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..

Where is location of engine block heater on subaru forester?


The location is a on the bottom of the engine block, just above where the oil dipstick enter the oil pan. If it does not have a block heater already installed, there will be a plug that takes a 14mm allen wrench/socket. Coolant must be drained to avoid being covered in it when the plug is removed.

No heat but blower works in 2005 forester


  1. Hi Heather, Generally if there is no heat, there is no coolant in the radiator. Check if you can see coolant in the overflow tank. If none, add some. Then it's important to find out where the coolant has gone. Check hoses and connections for leaks at the radiator and elsewhere. Coolant hoses also run to the heater core and across the top of the engine to the thermostat and thermo-sensor.

How to replace heater core on subaru impreza 98 step by step


If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core.
When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.
Heater Housing
  • The heater housing is usually under the dash and must be removed to gain access to the heater core.
  • Procedures for replacing the heater core vary with the year, make, and model of car. It threfore necessary to consult the manufacturer's repair manuals for the proper procedure for replacement.
f74-01.gif The heater housing is disassembled to get to the heater core. Heater Core
  • Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess to the heater core.
  • Remove the heater coolant hoses.
  • Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped).
  • Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps.
  • Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing.
  • To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps.
When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation.

Heater not putting out heat


Sounds like you may have a head gasket going. Is it running low on coolant? Or did it? Make sure it is topped off and the heater core is full. Let it run and see if it over heats and you have lost fluid. If so I would have a pressure test done on the motor to see if the cylinders bleed down. I hope it is something like the heater core not being full. I wish you luck.
