Take the timing belt cover off and look for damage to the belt teeth or cracks in the belt , but i wouldn't risk it don't take the chance get it done within the mileage time specified , a quick visual check on engine sti has red inlet manifold , wrx hasn't i think thats right :?

at 450 its must be a gold plated t/belt....................

although it can be done by simply removing the fans, we normally strip the radiator out and flush the coolant system at the same time (noone ever seems to bother so very worth while), strip the belt and check condirtion of the tensioner, pulleys, etc..........fit new belt and re-bleed coolant

takes around 3hrs or so and we charge 175inc. all in..................

online shop!!
