    2013 wrx factory service manual?

    It has always been a good practice of mine to obtain a FSM for all the vehicles I have owned. However I am unsure where to find one for my 2013 wrx.

    Yes I am aware you can purchase one from the dealer. I am looking for a downloadable copy in PDF or ebook format?

    Any help is appreciated

    I thought nowadays most service manuals were in electronic format that only dealers have access to. I would love to get my hands on a copy of the manual. If you figure out where to find one and the price please let me know. I will ask the stealership next time I'm there.

    The service manual is downloadable here:

    Subaru Technical Information System - Welcome

    72 hour subscription for $34.95. The bad news is that the manual is available in something like 800 pieces, and you can download no more than 50 PDFs per hour. Subaru's rationale for that is a little implausible.

    At least one vendor on eBay has compiled these into a single PDF, and sells it for rather less than $35. I don't know about things like copyright, but it's a lot more convenient, and cheaper, than Subaru's offering.

    thank you for the link, the ebay vendor might be questionable I don't know, probably is in violation of some law. Anyway for $35 if you have at least some free time you can download the full 800 pieces in under 3 days with a lot of time to spare.

    i really don't want to be that guy.. but literally the first link you get when you search wrx service manual is this:
    Factory Service Manuals

    its a HUGE .pdf file, and the 2014 is probably 99.999999% the same as the 2013 manual.

    your welcome

    Awesome thank you for this! Interesting reading... The 2011 service manual notes 2011+ improvements to the turbo oil delivery system. The turbocharger has its' own dedicated oil delivery source separate from the OCV supply.

    This is possibly what allowed them to extend oil change intervals to 7,500 miles.

    No banjo bolt filter for the turbocharger supply.

    Maybe lol? This has been debated over for so long as to how they managed to extend oil changes to 7,500 miles without risking turbo oil starvation.
