Picked up a 2002 wrx in December, well maintained pile of documentation. Owner assured timing better was done. I have asked for proof and he agreed to send it. Ok now the question.... Can I remove the drivers side Timing belt cover? It seems the easiest way to look at the belt and since he claimed it was done about 3k miles ago it should be easy to see??? Right. Did download a Subaru shop manual and it looks like I should not have any surprises. Do I need to consider anything before I remove it?
2002, 101k miles, black wagon,only turbo back COBB. Setting up a uppipe removal and EM as it was not done. Got this car for my son but I can't keep from driving it. Now looking for a wrw/sti for myself!
