Default couple of issues to ask about.

I just bought a 2001 legacy outback 2.5h. So a couple of issues have come up. The key does not like to come out of the column when I turn the car off. Then Today when we had stopped to grab something, we left the car running and there was clicking coming from the steering column. Second issue is I am getting a squelch at around 3k such as when accelerating to get on the highway. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you try rocking the steering wheel back and forth? Maybe the key is just hung up from the tension in the steering wheel lock...

Recent maintenance? I would guess the squelch could be one of the accessory belts either not tensioned correctly or in need of replacement.

My girlfriend's car had the same issue. Don't use fredmeyer's keys. Soon as we got a OEM key at subaru it stopped getting stuck.

I took several hours to open the role thing and put it back together.
