'06 Forester Heater/Mode Cables Deform
Discovery ? We installed a complete heater and mode control system including the dash panel from a 2003 Forester ( $50. thanks to a used parts yard here in Maine). The complete OEM system from Subaru was about $300. The newer cables and our 2006 cables were thin gauge single strand wire.
The older '03 cables were thicker, more rigid, multi strand.
Our '06 cable wire had simply deformed around itself. Yes we're in Downeast Maine, BUT ?
Any others with this 'problem' ?
Looks like Subaru beancounters wanted to save a few pennies.
