2004 Subaru Forester Drivetrain Repair & Service

2004 Subaru Forester Drivetrain Service

Your Forester drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2004 Subaru Forester to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Subaru's recommendations.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2004 Subaru Forester? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
