Josh and Ray are both very good techs.

Not sure on what might be going on.. but check my FS thread, I've got passenger side window controls and a wiper stalk for sale. Not sure if they'll fix your problem, but your welcome to see if swapping those out will work.

I had previously applied some Calyx coating to my intake mani, but really wanted a powdercoated STi-style mani. Bought one on the side, ported it, and am happy with the results

Yeah. Cruise control. I hear/read that just some little plastic tab is prone to fall out. Anyone had this happen? What are you jamming in their to fix it?

Just got it back from the body shop. Those stupid pinch welds. All kinds of rust in in the wheel arch now gone. Now I just need to save up to do the other side.

Also does anyone have any experience with Peacock here in town? I would like to go to Cole's but he they can't take my car until Wednesday and tomorrow is my only day off for a few weeks. Or should I just figure out how to make it work with Cole's? It's some of the 90k check up I haven't got to and swapping out rotors and pads (stuff I haven't had the time to get to).

I would go to High Speed Auto over Peacock for a 90K mile service simply because High Speed had a history of working on Subarus. No idea of Peacock does or not.. better to know than hope

It's not an easy recall to do, and I was told Brown doesn't do a lot of them, so I suppose it speaks to the competence of some of thier Subaru technicians.
Yessir glad it went smoothly for you and didn't cost you a dime! Those guys love when modded subarus come in because they usually see the same thing everyday. And the service there gets there bad rep because of up front not in the shop josh and ray have helped me out a lot over the years and are very straight up guys.

Im pretty sure SOA turned the "fuel seepage recall" into an issue with all the 02-03 wax's. Daves was pretty bad off. If you pm me your vin number I can check to see if its available for your car. All that stuff also just seems electrical switches tend to go bad over time unless you have some sort of electrical short.

Almost sounds like you have a connector problem somewhere in the steering column since the cruise control and wiper controls aren't working. Power for the passenger windows is fed from the driver's door control pod, so there might be a loose connection there.

I haven't been to Cole's in ages, but they certainly had issues getting the timing belt installed correctly on my '98 Eclipse 4G63...screwed it up twice, in fact!

High Speed Auto did my clutch, and it seems okay, but they did forget to tighten the bolts for the driveshaft carrier bearing. One bolt fell out completely, and the other bolt was almost out. I've also had hydraulic issues with the clutch since it was replaced, but that might not be High Speed's fault.

So...I've had issues with almost every shop I've patronized around here. If I only had a garage so I could do the work myself...sigh.

Thanks for all the advice everyone. This (sub)forum rules. I am moving to Seattle in the spring and have been frequenting their forum a little...seems really douchey compared to here which is a bummer.

It's a pretty straight-forward service so I think a drive to Barboursville might not be worth it. I'll give Peacock a shot.

Tell us how it is. High Speed has some good mechanics, but I think the issue boils down to them being too busy to pay attention 100% of the time.

One SAMCO hose and belt tensioner later...

^ You are correct sir. Ray did a excellent job putting my power steering pump on after my screw up. The manager at the time even let my suby stay inside the garage for a few days while parts were ordered. The suby guys that know me around c'ville, know that my suby doesn't see any bad weather lol

The litmus test for covering the recall was the raw fuel smell. If you got it you KNOW IT!

I agree, Dave. The mechanic worked way into the night to get my car ready for me after the clutch replacement, and I appreciate that, but I almost wish they'd have taken their time and done it right.

It's supposed to be quite cold in the morning, so you'll know if it's fixed!

Actually, they were testing a frame replacement/repair on a Toyota Tundra V8, so they crashed one of those. They gave us a tour of their operations, and some of our GE controls operate the stuff in the crash hall, so we got to see that equipment too after the crash test. All I can say is, WOW! What a fun day!

And who own the WRB wagon there?
