Sounds like the belt let go and maybe got jammed on the way out. The belt power the alternator, power steering pump and water pump etc. Check for a seized pulley as well. Sometimes the little bearings go.

Can a 2001 Subaru Outback take an aftermarket stock clutch or do you have to go with a Subaru clutch only? fighting clutch chatter two clutches in two months after orignal clutch lasted 130k miles?


Get a new clutch kit AND flywheel. Don't turn a flywheel more than once, just like with brake rotors. Any car can use an aftermarket clutch replacement (as long as they fit, of course). If you get a lightened flywheel, you'll enjoy better acceleration and mileage (city driving) as well.

Hey Mike - I'm the 2001 Outback wagon owner... you said you think a belt went - would that cause such an array of problems? burning brakes smell, battery light on, steering limited, screeching brakes...


If one of the pulley or alternator seized up (would cause belt screeching and smell) finally let go(pop sound) then none of the accessory drives working (no belt).

Hi. On a 2002 Subaru outback. Can someone tell me what would cause the indicator lights for both the brakes and battery to come on and the power steering seems to be out. there was a slight burning smell...


I'll give it a shot. This is my theory on what has happened..
It sounds as though one of the belts, (actually I think it's just one large one) has broken. The belt would have been attached to the alternator and the power steering, those could go out at the same time. The smell would be the burning rubber of the belt. It is possible that the broken piece of belt flapping around could have damaged a component in the brake system. He will have more problems if he keeps driving. I would have the car towed to a garage. I would also advise that he get a recommendation from one of the locals in a restaurant as to who an honest mechanic in the area so that he is not taken unfair advantage of.
I hope I've helped.
Best Regards,
Mark
