If you are trying to do it yourself, remove the airbox and drill the bolt out. If not, take it to a shop and have them do it. Shouldn't be more than a couple hours of labor and the cost of a new bolt.
I have to drill it out? It's not like a simple screw/unscrew situation?
Got it. Thanks lad.I have a 2011 so my stock airbox is different than yours but the bolt is broken off inside what looks to be a shock mount (which my airbox doesnt have). Drilling out screws/bolts is pretty easy to do, just drill into the bolt and put the extractor in the hole you drilled and back it out (auto zone sells extraction kits for cheap).
If you aren't comfortable with it, don't try it because failing will only make it worse for whoever goes in behind you to get it out. Drilling bolts is a relatively routine procedure for any mechanic so anywhere that is reputable should be able to get it done. They would just have to pull the airbox to get a straight shot at the bolt shank with a drill. Labor costs depends on the shop. The airbox is easy to pull and like I said, drilling it is quick. Maybe somewhere in the neighborhood of $100-$150 out the door?
Don't feel bad about it, I've snapped a few bolts on my car. My first one was when I was pulling my intercooler and I snapped the bolt off in my turbo. That wasn't cool. These things happen from time to time.
Oh wow! I was not on this forum for about a week because I assumed this thread would be dead but this changes everything! I'll most likely DIY it now because you've made it much simpler!! Thanks a lot dude!Just because I am bored, I did the work for you.
The nut on the side you broke off:
Part #023806006 -Listed for $.80 cents from Subaru
The actual part with the rubber bushing on it. Listed as a "Cushion-Chamber"
Part #46022AE010 -Listed for $7.78
Just call your Subaru dealership and give them those part numbers, have them order them if they don't have them. Less than a 10 dollar fix. All oem and original.
