There is no Power Steering Filter on a 2002 Subaru Legacy/Outback.
I found no mention of a power steering filter in the owner's manual or in the service manual for Outback.
Yes it should, since the are of the 3rd generation Legacy Outback. But don't quote me on this...
Same as any car with power steering. You can continue to steer the car but with increased effort.
Steering rack worn? Power steering pump going bad? Worn steering or suspension components? Frozen steering shaft?
use a turkey baster to suck it out.
The Emergency Killswitch in the Subaru Outback is located underneath the drivers-side steering panel. It is to the left of the steering column and looks like an inconspicuous button. Just press that with the keys in the ignition and with the electricity on.
The flasher on the Subaru Outback is located on the left side of the steering column and under the column itself. It is a square of about one inch on each side.
Switch on top steering column was flipped . clean car recently?
On my '96 Outback Wagon there's a rocker switch on top of the steering column, just forward of the steering wheel. It is marked with a "P" - if it is switched ON, a red color bar shows toward the driver. Try switching it to the other position, parking lights should be OFF. I think there's a separate switch because on the Outback, the lights controlled by the regular steering column switch go on and off with the ignition. I know of other cars that have a similar switch there for the hazard flashers, but on the Outback, it's the parking light switch. ;-)
"Parking Light Switch". See page 3-16 of your 'OWNER'S MANUAL" for description.....
