Flasher unit location + photo (L-series)

Post by SuBaRiNo » Fri Dec 29, 2006 2:02 am

Can i bother one of u fine gentlemen for a location and photo of a L series indicator flasher unit.

I realise this is an easy thing to find when the unit is working (search for the clicking unit) but when they are not then it is a bit of a treasure hunt.

I have no idea what this unit is meant to look like... hence needing a photo.

Thanks in advance
Dave

Yeah indcator flasher sorry. It's starting to sound like there is a different style flasher unit depending on the year L series....

If it is built into the indicator stick assembly then would that mean u have to replace that entire assembly to change the flasher??

Now to make it even MORE complex… The pic attached (Thanks waggaclint) is the 3rd different indicator flasher unit I have seen for an L series in the last week. The RX has only 1 of those cylinder units, the touring wagon has a double unit (they are connected) and this pic has 3.

And we say that Subaru’s are easy to work on LOL

So are you saying that its the relay that needs replacing not the actual small cylinders (as pictured)?

Nope no help ;-) The flasher unit in the wagon was berried up under the dash and it was a struggle just to get it out. I fear going higher will cause me much frustration and possible nose bleeding n dizzy spells.

Thanks I may pull it apart again on the wkd.
