Question about 2008 Subaru Forester

1999 Subaru Forster Noise

When I stop my 1999 Subaru Forster makes a sound. It is almost like cold metal popping. This is frequent but not every time. I get the same sound to a lesser extent every time I apply the break while turning (ex. In a parking lot). Then, I do not know if this is related or a different problem but when I drive over 60 mph my steering wheel vibrates more than normal.
What do you think could be causing these symptoms?
Thank you for your time,
Denise

My first reaction to what you describe is the front CV joints. If worn these will click quite loudly on a slow hard turn such as in a parking lot. The steering vibration is probably wheel balance and although not related, one can make the other worse. First off ckeck your front wheels for bends or curb damage. Check the tyres for uneven wear, bulges, or blisters on the side walls and beneath the tread. Check your front brake rotors for scoring and grooving. And check around the front axles inside the front wheels for thrown grease. Check the boots on the CV joints for splits or other damage and deterioration. If you find all or any of these things, have your mechanic give you a price to replace the faulty components. We usually use rebuilt CV joint assemblies, on an exchange basis.

How do i fix Subaru 1999 b4 twin turbo


I would first check that the battery is fully charged, next I would check to make sure that the battery terminals and the posts are shiny clean and tightened good and tight, if still no power check All the fuses one at a time in both boxes, one under the hood next to the motor and the one under the dash on the drivers side. Make sure to check all fusible links. Check and follow all wires from the battery to the engine block and make sure all the connections are clean and have good contact metal on metal.

If your just dealing with the alarm/horn going off all the time, you can try disarming it when it goes off by putting the key in the ignition and turning it on and of three times ending with the last turn in the on position. This will stop the alarm from sounding.

Possible water pump bearing. Maybe anything. If you push on the clutch and it is still there, when in gear, it is nothing to do with the gearbox or transmission.

I have a 1999 legacey 2.5 GX. There is now a loud metallic sound when driving. the sound stops if you depress the clutch but returns after. Any ideas.


This sounds like a throwout bearing failure. Transmission will have to be pulled -- might as well replace clutch, disc, and throwout bearing -- how many miles on the vehicle?
