  2. Maintenance, service, and repair
    To my gearhead buddies: My 2017 WRX spun a bearing just 10,000 miles out(70,XXX) of the manufacturer warranty but I bought a 3rd party full extended warranty so I was covered. I've had to take it to the subaru dealership 5 times now. 1st time: spun bearing, metal all throughout the oil...
  3. Maintenance, service, and repair
    Alright, so Im fairly new to car mechanics but I’m very interested in learning how to build cars, so my friends and I bought a rolling body of a 2004 Impreza wrx for 700, no engine, a trans that is presumably stuck in first gear, and I really don’t know a whole lot about the engine bay and what...
  4. Suspension & Wheels
    So i went to change my wheels from winter to summer, awhile back and noticed this dark black clumpy grease all over the inside of my wheel. I figured it was the cv joint boot and decided I should replace it since the Front passenger axle seemed fine. So i replaced it with my buddy and when we...

  6. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    Hey guys I have a friend with a 2009 wrx and his FR outer cv joint clacks on sharp turns. We replaced it with a new masterpro drive axle and it started making noise after about 20 miles so we warrantied it and again it failed in under 100 miles. I’ve been doing a decent amount of research on...
  7. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    I know its a stupid question, but does anyone know how to replace fog light bulbs in a 04 WRX ? Another thing, after installing an HID kit, I keep having electrical problems, all the interior lights keep blowing out, along with fog lights after a few months of replacing them. I took the HIDs out...
  8. Transmission & AWD
    I have 2004 Subaru WRX with 100k miles, that I bought new and the car is stock (more or less, other than a much appreciated brake upgrade). About 6k miles ago, my mechanic noticed a noise that he suspects is a failing Input Shaft Bearing on the transmission. It sounds like a...

  12. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    Hi, I have an 05 WRX that needs new front brakes. I called my local dealers, and they want $94.95 for the rotors. Each. And they want $94.95 for the pad sets. Each. That seems pricey to me. I can do BMW brakes for that. I'm new to the WRX world, and I'm not familiar with the suppliers. Can...
  13. Interior Mods
    I bought a 2002 WRX wagon in 2007 that has an aftermarket waist spoiler on it. I think it adds a nice little touch, but I would never put it on there myself. The issue is that sometimes when I close the hatch or, more likely, when someone else closes it, the force of it coming down loosens...
