any legacy owners notice a clicking noise?
 
its the shift interlock solenoid and the noise means its working so SOA does not see it as a problem. someone actually traded in their outback because of this, but problem came back on the newer one. im just so annoyed hearing this noise when my radio is at a low volume. subaruoutback.org is not very helpful sometimes, im just wondering if anything can be done. i'm sure some legacy owners have this problem.

I have the identical noise in my '11 Outback. I normally don't notice it unless I'm doing a lot of stop and go driving. I don't know what it would take to buffer the noise though.

This is on a CVT equipped Legy/Outback?

When are you hearing a clicking noise? I haven't noticed it on my 2012 CVT.

yes, this is only in automatic vehicles. actually, its different from car to car. my car didn't do it when i bought it. my wife's '12 impreza w/ a CVT doesn't do it yet. just if anyone here has any insight. there's a few threads on subaruoutback.org but thats just old guys talking about what they paid or how good of gas mileage theyre getting

My 3.6 w/ the 5sp auto doesn't have this issue, perhaps it's just in the cvt.

I've had it in mine and other vehicles as well; it's just louder in my Subaru.

i read this thread as well as the other and have yet to hear this noise. 2011 cvt. Where is it coming from on those who have the issue.

It literally is just louder in Subaru's, because other cars in my house don't have this loudness.

i read someone said their 3rd gen outback clicked louder than their 4th gen. for me it seems to come from in front of the steering wheel, my hearing is kinda fucked up from being in the army though. i only hear it when the radio is down low so the wife can bitch at me or when my 2 year is falling asleep.

Yeah, well my radio is almost never off or at low volume, so i rarely notice it.

When is this click noise occurring?

bradze 10-15-2012 11:05 AM

usually at speeds under 50mph. this morning i was listening to talk radio and then i hear a click about once a minute. usually after 20 mins of driving it goes away.
