  1. Not sure about the engine layout as not familiar with the XV but given the Subaru diesel plant is not the best I think the idea of a petrol conversion is a good one. Not sure how a turbo failure means crank and bearing wear? I could understand if the blades disintegrated and went through the engine there would be damage though - How bad was the failure? Before you give it to a garage for investigation why not get some of the oil and send it off for analysis - That will then tell you if you have any ring, crank / bearing wear. Its a relatively small cost before a garage starts pulling things apart.
  2. Check the diameter of the axle stub that goes into the diff
  3. I dont know that - I saw a couple of used ones on ebay but I dont know if that is just running the risk of leaks still???
  4. here is a replacement https://www.importcarparts.co.uk/parts-info?id=10622&cat=96&sub=97&sec=142&var=85&dc=0&gen=&searchKey=&searchPart=
  5. Not sure on your model but I saw a fix to a similar problem using rubber tubing that was fed down the inside of the door rubber seal to give it more resistance - can you do that?
  6. Wotcha and welcome Matt - Six stars is six stars, you would still get a wave from me πŸ™‚
  7. A good workhorse for someone - good luck with the sale
  8. We have a couple of P1 owners on the forum not sure about location in relation to the shoot though - Does it have to be a P1 or will a Type R also fit the criteria?
  9. What wont help is I found some of the cables change colour when they go through connectors - For example the cable actually going to the light in the hatch is a different colour to what goes along the length of the car. There is a connector mounted under the rear a pillar and the different wires meet there. I would start at the fuse panel and see what is there for the rear fog light. That might give you a colour lead to trace to the rear of the vehicle, you can also check for 12v when the stalk switch is triggered?
  10. The bit I have joined to is the 12v supply from the front of the car, I dont know if it comes directly from the stalk switch or if it is relay activated. The rest of it goes to the light cluster in the hatch (now redundant on mine)
  11. Wotcha and welcome Tom - Great story, feel free to get stuck in, all friendly on here. I also had an RX inbetween turbos and it never let me down - is still going strong now as the inlaws daily so not gone far - it does have a spoiler though πŸ™‚
  12. Hi - can you take some shots of your engine bay, I cannot fond any of my RX at the moment. The MAF should be on your air box next to the connecting tube to the manifold and the MAP connected to a tube but bracket mounted to your manifold MAF is item 3 on the diagram https://www.1stsubaruparts.com/v-2010-subaru-impreza--2-5i--2-5l-h4-gas/engine--air-cleaner
  13. Yes this is on the RIGHT hand side (Off / Driver side in UK) Yes you will be taking quite a few panels off unfortunately 😬
