Default Upcoming Clutch Replacement...Other Stuff to fix While In there?

1996 Legacy Brighton Wagon 5 Speed w/156k on it and the clutch is needing replacement badly. Anything else I should be replacing/checking while I have the tranny out?

Muffler gaskets? Center Bearing? Shifter bushings? That Dogbone thingy between the tranny and the engine under the hood? Motor or tranny mounts?

Yeah, I know, this could get kinda expensive, but we're gonna keep the car for the foreseeable future.

Reseal the rear cover on the right side of the motor. This is behind the flywheel. If plastic, there is a replacement metal cover, if you go this path get the new cover with new screws. Look at the piston pin cover on the left side for leaks also.

I'm a fan of taking engines out. When my clutch is due, I'll be lifting it and dealing to all my seals that look old or are leaking, do spark plugs, clean engine bay, maybe do some performance mods like new intake, check up on my split fuel rail and turbo, chuck in some group N engine mounts. that sorta ****.

Wrx Tranny,slowr than ish


If you can, just drop the tranny, and go through the backside for the clutch job. Replace the rear crank seal, and do what oldmansti said. The plastic ones are crap, subaru switched to those for a couple model years then went back to a solid aluminum piece. Make sure you have an impact driver type thingy, the type you hit with a hammer., to get the screws out. They are a #3 phillips IIRC.
