Where did Subaru hide the voltage regulator?

Is it in the alternator? Or is it near the battery like my Haynes manual says? Haynes doesn't have the best pictures, so what does it look like?

Arch.. does a soob alt have the little holes to put paperclips in to hold the brushes in place while it goes back together like a GM alt?

Yep it dose, mine was on the blink and I tore it down, I thought it was a bad regulator.. turned out I had a couple of diodes that head de-soldered from the plate (dont ask me how ). A bit of a trick to re-solder but you gotta love a no dollar fix.
The trouble I’ve found is that nobody sell alternator parts anymore, just complete units, anybody have a source on parts?

We have Checker, Napa, and Autozone here. I got a new regulator for $17.99. I did a bunch of alternator/starter teardowns a few years ago in auto shop. I still remember the jist of it anyways. And i've got a Haynes manual. Should be set. I'll just have to wait and see how it goes.
