I am working on Repairing a Crashed 2011 Forester. Looking arround for Dash and Drivers wheel .No Forester ones avaiable localy . but looking at ebay they tell me the impreza ones are compatable and dash panel is same. Impreza ones are avaiable locally. so how do check replacement and original are correct.
I sure theres some way of comparing SN .
Anyone Know ??

subaru has a site called "opposed forces" that shows all the part numbers and interchanges, though i haven't used it for body repair/SRS stuff before. check there first.

if you see a few places cross referencing them then it's probably right - they generally do a good job of finding out which parts are interchangeable - it helps them with sales (well not in this case - it pointed you to other options LOL) i often look to ebay and other sites to confirm interchangeability. if you remove your existing blown bags can you get a part number off of them and type that into an online subaru parts site? often times parts have the numbers stamped on them. i've done a few rebuilds but have never looked for part numbers, Subaru's are generally like logos so i wouldn't be surprised at all for the imp/for to interchange, they usually do. but wanna be sure of course.
