I had periodic clunking in the front tire of a 94 legacy. I Needed the "Ball joint" replaced. Parts and labor cost a couple hundred bucks. Get it fixed b/c if it snaps youll crash. It typically clicked or clunked as I made turns slowly like out the drive way or into a parking lot.

You need new cv joint, it could be either left or right because sound reflects. Some time you hear it from the right but it actually came from the left. Best to get mechanic to check it out whether it is a left or right cv joint

When should timing belt on 2003 Subaru Forester be replaced?

The timing belt on a 2003 Forester should be done at around 168k km or 105k miles. The auto-tensioner may also have to be changed as well as the idler rollers. A Subaru dealer will usually ask around $180 for the belt, $200-225 for the tensioner (if it needs to be replaced). You are looking at a good $500+ for the job if they don't run into problems.

Where can you find the headlight wiring diagram for a 2002 Subaru Forester that I don't have to pay for?

Hmmm, I have gone on a similar search for other vehicle's wiring diagrams and usually end up buying a Haynes manual for around $20 at the auto parts store or a CD version on eBay for a little less. If you plan on keeping your Forester and work on it yourself, buying a manual rather than just a wiring diagram just makes sense. Alternatively, you could ask your local Subaru dealer to photocopy the page(s) that you need from their manual. --Ken

Where to find transmission dipstick on 1999 Subaru Forester?

On an automatic transmission the dipstick is located in the engine compartment, driver's side, very close to the firewall. The handle is yellow to make it easy to see. You may need to move some wiring and hoses around a little to see it. It is low and close to the transmission. --Ken

How do you remove the headlamp assembly on a 2003 Subaru Forester for changing the light bulbs inside the assembly?

I have a 1999 Forester, but I imagine the 2003 is similar in this regard. You don't actually need to remove the headlamp to replace the bulb. On my car, I unplug the wire from the bulb at the back of the headlamp, remove the large rubber piece around the back of the bulb, unclip the clips that hold the bulb in place, remove and replace.
