I do feel you are being told the truth here sounds like they need to replace the speedo head as its like a mini computer inside its all electronic ,but first i would check the earth wire as this would stop it all from working and the garage if its a dealer would replace unit anyway as more profit involved in unit changing than repairing the earth cable which they would have to do anyway when fitting the new one but a new unit at dealer prices ?? need i say anymore

Radio volume control on 2008 Subaru Tribeca does not work, but remote volume control on steering wheel works. Any suggestions on repairs?


Replace the volume control(rheostat) inside the radio. Only way to fix it. I would personally just live with it until one or the other quits working. Then replace the radio.

I need to replace the drivers side low beam on my 2008 subaru tribeca


The High and low beams are all in the same bulb. You have to reach in behind the light in the engine compartment and undo the retaining collar and pull it out and then pull the bulb assembly out if it separates from the collar. Unplug the bulb and replace it. I usually stop at Walmart and use the little box they have there to find the proper bulb for the vehicle, in most cases they are the less costly of the places you can get the bulbs.

Trying to change low beam light in subarau tribeca 2008- need to see schematic


Hello SUBY bro, kick me if I'm wrong but imho this should not be that complicated to require a schematic......Below is the reply I posted here on FixYa for another 08 Tribeca owner......Peace

We have an 05 Legacy and I've done this. Tribeca should be the same way: Look through the engine bay2.gif behind the light, you can locate the position by following the wires which actually connect to the bulb assembly. The bulb assembly ought to be removable with a 1/4-1/2 turn and pull motion. Be sure to not touch the replacement bulb with your bare hands. Your Subaru service ought to help you with this and not charge you......

My 2008 Tribeca also uses excessive oil


That is surprising and I'm sorry to read of your troubles. We have an 05 Legacy 2.5i with 68k+ miles and plugging along good so far......

I don't know what state you're in but there should be a lemon law applicable to the problem you're having. You're obviously under 3yr/36k manufacturer warranty. If I were you I'd formally request repair of the problem and not accept test/diagnosis without action. Sounds like you're getting a run around......

Subaru tribeca lights


DO NOT buy bulbs anywhere other than SUBARU as replacement. They are specifically long life bulbs. Yes, availlable in other brands in other stores and more cost efficient but not in the long run..
