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.

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.

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.
