Q: How much will it cost to fix? And could I do the repair myself? on 2001 Subaru Outback

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I have a whinning noise underneath when I acellerate or climb a hill. I just changed the front diffential gear oil after 1600 miles and found about a thumb nails worth of filings in the magnetic plug. How long till I am needing a tow truck?

I work on a lot of Subarus, just pulling the transmission out of my brother's 2002 MY Outback regularly serviced not abused front diff is gone out, trans bearings are expensive and I think are only available form Subaru.
Where would you take your Outback to have the front diff. repaired? Are the metal fileings from a bearing or a gear? The nearest Subaru dealer is about 60 mile from me. Removing and installing the front diff. seem to be the hardest part of the job.
