    driveshaft cover ??

    Ok I bought a invidia g200 tbe and I have had this problem since I put it on
    There is a cover that goes over the driveshaft towards the rear of the car and
    My exhaust is hitting it causing a rattle I was wondering if I could just remove
    It without causing any problems or what your advice would be to to thanks any
    Help would greatly be appreciated

    I'm assuming your talking about the cover at the rear of the driveshaft back by the rear diff?..That little cover..I believe its like 6 or 8 14mm bolts...they can be a PITA to get out all rusted and whatnot..anyways..Some Subarus have them and others don't...Personally I wouldn't think there would be a problem in just pulling it off....

    Without a picture, I'm just guessing... but it sounds like you have the OEM rear diff. cover installed. And those have issues rubbing when you swap the OEM exhaust out for a performance, 3" piping exhaust. You could just remove the rear diff. cover and be fine or maybe get a nice 2.5" exhaust.

    Just take the rear differential cover off.

    It's also possible to grind down the area of the cover that's impacting the exhaust. It'd be a little more work, but you'd be able to protect your rear differential from low flying rocks and ... debris?... if that's a problem in your area.
