Thanks for the info, Lurch. But I still need to know how much replacing one of these sensors is going to set me back (on average) and whether one of better known auto repair chains (Firestone, Goodyear, etc.) is qualified to do the replacement. I have checked with my two local Subaru dealerships and the soonest I can get a service appointment is next Thursday or Friday. And I just can't wait that long to get this work done.

My appologies, I overlooked that...........


Part will vary from Original to Aftermarket
Part is apprx $98.99 - 160.00
Labor will also vary from shop to shop.

Labor $ 65.00 - 125.00 per hour. Book calls for 1 1/2 hours


I would recommend Dealer, as many Service Shops do not have the Scan Tool to competely check & program if needed.
