VTRANSAXLE BINDING & SHUDDERING

Subaru Other

Imprezza Outback, 1997, 2.2L, AT, 122K miles, AWD

My car is shuddering and binding or grabbing when I go into slow, sharp turns such as parking at a lot.

I had transmission and differevtial fluids replaces problem still exists. Putting in anti-friction fluid helps some. Put fuse into FWD fuse holdier in engine compartment to force car into FWD. Problem goes away as long as fuse is installed. No engine light or flashing transmission codes. Local shop want to replace the intire transmission/transaxle. I don't think this is neccesary.

Any thoughts or help appreciated.
