I have 2008 Outback LL Bean with auto climate control and recently, it stopped blowing any heat on the driver's side. I figured a clogged heater core was to blame, but before I dove into a flush, I decided to also check the actuators in the dash and see if they were working. I found that the driver's side actuator (72131AG27A) does not move when the hvac system is run through the positions and heat setttings. The passenger's side actuators, (three of them!) visibly move through the same hvac cycles. Figuring the driver's side actuator must be dead and stuck in the cold position, I've tried ordering the part, but have a hard time finding it. As of today, it's discontinued if I call a dealership. Some sites list it, but they cancel the order when they can't find it. Does anyone know if it's possible to repair a non responsive actuator? Is there another place to search for hard to find Subaru parts? Can I manually bypass the actuator to get heat? Any help is greatly appreciated.
The actuator for the vent system on my 1997 Brighton Legacy wagon has died and I am desperately looking for a replacement. My local Subaru dealer as well as my local mechanic have not been able to help so far. Does anyone have any suggestions? The mechanic is afraid if I keep driving on it, the door to the vent will fly off and damage something else.
Iv'e had my AT 99 outback sport for a year now and when I first got it I had to jiggle the cruise control set lever to get it to set. After a while it would just shut itself off and not come back on. Increasingly it didn't want to come on, and now wont come on at all. I've checked the vacuum hose and its fine, taken the lever out and took it apart to clean the contact points, replaced the main CC switch, and checked to make sure the plastic plunger of the break switch was still there and all the parts are fine. I'll be checking the continuity of the actuator and break switch tomorrow but i would really like some input as to if anyone has dealt with this before. I have a 1,700 mile trip this thursday and CC would make it soooo much better!
