Posting here as the Exiga is based on the Legacy platform so it's the closest match.
Today my partner drive with bubs to get her flu jab - she said the car was 'making a funny noise' - thanks for that hun - I instantly thought big end's ..... Turns out there was a small fire in the engine bay, standing in front of the radiator, right-hand front side as per photo's below.
Can anyone knowledgable tell me what the component is and why it might've done this?
Part close up
