Best Answer

You have to remove the entire transmission, and the tranny is in 3 parts. Back of it is the transfer case which houses the center differential (viscus unit), the middle section is the gearbox itself, and the front section (bell housing) is the front differential. All of these sections can be separated and replaced individually.

As for specifics on step-by-step instructions, that's beyond the scope of my patience and technical aspirations of WikiAnswers unfortunately.

Yes, it will fit and mount up just fine. But you will have to make sure the front differential gear ratio matches that of your rear differential. Or what you could do is swap the transmission from the Forester along with the rear differential from the Forester
