Yeah, you don't even have to take the hub off like you do on a lot of cars. There are notches in the plate that holds the studs so you can get one in behind it and angle it just right to go in. You'll probably want to do something like put an old junky crescent wrench around the stud, and then drive the nut on with it pressing against the wrench to prevent it from damaging the hub. You don't need to pull it all the way tight, just enough that it won't slip back out and cause a massive headache when you're trying to put the rotor or wheel back on. Once you tighten the lugnuts properly with the wheel on it'll pull it all the way in.

Good thing I came here beforehand. Just watched a video that shows the backside. They're M12 - 1.25, but what length...

They're something around 3". I just went to the autozone or oreilly website or whatever and looked up wheel studs for the 2012 Impreza and the ones they listed were right. Might be able to find more info by looking around rockauto for parts numbers and then researching.

Thanks again! Not sure what gave me the idea this couldn't be done. Or that it's seemingly so common.

Found the stud on Oreily's website and it looks like they have them in stores. Picked up a tool to help with pulling the stud through vice the "traditional" washer/nut combo I've seen videos of.

I'm grateful that they put on hubs that allow you to replace the studs without removing it. It seems some vehicles come with hubs where you have to take the entire hub off to replace the studs. That would be a ridiculous unnecessary nightmare.

Did a stud a few months ago. I was the last to torque the lug nuts and did so to spec.

The nut let go of the wheel easily enough, then locked up on the way out somehow, trashing the stud.

Seems to be a semi-common occurrence on Subarus.

I took the opportunity to add locking nuts.

Is the rear wiper speed sensitive? Maybe I'm just imagining it because everything seems faster when you're on the highway, but I swear the rear wiper on the intermittent speed is slower when you're driving slowly or stationary, and faster when you're at highway speed.

I think you're imagining it.

It's probable, sitting there in the garage or parked wherever 5 seconds seems like a long time, and driving it goes by a lot faster and it's not like I'm going to stare at my rear wiper to time it while driving on the freeway.

Can someone please let me know if a 14 Crosstrek strut bar will fit my 2015 subaru impreza. I have used the search feature and have come up short. Can someone please advise?

also i tried to start a new post regarding this matter but before you start a new post it automatically generates some post based on your title. I read through the post but it didn't apply to me but, still the box where I type my post is blocked out in gray and doesn't allow me to type. How do I get passed this?
