but in the eclipse you practiaclly have to pull the motor. It's definietly not an easy job. On Subaru's you have full access to the timing belt once you remove the radiator fans, accessory belts, crank pulley, a/c belt tensionor and the timing belt covers.

I just got a coupon in the mail from John Marzolf for a timing belt job. It was good for the labor and t-belt. I know on my Galant, you had to buy a new hydraulic tensioner and balance shaft belts were also a good idea. Dunno what else is under the cover on the flat motors. They will check the water pump and replace it for the cost of the parts if need be.

The coupon price was $250 for the whole shebang. I could hook you up as I wont be needing a new t-belt for about another 98,000 miles and some change. I'll have to look at it again and make sure it doesnt say my name on it or something.

They are in Pueblo, but much better than Heuberger IMHO.

Exclamation Suggestion....

Parts are cheap....I suggest you consider replacing the waterpump and front crank seal. If the area around your cam seals are showing ANY oily dampness or dust collection, do them as well. Be smart- if you are going to PAY for the surgery, do everything you can to keep 'em from opening her up again before the next belt change. If a seal fails AFTER the new belts are installed, you'll be buying another set of belts AND paying for poor foresight...

Subaruparts.com prices:
W/P=50.36
W/P gasket=1.85
W/P seal(for t-stat)=2.15
Crank seal=3.68
Camseals=38.00 (I think the $38 is right...)

Man, I wish I still had my shop and tools. Subies are the easiest cars to do routine maintenance on....

Question

Wow, this is an old post. My only question is why? It's good info though, and I think I'll probably be doing this soon, so knowing to check the W/P is good info. Thanks. But WHY?

Brian,
I think the logic behind it is that if and when you end up doing your timing belt you'll have to take off 99% of all this stuff again to do the water pump. Make sense?

No ***** Mark , I guess the question came off wrong. Why is the post being revived after all this time? The logic about the W/P was explained in the previous post.
