Question about 2007 Subaru Forester 2.5X L.L. Bean Edition

Open Question

The cross bar supporting the canvas boot cover

Constant Irritation!
I've just purchased a 2 year old Subaru Forester and excited. It could be my last car purchase. (at 71 years)
The cross bar supporting the canvas boot cover appears to be about 8 mm too short. Either L or R hangs wrinkled!
I'm new in the world of Subaru Foresters and want this right!
(2007 2.5 XS Auto)
Have the dealer installed an incorrect one or is it a model problem?
Thanks for expert help.

SOURCE: Rattling sound when accelerating on 2007 Forester

On mine, I got under there and there are rocks rattling in the heat shield. There are factory made holes in it, and the rocks sit in there like eggs in a carton and rattle when the engine hits a certain vibration frequency which is basically when it is at a stop light or idling. The repair shop wanted to charge to cut them off but I think I am going to drill bigger holes so the rocks fall out, as they are pretty tiny.

SOURCE: Installing replacement side mirror on 2007 Subaru Forester

yes... you'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you can access the bolts holding the mirror on and disconnect the wiring harness as well..

I cannot get the front tire off of my 2001 subaru forester

Not overly familiar with this car but usually not. They put a small amount of grease between the wheel and hub to avoid rust and it creates a vacuum almost like glue. Take a bar or your biggest screwdriver and pry on your wheel spoke for leverage as not to damage your disc or caliper It seems strange but it will pop off. My explored and Yukon do the same thing.

Will a 2010 subaru forester engine work/fit in a 2002 model?

The engine mounts, exhaust manifold, and wiring harnesses are different. But, if you use just the block, and maybe switch some sensors out with you old ones, it might be possible. Subaru has gone through quite a few changes with in the last couple of years, so, it would not surprise me if it did not work. I hope this info gives you some ideas to go off of!

Hello, my 2004 subaru forester cross sport is burning a rich mixture hence consuming alot of fuel (15MPG). What is the cause of the problem and how may i fix it?

i suspect the oxygen sensor might be getting old. Most subarus run a bit rich but not like that. If the maintenance is up to date items like the fuel filter, spark plugs and airfilter are not causing this then the most common item is the oxygen sensor.

How do the cross bars come off on the roof rack?

One side of each crossbar has a key that engages the removal screw. If you have lost this, then perhaps the local Subaru dealer can help. Otherwise, you will have to drill the key lock out.

My 2009 subaru forester has 35000 miles on it. The temp light was blinking on and off randomly last week but now it is on constantly. Could the thermostat need replacing? I was under the impression that...

The light flashing could be a simple "low on coolant or water". You may want to replace you reservoir cap, you will lose water over time if these go bad.
