Subject entitled "Transfer Clutch Binding And/Or Bucking On Turns". There is also an important follow-up to it numbered 16-64-99 dated 09/15/99 entitled "Revised Transfer Clutch Assembly Replacement Procedures" that should also be used should you decide to go ahead with the transfer clutch replacement.

I just got these Service Bulletins from my mechanic who got them from a Subaru dealer.
The estimate was about $700-$1000 to fix. This is more than likely the cause of the binding problem on slow, sharp turns.

Rear end in 1999 chevy 1500 binds on turns


well i had the same problem everyone told me the clutches in the rearend were sticking making it stick in positive traction (only your passanger side rear wheel pulls unless you start spinning then a type of clutch engages the other side so you have traction then when you stop spinning it disengages it should never be engaged if your on pavment) now you can do what i did listen to everyone when they tell you its normal or you can take it to someone with experience now and save yourself some money cause it will start popping then it will get some viberation then next it will break the clutches and when that happens you will have to replace the pinion,ring,and the spider gears as well as the clutches.make sure you have pleanty oil in rearend if you dont add the limited slip conditioner it might free clutches up but if i had it to do over id put it in the shop or stop driving it before i broke something hope this helped

96 subaru outback has rear end binding noise


I assume youy have a "binding" sensation on tight, low speed turns. If your car is an automatic, the "Four wheel drive" solenoid will most likely need replacing. This is located at the back of the trans and does not require the entire trans to be removed for its replacement. In some circumstances, simply changing the trans fluid can remedy your issue, but more often than not, the solenoid will require changing. It would be advisable to change the fluid first, as it is not expensive to do and may help significantly. Hope this helps.

98 Subaru Rear Transmission Noise/Slipping around corners


I have the same issue. It is the clutch assembly and the 'duty' solenoid at the rear of the trans that tranfers power to the rear diff. My trans light is also on which is the solenoid. The clutch parts can had after market but, the solenoid is dealer only. I'm rebuilding the entire trans at this point (187k miles).
