Re: FS 2006 pair of headlight housings no cracks very good condition

FWIW, an add at the bottom of this page shows me a brand new set for $97. [smilie=blush.gif] oh the irony THAT'S WHAT I'M SAYING! My wife sometimes gets frustrated and asks (at high volume) why I always have to be right. My answer is that it's not that I have to be, I just am. Don't get me wrong, I...

Re: FS 2006 pair of headlight housings no cracks very good condition

No, I put it in a PM to be polite rather than argue price in your FS thread with no intention of purchasing thus affecting the sale of your parts. that would be an a**. I'm blunt and literal. I recognize that what I said could be taken as maligning you but I'm not a diplomat to word it gently so I s...

LOL. Well, I tried being discrete and reasonably not an a**. Hit a nerve I guess.

Re: Tried everything else...

O2 sensors are a standard size, not a lot of options.

Have you followed the troubleshooting flowchart from Subaru in the FSM?

Re: Real life towing capacity

For liability reasons, I won't advocate passing the towing capacity of any vehicle. (automatics: 1k, manual: 2k, manual w/ trailer brakes: 2.4k) That being said, I have a few times. There are a lot of things that factor into it: tongue load, balance, height of the CG, vehicle dynamics, suspension of...

Re: 05 Baja

Just bought an 05 Baja with 112,000 miles. I want to start going thru it on safety items first. I'm thinking brakes, shocks, belts etc. Can anyone tell me if there are certain things this model had trouble with around this mileage that I might want to check out first? The correct answer - based on ...

Re: 05 Baja

As both a mechanic and an info-cow: Guac has it down pretty well except I will expand on some: regarding the banjo bolt filter... this is a secondary contributor to the failures of the turbos. I say that because there are other root causes that lead to gunk in the oil that the filter catches, after ...

Re: Member's Journal - The Bike Buggy thread

cool beans. FYI the M&S rating has absolutely no performance measure. it simply means that 20 or 25% of the surface of the tire is grooves (ie not touching the road) thus it's quite possible to have a non M&S rated tire to perform better on snow and ice than a M&S rated tire. Being in Texas, I don't...

Re: 05 Baja turbo shortblock

outback suspension will drop the baja a few inches

probably that both have the tiptronic or sport-shift mode automatics. I really hate that those were ever invented.

I would have never thought of dropping it out the bottom without a lift anyway. I have done so (not on a subie though) before though.

Re: Front wheel hub assembly with bearings installed

No, the item you have linked won't work even close, it's a bolt-on hub. ours must be pressed in. the only way around that is to get a whole knuckle (if unknown condition) from the junkyard.

Re: Head Gasket replace? Or motor swap

The turbo can make a huge difference... or it can blow up the engine. or you can piss away a lot of time/money doing it wrong and it makes little difference. If you want to add a turbo, just spend the next year reading about doing it, then bother. If you want to start modding, great. First, buy a re...

Re: Help with Part Identificant

you took them out and put them back in and have it leftover or you took them out and don't remember where it goes (prior to reinstalling all)? or you just want to know what it is?

Probably goes under the center console.
