Fixing

Sorry I have not post for 2 days. I’ve been busy fixing & other stuff. I’ll blog about one of the thing I was doing in that 2 days.

My poor car (’00 Impreza 2.5RS), few of exhaust header bolts threads stripped and sadly I haven’t fix it… til now. Guy I met on local Subaru forum was very kind to help with this task.

Drove about an hr to get to the guy’s shop and lifted my car up on the lift.

As you can see above, my exhaust is pretty easy to come off. 6 bolts holding the exhaust header, 3 bushing holding the muffler and 1 bushing holding axle back area.
