  1. Model Year 2012 to 2017 2013 Subaru XV AC Compressor issues

    Interior, Audio, and HVAC
    Recently my AC would cut in and out more and more especially when I am idle. I saw there is a TSB 10-84-16R, which states that older models had a bad wiring component in the clutch. The TSB says part number 73111FJ040. When I look up this part number Subaru says its for 2014-2017 models. They...
  2. Air Conditioning dripping a LOT of water after use.

    Interior, Audio, and HVAC
    Hi guys, just got my 2018 Sunshine Orange base model XVCrosstrek about three weeks ago. It's been extremely hot here lately, so I've been running the AC on quite a bit and at high speeds to boot. I've noticed quite a large puddle of water after I'm done driving the car and it's been sitting...
  3. Model Year 2012 to 2017 A/C Compressor Short Cycling at higher RPM

    Dealer Service Problems, Maintenance, Warranty, TS
    I have a 2015 MT that has recently been giving me some issues with the air conditioning. The air still blows cold, however the compressor seems to be short cycling when the engine RPM's are anything above roughly 2,000. It seems to kick on for about 4-6 seconds, then off for roughly 6-10...
  4. Model Year 2012 to 2017 XV Crosstrek 2014 Limited A/C Issue

    Dealer Service Problems, Maintenance, Warranty, TS
    Hi all, first post here in a few years. I wanted to bring this to your attention as I believe it should be noted. I'm sure it exists elsewhere but using the Search feature I couldn't locate it. I have a 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Limited (in orange, yes!) and I've had ZERO issues with it to...
  5. Model Year 2012 to 2017 '14 AC Compressor Issues, Common/Uncommon, Thoughts?

    Dealer Service Problems, Maintenance, Warranty, TS
    Hey gang, I have a 2014 Crosstrek that my family absolutely loves. I put a lot of miles on my car (2k / month) in commuting back and forth from Baltimore to DC. The only complaint my family has is the trouble we've experienced with the AC. Almost exactly a year ago we noticed the air...
  6. Model Year 2012 to 2017 Blower motor and hissing sounds (Crosstrek XV 2015)

    Dealer Service Problems, Maintenance, Warranty, TS
    Hi, I am hoping that you all can help with this issue I am having. I recently purchased a used Crosstrek XV 2015. Great car, but I am hearing some noises I believe indicate issues. First, the blower motor, even though the insulated dash piece on the passenger side is installed, makes quite a...
  7. Model Year 2012 to 2017 '14 A/C Compressor and Complete System Replacement

    Dealer Service Problems, Maintenance, Warranty, TS
    I wanted to share a recent and on-going experience. Background About 1 month ago my 2014 XV air conditioning stopped performing like it did new. The air coming out of the vents was not sustained cool and measured about 60 degrees F. This was acceptable in the shade or on cool days, but not in...
  8. Ac compressor clutch noise?

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    My AC Compressor makes this sound. I want to know if anyone knows how to fix it. I'm not one to take my car into a dealership. Is it just a bad clutch on the compressor? is it fixable or does it need to be replaced. (This isn't my video but I have the same year, model, and issue)
  9. 11,500 miles, here is what is wrong

    Dealer Service Problems, Maintenance, Warranty, TS
    2016 Hyper Blue Premium A/C is not very good at all. If the car is sitting in the shade, the A/C seems to do just okay. If it is hot, the A/C barely does anything. And if I get on it say going up a steep hill or getting onto the highway, it will start to blow warm air until i ease up on the...
  10. Air Conditioning with engine stopped

    Subaru XV Hybrid General Discussion
    I'm considering trading in my Outback for the XV Hybrid, and am currently doing my research. Is the A/C able to cool when the engine stops? If not, does the A/C automatically cycle off/on, or does the engine just never shut down when the A/C is on? TIA!
