Replace belt by loosening center nut of idler pulley, unscrewing the smaller adjusting bolt of the idler pulley until the old belt can be lifted off. Reverse procedure to install, make sure the new belt is properly centered on all 3 pulleys. Tighten until you cannot move the belt 1/4 inch up and down, then start engine, run for 10 minutes, shut off engine, and re-check belt tension. You may have to re-set the tension once or twice more until the belt settles into the pulleys. It is normal for the belt to be slightly loose when cold-- will tighten when the engine is warm.
its a good idea yes..
in with the timing belt change them at the same time
there is no such thing as timing belt bearings...... are you posibly thinking of an idler pulley? or cam bearings?
with your hands...
The 1993 Subaru Legacy was equipped with automatic seat belts to help improve passenger safety. This ensured that drivers and passengers would no longer forget to put their seat belt on.
2 plus the timing belt
Every 60,000 miles is recommended!
It goes by mileage ....100,000 miles is recommended
It would be best to change the timing belt at or before 100k miles.
Yes of course it has a EJ25 Interference engine, if the timing belt brakes the pistons and valves will hit each other.
A local library may have the repair manual.
take the belt back off and put it back on right
no timing belt
It does not have a transmission belt.
You don't "set" a timing belt. There is no adjustment, either it's right or it's not. You change a timing belt at whatever interval Subaru recommends for your Forester. --Ken
105k is the recommended time.
Belt was probably installed incorrectly. Take it back and have them check it.
Every 60,000 miles.
pretty easy, if the pulley has teeth, it goes over the top of it, if no teeth, then it goes under it.
last one we had done was £220 that was last year on a 2000 model 2.5i
Remove belt guards, loosen alternator hold-down bolt, loosen belt tensioner, remove belt, unhook power steering line clamps and lines at reservoir, remove reservoir and pump. Reinstallation is reverse of disassembly.
If you change the timing belt, I would replace water pump as well. Unless it's not working I would not replace it....
Replacing the timing belt is a complicated procedure that is impossible to describe in this small space. The engine in your Subaru is an INTERFERENCE engine. As such if they belt is installed incorrectly and you start the engine you will do damage. I suggest you purchase Haynes or Chiltons repair manual for your car. It will describe in detail with photos how to replace the cam belt.
