Finally changed the cabin filter. It's a giant pain in the ass on a legacy.



Also re did my jazzy auxiliary input and hooked it up to the nav screen so we can watch videos in the car now.

Decided to man up and open the transmission.

Thrust plate fell out of the input shaft from what appears as improper assembly. Luckily no major damage was done. Essentially what happened is it left a large space behind 4th gear. So as the shift fork moved the slider towards 4th, instead of meshing with the synchro and engaging, it was just pushing the gear away into the gap left by the thrust plate.





I found the 2 parts of the thrust plate in the case before I even pulled the clusters out of the box. The pieces fell down to the bottom of the transmission case and stuck to the magnetic drain bolt. Had they got tangled up in the gearset it could have been a disaster.





Also need to replace the 5th gear synchro.
