  1. I've got a right side full assembly, meaning mounting bracket and glass light fixture itself. Bulb may still be plugged into it, too. As I recall, the glass flat surface is not cracked or broken, and IIRC it just needs a little cleaning and maybe some polishing. I've a couple of those grates that attach to the outside, too.
  2. If the rear components were faulty, he'd still have drive, because the fronts provide MOST of the power to the road. At first I'm thinking CVJ failure, but reading more causes me to think throwout bearing..although those make a huge racket LONG before catastrophic failure, something Paul would surely recognize. Just my 2 bucks

    Humming from rear end

    I agree with the U joint diagnosis. Had a speed related hum on my '83 some years back, and my Subaru guru at Norm's Auto Repair in South Tahoe replaced them. No more hum. That was about 100,000 miles ago, at 292,000 miles.
  4. Great story and pix. Thanks for posting!

    Halogen vrs LED vrs HID

    Very informative, thanks for posting.
  6. Charlie's Automotive in Murray. Saab and Subaru specialists. Owner-operated.
  7. Likely low on refrigerant. Select the type of refrigerant that has lubricant included. Be careful not to overcharge. My 2 bucks
  8. I'd like to do a "drain and refill" on this car. The Owner's Manual says (besides Gen Subaru) "Castrol Transmax J". I can't seem to find it in the stores, and I've seen all kinds of differing substitutions. Any opinions or recommendations?
