I just installed led tail lights and turn signals and need to install a new flasher. I think it is near the fuse box but cannot recognize or find it. Can anybody help me?

The shop has had my vehicle for a month, is this repair that difficult and how much should it cost? The check engine light had been on when I had it checked. The car doesn't even have 90,000 miles on it! This is going to be expensive? I expected more from a Subaru! Extremely disappointing...

I have a water leak on the drivers side floor.After rain or a car wash,water shows up.Someone told me to check the FIREWALL!!
THANKS.

Moisture sensitive airbag system components may deteriorate in humid climate regions, causing an increase in inflator pressure which ruptures when passenger airbags are deployed. Injury can result from inflator parts striking an occupant. Dealers will replace affected airbag inflators to correct this concern. Subaru is the manufacturer of Saabs affected by this recall. This recall supersedes Subaru recall 14V-471.

This limited regional recall is for vehicles currently registered or first sold in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and equipped with Takata-brand air bag inflators. Upon deployment the driver and/or passenger airbag inflator could rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury. Subaru dealers will replace the affected airbag inflator modules to correct this concern.

Cracks may develop from the fuel hose connection at the outlet (pressure) side of the fuel pump. As a result, a fuel leak may develop, increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel pump bracket, including all nipples, with new, stronger part. This recall is expected to begin during September 2009. The Subaru recall number is WVJ-20.
