  5. Bob Rawle does have a great reputation - shame your investments have not given you a proper return - but I know that feeling
  6. eBay here an example for 1 key sigma 30 type alarm > https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Repair-Service-For-1-button-Remote-Key-Fob-Forester-Impreza-Legacy-Outback/192366029811?hash=item2cc9e8abf3:g:6lgAAOSwZB9aDW57 ** Do check your keyfob matches service you buy ** If you on the sigma alarm be sure you have known working 4 digit pin code to manually control alarm via keypad . ** If you don't have a PIN you can easily reset PIN while have a working remote ** With a working remote or working PIN these alarms easy deal with at low cost, break all the keyfobs and have no working PIN and cost esculate as does hassle/stress . Also realise it easy buy a used good keyfob and put circuit board into your keyfob housing and program it to alram module (as long as have a working PIN or 1 working keyfob) should yours be none repairable .. Be proactive now for the easy fix/solutions and easy life .... too many people ignore alarm issues until it too late ...
  7. could be your MAF - that operates lower in the rev range until the MAP takes over Any error codes??
  8. A slightly belated Wotcha and welcome - as you have seen already plenty of Fozzie experience on here so feel free to set up a build thread and keep a track of your progress 👍

  11. Hey I have recently bought a Subaru Impreza GX Sport Wagon and sometimes when I put it in 4th gear it grinds while driving, I am just wondering if this could be the gear box failing or does the car need more transmission fluid? I always check that my foot is fully on the clutch when changing gear. Any help is much appreciated, Thanks.
  12. Thanks. Ok, that is good to know. I am guessing they are probably a bit stronger than the steel arms too? I like saving money, In total was somewhere under £200 for parts. And many hours spent switching bits over and checking them, but I enjoy that so don't mind it. I am planning to do nearly all of the work this car needs myself. Cheaper, good fun and interesting. I have a good collection of decent tools, and happy to buy more as I need. I do plan on making a general build thread for this car sometime very soon, as I plan on keeping it around for a while and inevitably upgrading things sometime. Those links will prove very helpful, thanks.
  13. He sure does but the Toyota seems to have lit a fire underneath him. Was the Ford that slow? Meek has the skills and was superfast but got dropped. Probably almost unbeatable if he could finish. He took the Colin mentality too far I suppose, shame. Evan's Dad must be so proud but also think damn he has out done me, lol. I nice dilemma to be in I suppose.
  14. You should get coolant out of that bleed, with engine off bleed open fill coolant to top should push air out if that dont work try having it vacuum bled
  15. Just wanted to follow up just in case anyone looks at this thread with the same problem. It's actually a really easy job, there're 3 screws to undo, the first is on the side of the dash and can only be accessed when the door is open, it's a plastic screw and pops out with little effort, it's the only screw there so you can't miss it. The other two are metal, the first is located right next to the bonnet release catch and the last is at the other side of the trim at the bottom right next to the centre console, a light would be good to locate and line it up. After that just give it a little tug (can I say that the not bring attention to it?) and it just drops down, don't worry about the wires they're all long enough to let it drop to the floor and that's it. Hope someone in the future might find this useful.
  16. Could be dodgy earths - rusted terminations etc

  18. I think with oil coolers they are all much of a muchness. Ok so perhaps the hoses are better quality on a Named make but the oil cooler itself will be of similar quality. As long as it has a thermos switch to allow the oil to get to temperature, I think any cooler can only be beneficial to a performance car. Been on the spanners this afternoon. All fitted and lock wired
  19. Hey I might be thick but isn't this topic "Items for Sale"?!?!?!?!? But I won't resort to abuse
  20. Wow No I am NOT thick, but thank you for you Remarks. Noted
  21. basically lot of garages simply won't be doing enough power steering repairs have knowledge or equipment test it easily or in sensible time frame so part swap on educated guess tends be preferred method and I had do that a few times on systems that didn't attach to test gauges or test cost exceeds part swap cost . most time it pump on subarus and as the pump known failure it not a great buy as a used part, You can get overhaul kit for the pumps and that route I go if internal housing surfaces decent enough . Recon pumps or low cost pattern part are bit of gamble too these days as everything about lowest cost manufacture to enable cheap retail baiting on products hardly fit for purpose . If you supply the parts to mechanic then not really fully his fault but if he diagnosed as pump and supplied pump then he got put mess right . One of the biggest issues we have in trade today is part quality, while I use a lot of used genuine parts in lot of cases power steering is area need extra care/checks ... Hopefully garage will help the OP out and get issue resolved minimal fuss ! ....
  22. Thanks for your help. Really appreciated.
