Question 75k service

My scoob is very close to needing 75k service.

after ringing round a few places prices seem to vary all over the shop, also what seems to need to be changed.

been told, oil, filter, spark plugs + general check over.

then another place said oil + filter + check, no plugs.

when i bought the car a year ago i had a major service done just to make sure, all fluids, engine oil, gearbox oil, diff oil, engine coolant, brake fluid, air filter and spark plugs.

so my question is, what needs to be done?

its a my00 classic uk turbo by the way.

Hope this helps ? if you haven't done 15K in the last 12 months, it should only be oil/filter + general check over.


Service intervals for your Classic. (Replace)

every 15,000 (spark plugs)

........ 30,000 (Fuel filter, Trans & Diff oil, Air filter, Brake fluid)

........ 40,000 (Cam belts)

My Classic 'log book' says 45000 mile Cam belt.
Spark plugs and all other fluids every 30000.
Oil and oil filter every 7500.

Hi Do you get pi55ed 0ff paying for services?
DIY its easy.
Look at the manuals and ask on .ORG it's easy and cheaper.
The last time I asked Subaru charged 65 per hour. They will never repair anything.
All they do is bolt on new parts.
I did a 6 year apprenticeship now a Toolmaker 11.50 per hour.

Do it your self m8 and then you will know its right.
I fcuk hate garages the last lot fcuked my clutch Twats.

FYI I have an MY00 and I was told, by the previous owner, that the cam belt was extended to 60K on the later models. I've got a bit of paper from Subaru confirming this.

although i only pay 25 an hour lol

tbh, getting to the stage of thinking about starting to myself, for stuff like brake pads etc, prob get them to do oil chnages due to being easier to lift car empty etc, just get charged 25 + few quid for disposal and few more for filter

Hi
I got myself a 2 ton trolley jack and axle stands. Impreza has great jacking points front and back
I collect the oil and then put it in a 25 litre drum(from work) and then take oil and filters to my local tip for free.
Brakes are easy to do. Best loosen the hand brake pads off. Remove the rubber bung to do this, before taking the rear disc/drum off Front brakes are easy
