I have heard you can remove a fuse to disable AWD
I have a 1997 Subaru Outback Limited wagon. I was having major issues with torque binding but didn't have $1k to fix it, so I called a couple of local Subaru dealers and asked their in-house mechanic if there was any issue with putting the fuse in to override it into FWD... both said no. They both said there was no safety issue, nor would it do any type of damage to the car. They said the only issue is that it might wear out the C-Duty Solenoid faster than usual. One of the mechanics said it might happen in 5 days... might be 5wks... might be 5mos or even 5 years... no way of knowing. It was just the luck of the draw.
I've now had it in FWD mode for almost 11mos and there hasn't been an issue one.
