1992 Legacy BC Heater Core replacement part

Post by Olduser1 » Mon Feb 11, 2019 7:47 pm

My 1992 Legacy Turbo developed a leak from the heater core over the New Year, I manged to by pass the hoses although I damaged the heater core 5/8th metal tubing coming out of the bulkhead.
I'm over in the UK where replacement parts hoses & heater core are v scarce - new from Japan $300 + postage.
The part number is 72012 AA000 this may be the same for Gen 2 Legacy's.

Can members comment or suggest replacement heater core supplier from the USA ?

Looks like it's RHD vehicle specific. In the US we did get a few RHD legacys, called the postal wagon.

I usually get parts from rockauto.com, but there's also AutoZone.com and https://www.oreillyauto.com

Some of the online Subaru dealerships are willing to ship international. If you would like to see about a Subaru part I can pass along contact info of someone you can talk with.

Josh, thanks again for your advice & comments , I'm faced with a task I don't relish .
I wanted to check what the access was like if I could lift the old heater core out of the unit by undoing the two metal pipes , none of the UK forum guys have a used heater core unit off the car.

Your part number matches the earlier gen 2 Legacys as well, you should be able to find one of those easier?
