1. Is this a good candidate for finding a used one at a salvage yard?
2. Any suggestions for a source for a good price on a new one?
3. Any comments on this problem, in general?
Thanks for any advice!

there was a post on the endwrench site about this happening to impreza's that had recently had a trailer hitch added. Something about the hose above the vent canister being disconnected and very hard to see it had been dislodged. Does anything like that apply to your situation?
I don't think so. Like I said, the mechanic at the dealership (who I trust -it's just the management that I cannot abide) tested the solenoid and found it bad. I also did ask him specifically if it could be a wiring issue and he said that it was not. Thanks for the comment anyway!

The number is 1-888-782-9493, only issue is if you are having a dealer do the work, they may not like you showing up with your own parts. hope this helps.

I checked the price of the vent control solenoid at 1st Subaru Parts.com and then at Liberty Subaru. Same price both places! I ordered it from Liberty. I enjoyed the coincidence that Liberty is located in my home town. Haven't lived there in almost 30 years! Had a nice chat with the parts guy.
Thanks again. I hope I did not offend anyone with my comment above. Just reporting my experience. I won't give up. I know there's some folks who know their Subarus around here.
