    Some part questions.

    Hello all, I own a 2005 WRX. I actually just bought it. It has just about 197k on it. I need some some parts and was wondering if you all could give me some suggestions or affirm Im heading in the right direction.

    So I got some pictures back from my mechanic today about the noise my 2005 WRX was making. He thinks its in the clutch or the starter since I didnt hear it until I replaces the starter. Well he pulled the starter off and since he had it on the lift he could actually check out the fly wheel.. Its in pretty bad shape. I guess the dude who I got it from had a bad starter longer then he led me to believe.



    Looking at this one. Good? fair price?

    So while we are there, we figure we should replace the clutch as well. Its got 197k on it and Im almost positive its on the stock clutch. It feels ok to me but my mechanic says he can tell it is tired. So I figure Ill just replace it.

    So this is the one Im looking at. Is this going to be ok? Id like to increase HP soon, but at this rate its going to be awhile before I can rebuild the motor... so will this work and last a bit with some power eventually?

    passenger side axel is also bad he said.


    Ok replacement?





    If you have any suggestions on parts please let me know.I do have a budget, so I really cant drop $500 on a clutch. Id like to keep it around 500-600 total if possible. Id like to order the parts this week to have them to install this weekend. Thanks for your help.

    I'd get a replacement OEM flywheel. The Exedy OEM replacement clutch kit is just fine. Usually what most people go for when it's time.

    thats the one I was thinking about and had linked. Sweet. Just wanted to get conformation that it was good enough. I know Exedy is a good brand, but its been awhile since Ive been in the car world. I know a lot can happen in a few years. thanks!

    You know anywhere I can get the OEM flywheel I cant find them online anywhere? Dealer only?

    Thanks!


    But why the hell are they more than some aftermarket ones? I wasnt aware they all used the same flywheel either. thanks. That will help a lot searching.

    Failure of the passenger side CV boot is also common and can be saved if caught early enough. Yours looks like it's run dry since the grease that came out of it appears old/dust covered.

    That scares me. My started has a broken flange so it's only held on by one bolt and I've been putting off replacing it.

    Yeah, Im assuming thats why he wants me to buy a whole axle. You think the one I have linked will be ok? My mechanic can replace everything, but since we trade labor he usually has me order all my own parts so no money exchanges hands. And I usually help if I can. His shop > my garage and small tool box. haha

    If the car is stock (or close to it), I'd recommend an OE replacement clutch. Exedy makes one, and it'll be a bit cheaper than OE. PM me for a price, if you're interested.
