Did this video help you?

Ronald Cruz: I have a 2012 subaru forester is it pretty similar process to this? Also question im hearing the noise on the cv axle but i checked and non the covering boots are broken could my subaru have another issue?

Fatal Pelican: If I donated how much money you have saved me, you'd be able to make a few house payments. I LOVE the Subaru repairs. The 2nd and 3rd gen fixes are so helpful. Thank you so much.

manonedge66: Do you have a video on the rear cv axle? is it similar or completely different?

Allan Chow: hello, i have the persistent front right axle seal leak on my 2008 outback MT. replaced seal twice professionally both aftermarket and subaru seals but tranny oil still leaks. currently using aftermarket cv axle. Do you have a solution for this issue?

TheWallacePro: thanks

Clearanceman2: Just pop the hub off the ball joint and that way you don't need to worry about camber at all. Also, your idea of Utah rust is charming. I live in the rust belt and you don't realize how rust free you have it. Nice tip about the dowl, starting in the car sucks although if you put the punch in a vice grip, you can tap the vice grip pretty well generally.

Clearanceman2: Honestly, this isn't bad. I've done it a few time. I've found if you take a digging stick AKA spud bar and put it over the lower control arm and put the flat end under the unibody square are behind the wheelwell, you can pull the ball joint out of the hub with one hand. The thing is six feet long and it give you ridiculous leverage. Here's the tool I'm talking about

Logan Gibbs: I've watched a few videos for changing cv axles on older subaru's, this is by far the best I've come across. You just made my dyi job way easier, thank you.

rwalt7: Saved me more money again. Thanks Brian, your awesome!

Primavox Solutions: Do you (or anyone reading) have a video or instructions on how to do this on a 2011 and newer Forester?

house ofmasquerades: ditto the others suby keeps movin along thanks to brian.

Bobby Wheatley: I've been turning to your videos for the last 3 years when I have issues with my Suby---You're the best!

Keli'i Aoyagi: Mahalo for your help! Helps me to catch mistakes

Nelson Chua: good info, thanks for doing this. Although I got dizzy watching it....

Scott Smith: This guy is my go-to youtube source for all things wrenches and Subarus. Got a 2001 Forester that keeps me busy. Using Brian's help, have done head gaskets, both front CV axles, oil pan reseal, etc. Buy him a beer!

Senthil Kumar: Yes, easy to follow videos! Thanks

MrSoulMonk: Thanks for the great video Brian. I have an '04 Outback wagon, and I have seen two different approaches to getting this done. The service manual talks about undoing the castle nut on the control arm at the bottom, popping the ball joint, and then yanking the axle out. The method you demonstrate is more common. I do not have the pickle fork or the ball joint puller to do what the manual says, and am debating which approach is better. This is my first DIY axle. Thanks!

Mario Aguirre: I have a question, what if you pulled the spline out of the gear box? I'm having trouble getting it back in past the keeper ring.

Jeremy Connor: Dude, thanks for these Subaru videos; you're making my first time Gearbox removal/repair a LOT easier!
