Default Key Fobs

Has anyone with an older legacy used a key fob remote from a newer 05+ subaru?

I want the teardrop shaped one that came with 4th gen legacy, forester, etc.

I have a 2001 LGT wagon.

Sorry for bringing this old thread up but I'm wondering the same thing. I just bought an 01 forester S and I'd like to know if I can change the whole keyfob set to a keyfob+key combo like on the newer subuaru's. I know i can buy the ebay keyfob but I want to know if they would work on a 01 forester. Please give me any info or direct me to a different site or link if you can. Thank you so much!

Is bigger than yours.


There are 2 different teardrop remotes, one for the older stuff, and one for the newer ones.

The old square fobs have been discontinued from Subaru, so by default you'll get a teardrop.

I highly highly highly doubt that one of the keys with buttons on it will work with the ones that use the older lower tech fobs.
