60000 mile service tday

Hi
Did most of my 60K sevrice today. Just got brake fluid change and screen wash fluid 2 do Going to do the latter now before top gear 8)

It has cost me 183.09 up to now and say 5 for brake fluid. Subaru wanted 420.
Upgrade Air filter cost nearly 50

However it did take me 6 hours :roll: and those spark plugs are a tw#t :shock:

All done now thanks for all your posts Guys and Girl they did help

Hi
Yes is had to take the washer bottle out and my standard air filter to get at the plugs. The two plugs near the front of the car are the easiest. There is very little clearance between the bodywork for the other two. Full Subaru service history till yesterday and they had scraped the paint getting the f##kers out ops:
I replaced the standard air filter with an MRT one
40 mins to do next time

Trust me worst job ive done yet is putting 6x9`s in rear shelves(twice-got roped in to doin a mates after id done mine)
Put blitz irridium plugs in mine so wont be changing them for a while hopefully anyway. think generally scoobys are easy to service tho.(took it elsewhere for the cambelt tho dint fancy doin that)

Hi Plugs aint that bad. You will need to take the washer bottle out and the Air filter box. Good idea to use all your screen wash fluid first
I didnt completly discon' the washer bottle. Just removed the feed to the screen and dis con the pump power then sat the thing on the engine, pi##ing water in my pit :shock: Trying to avoid all the electrics
I used average socket set from Haldfords. It did get a bit close to the bodywork at times. Bought a torque wrench for screwfix for 12.49 and would never have got the plugs out of the rear diff oil without it :shock: 18 inch arm

Also need a 21mm socket for my gearbox oil. Thats only in my kit from a Peugeot I had :shock: It was very good for putting everthing back together

It did take me 6 hours but I recon only 3 next time.

Kev.
