    I'm sure some (a lot) of you have experienced this, but I did a search on here and came up empty. Now, my search of the internet for a solution to the squeaky seatbelt found endless solutions involving destruction!! The seatbelt rubs on one of the ribs of the cover trim on the B pillar. The generally accepted solution on you tube and other sources is to take the trim off and cut away the offending rib. The first rib down from the top opening. Now, after 35 years of working on cars, that solution screamed out "Bandaid" to me. If you have to cut something to fix something, 90% of the time you are missing the point. So, after viewing half a dozen Youtube videos all giving the same solution, I noticed on one that there was a bead of "stuff" on the bottom of this offending rib. Ah Ha!! I see it. This bead of "stuff" would appear to be some sort of wax type substance (factory applied? Dunno). I can do that... After removing my cover trim, should have taken pics of this for you, but too late now, I took it to my work bench and stood it upside down, with the ribs facing out. Offending rib will now be first up from the bottom. Off to the kitchen to fetch a candle. Light the candle, drip a thick bead of wax onto the offending rib, which will in essence be the underside of the rib. Fill it up till the wax starts to build over the edge of the rib, run all the way across the rib. That's it. Job done, reassemble, squeak gone. No butchery. If you have enough wax over the edge of the rib, by the time you are back down to the plastic, there will be enough wax on the belt that it will keep itself lubricated. At least it should. Cheers, KB.

    Yep, I have most of the bits now, I managed to find door cards, Rear cards, carpets and the center concole I will just need some seats and rear seats, but normal 4 door stuff should fit. Im thinking about replacing a a lot of the panels in carbon, As they need a tidy up and I like carbon!! Another thing on the project list! I didn't plan on buying it, but somehow my autobid bought it for well below what i thought it was worth! Very tidy car!

    Do you mean the wagon? I don't think there would be too much different about checking one out with the TT system, main thing would be to check both turbos do produce boost and check the change over to the second turbo. If you do get one and need any parts I have a nice pair of turbos sitting right behind me now currently being paper weights. and a few other things I can dig out if you do buy one. The good thing is the suspension struts/springs can be directly swapped out of an Impreza , depending on year might just need to swap out the top hat, but not a big deal, can open up more options for aftermarket stuff. I love the look of a nicely done BG5, Im a big wagon fan.

    I have figured out how to set the time on circa 2004 Outback/Legacy. Set the time: The Japanese Navi system sets the time via GPS settings to Japanese time. There is a setting in the GPS menu to turn off allowing GPS to set the time. Turn off this setting, then disconnect the battery and you will be able to set the time when you reconnect the battery and turn the car on. 1. Go into the Navi menu 2. Press the button on the far right – Configuration 3. Press the System button, highlighted on the bottom: 4. Scroll through three screens, then toggle the bottom option, Clock Settings, to off. I believe this is the option that turns off GPS from setting the clock: 5. Disconnect and reconnect the car battery so you can get the option to set the time: 6. You will now need to turn off the annoying voice assistant. Go to Media and press the AV settings button, bottom left: 7. Select the second tab at the top of this screen: 8. Select the Audio output settings button in the middle of this screen: 9. Set the Voice Assistant to Off

    Once I get court rulings I just send all my s***e to a debt collector and let them deal with it. The firm I use only charges me if they collect so I don't have to worry about it.

    Almost done stripping my Prelude, I've just got a fender and the two bumpers to go. I'm doing this partly because isolation, but also because I want to get started on the rust repairs. Everything else has been stripped and disassembled and I've tested every electrical circuit (except windows) and started a shopping list. I may start a build thread in the other projects section...

    Well after an hour or so with a super crappy multi-meter, I found the wires, cut up an old 3.5-RCA lead and guessed the wiring for the head uni 3.5mm remote in. And success! I feel so dirty doing it this way, but all my tools are at my workshop and I can't get there with the lock-down. so for now it's twisted and taped. Crappy video:

    Which model? What did you end up paying?

    @Andy_Mac Will let you know if we find the cable and get it hooked up. I found a video on Youtube of an aussie guy doing on a legacy/outback and he just went to the steering column and cut the wires where it comes out of there and ran them across to the head unit. So I'll probably look at the same if the plug doesn't have it there

    Won an auction a few weeks back on Trademe for a Legacy steering wheel for $1. Total $11 shipped. Only wanted it for the steering wheel controls, crazy how much some people want for those! Installed them on the STI yesterday. Still need to source a 3 wire brake switch to enable Cruise control, and need to find the Remote input cable for the Kenwood head unit then can finally have steering wheel controls running. Thankfully the plugs were the same, so they just plugged right in and bolted right up.

    Just go back to court and say I have this ruling and they haven't paid me. Make it the bailiff's problem. Any additional costs just get added to the amount due; the courts take a very dim view of people just dodging their rulings. If they're on the benefit you can even get an "attachment" where you get paid directly before they even receive the money; when they're a deadbeat that really stings, especially if you can get an aggressive payment schedule going on. Leads to fun stuff where they rip someone off so they can pay their court-ordered dues (happened on here once) and nek minnit they're going to jail, it's a fun process dealing to s***bags.

    Hey guys I'm thinking of buying doer-uppers relatively cheap, fixing them and respraying (a more of a refresh than a full on resto) and I'm interested in a gt bg legacy. I understand the code is BG5? They are probably more one of my favourite generations of legacy having that "svelte" look before Subaru went all boxy/angular. I have a bit of experience troubleshooting with my ej20g 95 wrx, but I'm guessing with the tt leggies there's less engine room and more Hoses and such, and there are Hoses from hell on the bg5s? Facelift/kouki bumpers look sweet imo, are they sought after/any other special bits that legacy people love? I am completely ignorant to legacies being completely gc/gf focused but how well will they go being 276hp/1400kg compared to the wrx of the time being 220hp/1200kg?

    Im not the best person to ask about those details, theres a few guys on here who have twins who might be able to give you help. Search the hose 10 mod as well, that helps with....something or rather, but helps anyway, have a read. For me its white, black or if you can find one the lemon? yellow ones. I think they are more rare or of course Subaru blue

    Actually, I don't think it is. I've been searching some of those photos and they look to be from what I can find, a gauge with SUBARU written on them. It might be a defi gauge, but with subaru branding however.

    I'm 99% sure they're just a Defi 2-bar gauge.

    I got a N/a ej25 rwd bg9 and i can say your axles will last you alot longer if you slide it rather than dropping the clutch from a standstill. Shock loading is what kills axles real quick. Mine felt alot more responsive going from awd auto to rwd manual so would probably be worth your time and effort to give it a go. Just remember if you snap an axle and your rear diff isnt welded, then you wont be going anywhere haha
