    New to club WRX

    I purchased my WRX from M Berenis of Suby Pal fame. After driving to Maine from FL and another couple of
    thousand miles around Maine, the pinion shroud cover on the starter shattered, driving the bendix wide open
    and temporarily not allowing the car to shift. I now have it up on rear blocks and 6 ton jack stands in the front to pull all the gear down and drop the tranny. Are there any "stock" under chassis diagrams available?

    There are so many after market parts on the car, I am trying to document what is stock and what is not.

    Can't help you with the diagram, but since you have it up, now would be a good time to snap a bunch of pics for us to look at to assist with determining the modifications. All around the engine bay, underneath the car, and post em up!

    Good plan, thanks. My grandmother who passed last year at 100 was from Media PA.
    I did a good portion of my growing up in the Newark DE area.

    Thank you look forward to communicating, where are you? It will be awhile, with the task at hand but is there a good "tuner" in Maine?

    I think bendix is an old term. This probably isn't quite correct, when you turn the key and the pinion shaft moves
    forward to engage the starter pinion to the flywheel, the electrical part that moves the shaft forward at one time was
    called the bendix. I had my first service station mechanic use that term and then another did also and I ran with it.
