  1. This is puzzling me. My wife's 2009 Forester had warm air blowing out when the AC is "on". No big deal, i grab a can of recharge and go to it. When recharged though the air on the passenger side of the car is noticeably colder - the clutch is on and it would seem it is working. The odd part is that from the left vent (under the radio) to the driver side it is the complete opposite. Now, I would have figured that the mixer/diverter door might be stuck but to half of the vents? Are there 2 condensers on this thing? What strikes me as really odd is that the vents under the radio usually are supplied by 1 duct that splits to the two? -Justin
  2. I have installed Viper alarm/remote starters on various cars with immobilizers in them. To get around them you have to buy a bypass kit like XpressKit. To be honest with my wifes' car i don't want to go through all that hassle of installing an after market when the keyfob/alarm seems to be working pretty good. (I just want to add a remote start feature and this one at least promises integration as opposed to bypassing and splicing) Have you had any troubles with the OEM one? Do you recall how much it was for the Dealership to program it? I only have 1 key at this time and wouldnt be turned off to making 1 trip out of it - programming the kit and getting another key. -Justin
  3. Has anyone ever installed the "OEM" Remote starters? Is there any benefit to installing the OE option as opposed to installing an after market deal. The car is a '09 Fozzy 2.5 Auto. The one I have been looking at is this: https://subaruonlineparts.com/subaru-forester-remote-engine-start-2009-2010-p-2337.html Install guide seems simple enough - https://subaruonlineparts.com/pdf/H001SSC100.pdf -Jusitn
  4. Daylight savings - who's bright Idea was that!? LOL My Jackstands have a deep notch on them so you /could/ put them at the pinch points and lift from the Dif., if yours did too -Justin
  5. Theres a little notch impression stamped in the metal - thats the indicator of where to lift from. That said - that lip IS where you lift from. I had picked up one of these - that allows you to use a hydraulic jack -Justin
  6. I just did my wife's Headlights with the Maguires Pictured below, the top two show them just polished (1k then 3k sand then polish) the bottom shows with the "sealant" Its not terribly difficult to do, really. Just wet sand <---> with each sand pad/disk evenly. then wash and dry. then apply the polish. The drill bit is for the polishing part - same method. slow and steady then wipe, clean and dry. The sealant (make sure you have gloves on!) just wipes on evenly by wiping across the lens. Took maybe 10 min each light? edit: they give you more than plenty that you can keep the kit for other vehicles. I plan on doing her tail lights as well as the taillights on my car, too. edit: Had to finish it off with a full wash "Abby" Cleans up so nicely! -Justin

    JESZEK! long time no see! Glad to see you are doing well. Its always good to think about you and your family and disconnect for a while. -Justin
  10. For lens cleaning I've used Meguiar's Headlight restore. (amazon - https://amzn.to/2Eq46vz) i actually *just* ordered that one to do my wifes' forester. costs' about 30 bucks at Checkers/orilley's but TOTALLY worth it. I've even gone as far as using it on taillight lens' and they look brand stinking new. (pics below) As far as light upgrades, you'll get flak one way or the other about doing LED/HID swaps. I do run HID's myself but they are *technically* intended for Projection lenses. Keep in mind you'll find 30w or 50w swap ins. 30's are BRIGHT enough if you swap them for hallogen - you dont need to spring for the 50+watts pics of the lens' cleaned up. .. -Justin
  11. Hacking wasnt the issue. Keeping such a large knowledgebase takes funding and the Primary Source was in an accident a bit ago. We have since found another host (another member) that runs his own host so hopefully, as far as hosting is concerned, it isnt going to be a problem. -Justin

    I dont usually do this but.... Seriously - Looking good! -Justin
  13. A thought occurred to me. Have you replaced the starter, or the alternator recently? How are your connections? I had a similar problem on my truck a few years back and the power wire to the starter was grounding out which would do the same as you described -justin
