  1. DIY and 3rd party Maintenance, How To's & Tools
    First time posting here! I am going to be purchasing a new bumper for my 21 XT in a month or two. When I have to cut the factory bumper I’m aware that I’ll have to reroute the windshield washer reservoir. Has anyone done this and if so, how can it be done. I have an idea of what I can possibly...
  2. Engine and Drivetrain
    Hello good people, I've not posted on here for a few years. Hope all is well with your Crosstreks. Have been having a somewhat difficult time starting my car recently. The cranking process is prolonged. Did a few searches and it appears PCV or spark plugs need replacement. I used the...

    Hey guys! I’ve had my 2019 crosstrek limited for about 2 months, and I love it. Coming from a lifted 2018 Forester XT that I did a lot of camping and offroading in, it was nice to move to a similar platform and continue my hobby! Done a few mods since I got it. The big one was the custom DIY...
  4. Engine and Drivetrain
    Did the spark plugs change for wife's 17 Trek over the weekend. I can not separate the coil boot from the wiring that is attached by a spring loaded connector. I tried push the spring down and pull but the connector is not showing sign of moving. Rather than damaging it I ended up not take...

    I am updating this forum post for 2023 in the wake of its exploding popularity. I will be improving the flow of the write-up, adding feedback from others who have completed retrofits themselves, and updating the parts list. Thank you to everyone who has provided feedback, and please continue to...

    Soooo... I wasn't able to find many 1st gen Crosstreks that have had their headlight housing blacked out (DIY style). I decided to take the dive and do it myself this past weekend. What I was trying to go for was an JDM/OEM sort of look. I didn't want it to look cheap or look like a heavily...

    So I hit a semi tire re-tread a while back. It did some cosmetic damage to the front bumper and black body cladding. It also damaged the engine “mud guard”. This started the itch to upgrade to aluminum skid plates. I looked at various skid plates online and really like primitive racing’s...

    Plastidip is fun! It allows you to do all kinds of projects. My latest one was to blackout the hood of my Venetian Red Crosstrek. The color contrast is frickin awesome!! I created a video detailing the entire process for anyone who might be interested in doing the same thing or to just learn...

    Does anyone happen to know the dimensions and distance between mounting screws for the stock tweeters? Thinking about installing these: Tymphany BC25SC55-04 1" Square Frame Tweeter if I can adapt the mounting hardware from the stock tweets. Thanks, Matt

    Does anyone own a set of Rhino Ramps? I am wondering how high they are at their tallest point. I was thinking with such a high ground clearance as on the Crosstrek, maybe I could purchase 4 of the ramps and drive up on all 4 at the same time. I can't really find good info. Someone said they...

    Hi guys, I figured I would quickly post my painted stock grille for those who were wondering what it looks like. You can mask off everything that isn't chrome, but I removed those pieces from the rest of the grille. If you have nay questions feel free to ask. Nick

    I figured since the interiors are basically the same that I would provide the steps I did to install a BlackVue DR650GW-2CH dashcam. It can probably work with any other 2 channel system. I didn't take any pictures of my Power Magic Pro install as I'm still cleaning that portion up. Link to my...

    For those who like do-it-yourself projects. Here is something basic to assist in a DIY Ground Kit for the Subaru XV Crosstrek. Cable Lengths Used in photos: Battery Negative - 1 = 19" 1 - Alternator = 40" Alternator - 2 = 32" 2 - 3 = 28" 3 - Throttle Body = 13" If pics can't be seen, here is a...
