Subaru Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello...welcome and thank you for using Justanswer.
Yes, it is possible .
In the engine bay fuse box there is an open slot for a fuse ,it is marked as FWD , just put a use into that slot and you should be on FRONT WHEEL DRIVE ,ONLY.
Let me now.
Thank you very much.
Hi there...first I apologize that I misread that you are located in Australia ,I am in USA and sometimes the vehicle years make difference from US and Australia , so the fuse for the FWD on your vehicle may be on the fuse box or by the wiper motor on the passenger side.
You cannot eliminate the dif. or remove any parts from inside of it .
You need you rear axles to keep your wheel bearing in place ,need the carrier in the dif to hold the axle shafts and you cannot remove the rear drive shaft once it slides into the transmission .
About the difs going bad one after another ...make sure they have the same ratio as the original of the vehicle or it will burn out again.
Let me know.
Hi there....I don't really know what went bad on your diff , bearings ,gears ???
If it's making a lot of noise you better off not drive the vehicle,there is always a chance where the diff can lock up.
The only way you can get the diff to be free from drive shaft and axles is removing the ring gear off the carrier but once again I don't know if the problem are the bearings.
To remove the ring gear ,you will need to remove the diff out of the vehicle and open it ,it will be lots of labor time ...I really think you better off get another diff (the right one for this vehicle ) and get it fix the right way.
Hi there ,have you spoke to your mechanic or decide witch way to g on your vehicle problem ?
Let me know if need any further info.
