Re: Heated seats - Is there a fuse and where?

IMHO Subaru seat heater elements suck, the wire that connects to the pad is probably busted off. You probably need something like: https://www.amazon.com/Tech-Era-Carbon-Heater-Setting/dp/B008D2LIRG/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1528155980&sr=1-2&keywords=seat+heater+kit and ...

Re: Oil smell

Plus one on checking the CV Boot. Also, if you catch a split boot early enough you can just add grease and a new boot. The OEM CV's are high quality. I have replaced a few CV's on Subarus where the rebuilt units were [emoji107] from the git go. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk How hard are they...

Re: Interchangeable seats

Ya, they match. And the lady who owned it before me I really doubt would change something like seats and there were no receipts for having them replaced. She did have them rebolstered and re stitched about a year before selling it to me. I am fairly sure it is a sport because those were the ones wi...

Re: Interchangeable seats

Hi! New to this forum. Just got a 2005 Baja. It has some small splits in the drivers seat - I see others have this problem. I found out from a local shop that a quality repair is very costly. Does anyone have a list of compatible Subaru seats from other models? May be cheaper to replace the seat. I...

Re: Keeping headlight clean

Glass headlights haven't been used since the 80s because of the manufacturing price and safety issues (shattered glass in accidents). Unfortunately there's no permanent fix. However clear vinyl appliques or clear-coat sprays immediately after cleaning, I've heard, makes them last much longer Thanks...
