If you are in a high humidity area, I would: Coat the part in WD-40 (at least pieces which are made of or have exposed metal pieces). Put them into a large Zip Lock Style Vacuum Storage bag along with ~six oxygen absorbers Vacuum out the storage bag Place bag on the shelf and leave it alone. You may want to put something around the part so any sharp ...

I think this points at the thermostat being bad. The reason I go in this direction is due to there being no heat coming from the heater vents. I'm not sure if Subaru has it this way, but many heating systems in cars only divert coolant from exterior of the motor to the heater core. If the thermostat is not allowing (much or) any coolant through, you'll only ...

How old is the battery (if it has a date stamped on it)? If it is over five years old, I'd replace it as a maintenance item. Remember too, a healthy battery should actually be over 13vdc at rest and fully charged. If your battery was only reading 12vdc, this is an indication of a weak battery to me. It may have a bad cell and accumulate what I call a surface ...

Your question is subjective, but I can share some of my own experience in working with Subarus. The difficulty level of working on these engines will be defined by your mechanical ability and the type of work you plan on doing. Routine maintenance is fairly easy. The engine bay is easy to get around in my opinion, but it may take some getting used to. ...

If the other speakers are working and you've confirmed a valid connection to the speaker in question (at the harness), then it is likely either the speaker is dead or the wiring between the harness and the speaker is interrupted somewhere. In which case the best place to use a multimeter would be at the speaker itself. It is a simple task to remove the door ...

Unfortunately there isn't a lot you can do without taking the door panel off, and checking the speaker's condition directly. You can however check if the speaker is getting 12 volts from your wiring harness. Here is a link to what hopefully looks like your wiring harness in your Impreza. Take the multimeter, make sure the cords are placed in V and COM and ...
