OMGHi2U My Alternator Belt Ate Itself!

Yep

Driving home from Trader Joe's tonight, my power steering went out and my battery light came on.

I had no idea how hard it was to park without power steering!

Guess I'll be walking to work the rest of the week!

Mine busted on me last year after a long night of DDing. I had to replace the alt as well because it froze which was the reason for the belt breaking.

Timing belts. *shivers* A subie tech told me it's cheaper and easier to PULL THE MOTOR when changing one in a WRX. I hope that's not true.

I just got my 60K service less than 3K ago, one would think the belts were checked.

Guess not

Yeah, it's only a $10 part, but I have to get said part, which i don't have time to do.

Good thing work is only a mile from home!

I would think it would be easier to remove the radiator then pulling the entire motor.

Long live the SOHC ej22t.

So they did your timing belt at 60K and didnt check the cheap belts? That bites.

Santa Cruz quote on timing belt R&R for a 2000 2.5RS is $970. Ouch.

Thats what I thought Re:90K. Is that what the manual claims on the wrx?

2.5RS at 60K was freaking news to me.

After searching North Ursula says "The belt in your car is scheduled for replacement at 105k" and this was a thread of a 2000 2.5RS owner. Now I'm confused.

I went in for service last time with pre-qualified financing.

Walked away without the legacy. Very close though....very close.

Well now I'm pissed. I cant believe Subaru of Santa Cruz of all places tried to convince me my timing belt needed to be done at 60K. GRRR

It wasnt bruce, but the next down the chain. Thats unexcusable.

If I was not a poor college student I would have a new Legacy. I just want my mom to get one so I can drive it over xmas break.
