A rattle type noise may be noted from the front of the vehicle. This type of noise is commonly caused by front sway bar bushings or end links which have failed. It is determined these parts have failed, replacement will be required.

Some problems have been noted with the remote start system. Our technicians tell us that replacing the ignition switch antenna ring and wire harness will generally correct this concern.

A rattle type noise may be noted from the tailgate area. This can commonly be repaired by modifying or changing the tailgate weather seal.

we replaced the fan belt tenstioner pully but the battery light, rear diff.and brake lights stay on , we are being told we need to re-set the comp.?

No oil in antifreeze or antifreeze in oil. Combustion leak test shows exhaust gases but no white or blue smoke out tailpipe. Any option besides head gasket replacement?

I researched the problems with the Tribeca and I am concerned that although the leak down test failed, that perhaps I also have a head gasket that has blown... is there any way of determining if this has happened so I can save a little money on the " mechanic's discovery" charge?

The accessory lights that illuminate the area under the doors are referred to as "puddle" lights. An electrical short circuit can develop when either the puddle light or its connector are exposed to an electrolytic moisture source (such as road spray that has road salt in it) and it penetrates the circuit board of the puddle light or the pins of the puddle light connector(s). The short circuit can generate heat which may melt the plastic resulting in smoke or fire. Subaru dealers will install an additional fused-harness, to protect the puddle light system.
