The OFFICAL Subaru Legacy thread

Postby racedriverpro » January 2nd, 2017, 11:41 am

I thought it was about time that Legacy owners have a reserved space to collaborate on anything Legacy related.

I have learned alot from fellow Subaru owners (most on the forum), alot from research and hands on experience. I wouldnt say that I know most of what there is to know. One thing is for certain is that I am always trying to learn more.

I am always willing to share what I know. It's only fitting that I give freely as I have received.

I own an 04 BL5 GT.

I know what it's like to need information immediately so I can be reached at 7703253 (whatsapp available) or via PM

Feel free to ask any question or offer help and advice.

Good day i have a reverse gear issue. When the car is now started the reverse gear won't engage till the car is fully warmed up. If i put it in reverse and mash gas before its fully up to operating temp the reverse gear goes in with a hard bang. Can anyone tell me what could be the cause. If anyone else has experienced this and what u did to solve it

Seals in the transmission are worn. When it heats up it swells and builds pressure like it should. Revving builds high pressure to overcome leaks but its still too much so it slams into gear. You can either rebuild it with new seals or replace the transmission.

Anyone using Honda coolant as a substitute in their legacy or any other Subaru?

That sounds like the solution. Who rebuilds transmissions for Subaru?

A few guys around but none specifically for Subaru.... Charles Transmissions, Jai, Jenton etc. Where u from? A rebuild can cost 10k+. I would suggest a foreign used especially if ur car is JDM. Am sure guys can give a review on a used transmission.

Hey guys
Does anyone know of any reset proceedures for the auto feature on the legacy power window switch. I had replaced my switch panel (original had broken) with a foreign used one but the auto feature isn’t working. I tried the reset procedures that i saw on YouTube and on legacy gt forums which basically involves lowering the window then bringing it back up again and holding the switch for 10sec but it isn’t working. My car is an 05 LGT JDM.
Not sure if the proceedure is different for jdm or not

Thanks

When I changed mine it worked instantly I didn't know there was a procedure for this.

Just to update on this, I got it to work following the proceedure that I described above. I think the mistake I was making was holding the switch in the up position for too long. I held it for 5s and it worked.

Thanks
