  1. 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.
  2. Thanks for the information Siluro, should be able to work it out from this.
  3. As the titles says really, I need to remove the lower dash trim drivers side on my Hawkeye WRX and can't find a video online showing how its done Thanks in advance for any help or advice it very much appreciated
  4. I've just discovered this exhaust is made by Toyosports, aka questionable quality, putting it politely. It won't be getting fitted. Thanks for the help any way, very much appreciated 👍
  5. Not heard anything about flexi being a problem, could you elaborate a little please.... Do I need to start a new thread 😵
  6. Thanks for both reply's Sorry should of said it's a 07 WRX Hawkeye. Everything's fine with the cat, the down pipe and sports cat where a bargin off ebay, only paid £77. Had been looking at a Cobra one at £430 so just bought it on impulse really. I've only had the Hawkeye 9 months, I am planning on getting a remap done but was thinking after a couple of MOT's, get a feel for the car first and root out any niggles if there are any. Not really wanting any gains, guessing any would be negligible anyway, as my insurer doesn't even charge for changes to the exhaust, another reason I bought it. Bottom line is, if I fitted it it'd have to go on a dyno/rolling road, Can anyone recommend one in west Yorkshire, only 4WD one seems to be RS tuning in Leeds. If I wait to fit it, whats the best way to store the downpipe for 18 months?
  7. As the title says, I have a down pipe with sports cat to fit (I already have a cat back fitted), my main worry is will it over boost and damage the engine if I don't get it remapped. I know it's advisable if fitting a full de-cat, but not sure about high flow cat. Thanks for any advice, its greatly appreciated
  8. Hi and thanks for reading. My problem is as follows. I have a 2007 Impreza WRX Hawkeye (I know this is for Forester's) and I'm trying to add a few mod cons, with my current project being steering wheel controls, which I have to start from scratch. I've bought a nice 2007 Forester Momo wheel from ebay with the required buttons which I'm wanting to connect to a Pioneer head unit using a 3.5mm jack, with a CTMULTILEAD.2 Universal Stalk Steering Control. I've identified the wires connecting to the audio controls on the wheel. The black wire is used to earth the system to a point on the back of the air bag. After this I'm uncertain and beginning to guess, I think the red and blue are power, if this is the case where can I tap in to get some current or will the MULTILEAD use the 3.5mm jack to power the SW buttons like headphone controls? This leaves the orange/silver and white/silver wires on the wheel, looking at the MULTILEAD it requires 3 wires either; purple, green and orange or keys 1, 2 and GND. If I'm right GND will connect to the black ground wire, orange/silver will connect to key 1 and white/silver (or reversed) to key 2 and the power from the 3.5 mm jack. If I'm wrong, can anyone advise me of what to do or what tool I may need to find out what each wire actually does? Thanks in advance for any advice, it's greatly appreciated
  9. So I'm looking at fitting some HT Autos bumper lips to my hawkeye. After much searching I can only find pictures of this angle, does anybody have these fitted and has pictures of what they look like from the rear? If possible ones that haven't been lowered, I'm finding it strange that no-ones posted pic's of them as they seem a cheap and potentially decent mod. Thanks for reading
  10. Thanks for the responses, much appreciated. Really like the ramps stevief, even more impressed with the motor, loving the 340R in that colour
  11. As the title says, I need some ramps for oil changes and the like, I brought some originally and used them for swapping the exhaust and they where great but there's no chance I'd get onto them with the front end, suddenly realised just how low the front really is (ended my interest in a STI front splitter lets say) coupled with the wheels being quiet far back as well. I have thought of bodging some wooden planks to ease the gradient but would much prefer something more substantial and not risk falling off them and ripping the front bumper off or worse. Anyway I thought I'd ask if anyone else has had this problem and which ramps or what ever method you may have used. As always thanks in advance for any help or advice
  12. Thanks for responding, much appreciated. You've confirmed what I suspected, be taking it back in tomorrow, wonder if they'll try and charge me
  13. As the title says, the other day I noticed the steering wheel was off centre, slightly right, since earlier this week I've had a driveshaft replaced on the drivers side, is it possible that they've not aligned it properly? I've read that it's most likely a alignment issue and not a steering wheel one, something to do with the wheel toe, but again I'm just quoting another thread. Anyway should I take it back to be looked at? And ask them to do the job properly? Or it isn't anything to do with the driveshaftI and I should be a little more observant in the future. Conversely I have also had new wheels fitted this week but that was pretty much like for like, I swapped my 07 Hawkeye standard 17 inch 7 spoke with 04 blob WRX 5 spoke 17 inch. Could this be the cause? Thanks in advance for any help or advice its greatly appreciated
  14. So I'm really enjoying my new Impreza WRX, but I'm really missing the steering wheel controls from my old car. I've been scanning ebay and found a 08 Forester wheel with controls on, it looks like the air-bag would fit in the space and there's a video on you tube that makes it look like quiet simple, swapping the frame which holds the bag in place is really all that's required because Subaru place the screw holes in the same place. Has anyone done this mod? Is it really as easy as the video made out? I won't be attempting it myself, I don't want a air-bag in the face if it goes wrong. Thanks in advance for any advice, it much appreciated
  15. Thanks for the response, I think you were right straight away, most likely had hub and drive shaft replaced. I'm guessing it was changed by someone who knew their stuff though, they've swapped the hub from Hawkeye to Blob/Bug changing the ABS pick up but must have known that the other end of the shaft had a female connection and that the STI version drive shaft would work perfectly with that setup. In a attempt to save cash? A follow up question would both sides have been done at the same time? If they aren't does that need looking into? Again any reply greatly appreciated
