    Question about OEM Timing Belt Brand !!!

    Greetings everybody. My first post on this particular board, and just have a quick question. I have recently bought my 2002 WRX Wagon. Bought her with 88k on the clock and is in AMAZING condition. Engine bay and all components are sounds and have been maintained. My question is what is the brand of the OEM timing belt ? My car is currently running a Mitsubishi 5PK877 Timing belt so i believe it has already been replaced. Does anybody know if that is stock or has been already been maintained ? Thanks everybody.

    The timing belt isn't due until 105K miles. Sorry I don't know what markings the OEM belt has.

    I would like to help you... but when I replaced my timing belt there were no markings remaining @ 7X,XXX miles. I think most peoples will be like this since the belt also rides on the smooth side in the timing circuit. If it helps any I bought a OEM replacement belt from subaru and it said Subaru on it w the part numbers. Can't tell you for sure thats what it comes with though.

    Well, yes, in a way. For instance I work for Ford, and although all of our timing belts are "OEM" some are actually different. Sometimes a company uses multiple vendors or makes a item in multiple locations. Also manufactures switch vendors alot as well. Not to mention on top of all of this that "OEM" parts that come on cars might only show up on "brand new" cars. For instance OEM ford spark plug wires are not the same over the counter as the ones that come on a "new vehicle." Basically I'm saying my timing belt didn't say that, but I wouldn't "hang my hat" on the belt already being replaced from just my response.
