Default 1999 legacy trans-bearing

99' legacy 2.5 gt, no upgrades. for the last year I have been having trouble with the main bearing on the output shaft. It all stared when I blew out the main shaft and 2nd grear, which they have a updated shaft where you the also have to replace-(add insto the new shaft) reverse idler gear, washer rev. idler, shaft rev. idler, and gear hub assy. So I take these parts to a transmission shop called TSI (transmission shops inc.). They go ahead put all the parts in and 1500 miles later the main bearing for the main shaft goes out. well now this has been going on for the last year and the bearing has been replaced 6 times!!!!!!!, oh yea and now its out for the 7th time and now out of warranty, they wont give me any answers and now want another 600 bucks to do it again, i'm sick of this b.s. cause I could have bought a whole new trans for all this time, money and b.s. anyone have any ideas please let me know....

find a trans shop who knows how to properly fix the trans. Take it to a subaru dealer, probably something else causing the failure that they are neglecting.

It seems that there should be some type of repairers warranty since they've had to re-do it so many times. Maybe if you have the dealer diagnose it (without necessarily repairing it) it will give you grounds to go after the shop that did the bad work. From you prior post, it looks like you put a lot into the car. Maybe it would be worth it to see this through considering all of the upgrades that you have done?

not sure how this is subaru's problem but +1 on taking it to them to solve. After all they know your car best. Or at least find someone else. Obviously something with the install each time is going bad... otherwise everyone else with 99 legacy would be going through 6 or more a year.

No parts warranty through TSI?
