Question about Subaru Tribeca

1 Answer

Moisture keeps collecting inside my 2008 Subaru Tribeca front headlight. Dealership resealed twice without sucess. They finally replaced the headlight with a new one, and the problem still persists. It's a "sealed" unit-----how does that happen and what recourse do I have?? I was told it is not a warranty issue.

Try taking off the headlights and remove the bulbs. When you remove the bulbs, there is a gasket. If there is moisture, you will notice that the outside and inside of the gasket is wet. Use a hair dryer and silicone sealant to seal the gasket and the moisture problem shall go away.

You wouldn't expect these things to happen in a brand new car! But sometimes its good for the manufacturer as they can modify parts and launch field fix programs or recalls. For you particular case I think you should ask the dealer the results of the scannings and post it here so that we can use the information you provide us to better our services and knowledge.
Thank you.

Hello, I know exactly what your talking about! and why no one else did... The error code is being displayed on your trip/odo LCD screen at the bottom of your right gauge pod if I remember correctly. Only, it\'s not Er 66... it\'s (Er bb) which is a malfunction with your vacuum pump system. I truly hope this is the same concern you are asking about, if so I am happy I could help. If it is a different problem please let me know so I can look into this matter further. I\'ve added an "error chart guide" so you will have proof this time when/if you decide to return to the dealer... Good luck!! and I hope this info helps...(subytech1)...143162913

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..

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.

How do I replace the passenger side headlight (lowbeam) on a 2008 Subaru Tribeca?


if the battery sits in front you will have to remove it.most imports now a days are like this.once the battery is removed you should have ample space to remove the bulb. just make sure that you use a clean rag to install the new one as you must not touch the glss part of the bulb with your fingers or oilly rags.befopre disconnecting the battery make sure you dont need a code to restart the car or use the radio.

How do I replace a left hand side low beam light on a Subaru Tribeca 2008


Inspect/Replace There can be slight variations in procedure from one model to another when replacing headlights. For instance, on some models the turn signal light assembly must be removed before the headlight can be replaced. Overall, however, the procedure does not differ much from the following typical instructions.
Make sure the replacement bulb is the same type and part number as the one that is being replaced.
f19-22.jpg Comparing the old and ther replacement headlamps. To Replace:
  • Remove the headlight bezel retaining screws. Remove the bezel. If necessary, disconnect the turn signal lamp wires.
  • Remove the retaining ring screws from one or both lights.
  • Remove the retaining rings.
  • Remove the light from the housing. Disconnect the wiring connector from the back of the light.
  • Push the wiring connector onto the prongs at the rear of the new light.
  • Place the new light in the headlight housing. Position it so the embossed number in the light lens is on the top.
  • Place the retaining ring over the light and install the retaining ring screws. Tighten them slightly.
  • Check the aim of the headlight and adjust it, if necessary.
  • Install the headlight bezel. Secure it with the retaining screws.
  • Connect the turn signal lamp wiring (if it was disconnected).

Headlights fogged


I have a Montana and the headlight on these vans are always fogging up inside and collect water from condensation. Most of us Montana owner's drill two 3/8 hole on the side of the headlight to allow air to circulate. That fixed the problem and no more fog or water. When you drill the hole find a spot like close to the bottom corner and look to see if the spot is clean, which would indicate that dirt and water from the rain don't collect there.
Good luck and hope this helps.
