  1. Thanks for the comment. I have had some issues with that window being a little wonky, like the window would go all the way up then down then back up for a little while. I learned how to reset it here. Hmm. I wonder if there may may be a way to do another reset or something...

  3. I drive a 2017 OBW. I recently had to have the battery replaced. Just the other day I noticed that the driver's side door control for the passenger window isn't working. I know electrical stuff is a serious pain to track and fix but thought there may be a simple trick or solution somebody here could offer. Any body?? Thanks!
  4. Hello, The 3rd brake light on the gate of my 2017 OBW was damaged when a kayak flew off the top of my car. Fortunately, the kayak didn't cause any other damage to my car or others on the freeway. I have the replacement LED light assembly but I can't find any videos or instructions on how to replace it. There is a spoiler so the light sits in and 'underneath' the spoiler. Would anybody here have suggestions or a link to a video on how to do this. I was able to pull of part of the molding on the inside of the gate but the light doesn't seem to be accessible from there. Thank you!
  5. WOW! This suggestion is was did it! Thank you very much, greatly appreciated. I simply rolled the window all the way up, held the button in for a couple of extra seconds then rolled it all the way down and held it for a couple of seconds. It now works from both driver and passenger doors! like magic.
  6. Hello, I drive a 2017 subaru OBW. recently the control for the passenger side window on the driver's door has stopped working. I hope this is something as simple as a fuse. Do people here have any other ideas or suggestions? Thank you, Craig
  7. I am looking to replace the black trim on my 2017 OBW passenger-side view mirror. Would anybody here have suggestions on where I could find or look for that piece? Thank you.
  8. Does anybody know of the crossbars on the 2017 OBW are the same size and dimensions as the 2011? I recently acquired a 2017 and am trying to find the simplest way to use the racks from my former 2015. I’ve learned Yakima stopped making mighty mounts for OBW IN 2017.
  9. Hello, I drive a 2005 subaru outback. It's got 198000 miles on it. I recently had rear breaks and front tie rods and something with lateral links and maybe struts done on the car. A short while after thisthe car started to vibrate when at about 33-60 mph. It seems to vibrate most right around 40 mph. It's not that bad for a car that is that old. I am looking to sell the car soon; I wonder if there is any major concern about this? There is no vibration when my foot is not on the gas pedal. After about 60 mph the vibration is minimal and almost stops over 65 mph. I took it back to the shop I had the recent work done at and they told me it was related to sway bars and rear driveshaft assembly. The work would have to be done if I wanted to avoid the vibration/shaking/rattling but didn't say muc more beyond that. Does anybody have experience with this? Is it a major concern for a car that may end up with a young driver with mostly about town driving to be done. ? Thank you.
  10. I drive a 2005 outback its got 197000 miles on it. Within the past 12 months, there have been three times when the engine just straight up stopped and the car shut down. I had bumped the gear into neutral Once while driving down the highway at about 65 or so miles an hour I had bumped the gear into neutral and it stopped. I was able to use the breaks and pull to the side, stopped and started the car again. I drove the rest of my way with no problem. That was last Jan or Feb. Then in November, the engine stopped when I turned off a highway. there seemed to be a bump in the road but nothing that happened in the car. A third time this happened in December. There was a rattling sound so I jiggled my leys with the back of my hand and the engine stopped and car shutoff. I was again able to pull over, stop and start the car with no issue. Has anything like this happened to anybody else? Is this a concern or just some flukes from bumping into neutral and rattling the keys? I'm not too worried I'll just be sure not to bump anything again I guess. Thanks.
  11. I'm in Minnesota so I guess that would be a rust prone state. THANK YOU! for the comments and insights. I think 2015 or newer should be in reach. I'd like that over 2013. I understand most cars have a 10yr. avg life expectancy yet not that case with Subarus although I'd still like to have something that is 4-5 years older vs older than that. AT any rate, the feedback and suggestions are great thanks again!
