News 2015 wrx/sti Gas Lid Issue Resolution

On some 2015 wrx/sti's the gas lid will not pop open very far when you pull the lever. Subaru has now issued a tech bulletin (#09-57-14) so if you take it to the dealer they will order you a new kit which will take care of the issue. FYI

so they told me I have to make an appt and leave the car with them for at least an hour and a half for them to evaluate the car to see if it in fact needs the new lid kit. seriously? It takes 3 and a half seconds to look at it and say 'yep, it doesn't open'.

can anyone tell me if for these TSBs, is that reasonable for them to have to examine the car for over an hour? Or is it like a recall, where they are just supposed to do it if you car fits the criteria?

the appointment i have to make is not to fix it, it's to see IF it needs the repair. i'll have to bring it back in after they order and receive the parts. I just want to know if other people are having to do the same thing.

I was in for a routine oil change and showed the service writer that my door didn't open until I had given lever a few pulls. No problem she said and they took care of it right there.

I can't see how they need an hour and a half to pull the gas lever.

I went to my dealer to have this fixed. The RO says they "Lubed the door". Even after I told them that there is a TSB. They denied the existence of said TSB. Thank you for the number. Hopefully I don't have to get SOA involved. Why wouldn't they just recognize the TSB and fix it the legitimate way?

they likely need you to plan for that amount of time for two reasons. one its normally SOP to book any diagnostic appointment for 1 hour and two, because they have other appointments; can't guarantee they can get you in as soon as you drop off or always have a tech run to the parking lot and check everyone's car.

even if its a 3 second inspection, who knows maybe they haven't seen any cars yet and aren't familiar with it.
