Re: Timing Belt Change Cost

guy up the road from me if you get the parts he will do it for 150 quid
he also said its rare for subarus to snap belts try and pick up a cosworth kevlar coated one much goodness

it pisses me off no end when garages hear impreza turbo and they add on a few hundred quid

the guy up the road from me has built and fixed all kinds a rally cars and performance stuff id def leave mine with him hes the one that told me i needed a new ecu after all the shiz i went through


he also has a list of crossover parts that are the same feckin part but the turbo one has a extre 30 40 50 70 90 100 any advance on 100 quid on to them

Re: Timing Belt Change Cost

True some garages round here would charge for a timing belt (parts supplied)then fitted to the impreza 250 and up to 400-500 then the likes of an Evo 170-300 some difference maybe should have gone for the inline 4 engine in the Evo eh NO THANKS love the flat 4 burble

John said that it's ok to leave that there for another while as well.

Re: Timing Belt Change Cost

Mines went a 76k. Had to get flywheel skimmed to as it was down to the rivets both sides. Was juddering a bit to begin with then it started to slip. Big enough job on a blob eye. I got an exedy off eurocarparts as they where the cheapest I could find. It's hydraulic and there is no adjustment on it

No judder as yet, thought i felt a slip, higher clutch point and not to clean gear change a few times. Could just be me being a overly obsessive

Euro Car parts couldn't live without them

Re: Timing Belt Change Cost

You would prob find slippage after changing to a higher gear on full boost if there is a problem

Gave the car a clear out on way home it feels ok, was thinking it maybe could be the hotter weather!!?? Mind you i think i might have burnt the clutch out now it was minging LOL

What causes clutch drag? Just checked out clutch drag so, still dont have a clue lol! Altho it mentions clutch cable could be sagging, did mention earlier if there was an adjustment?

What Is Clutch Slip & Drag? | eHow.com this will tell you what you want to know is your clutch run by cable or hydraulic you'll see the clutch master cylinder next to brake master cylinder if hydraulic if hydraulic it will not be able to be adjusted only the cable can be adjusted

Re: Timing Belt Change Cost

Checked eHow - I think i might well be feeling the start of wear and tear on the clutch and going by the mileage probably. It is a cable clutch not hydraulic which i didnt think it was so, i might get away with an adjustment for now and from there will just drive until i feel things getting worse for now i need to concentrate on getting the timing belt sorted

Re: Timing Belt Change Cost

not sure why he's mentioning the metal on the tensioner, its not the metal that fails its the rubber seal on the hydraulic piston that fails and weeps fluid out. yes you can check them to see if they are or not, but not sure why he would say 'o there ok there metal' :S
