I recently replaced the water pump on my 2000, and they should be the same. The water pump is driven by the timing belt and you replace them both at the same time. Only down side, and it's a BIG down side, is that you have to remove the front engine pulley that is attached with a bolt torqued to 135 foot-pounds. There is a special tool (we made one) necessary to hold this pulley still so that you can loosen the bolt. Normal hand tools that you may have will not do the job. I would recommend taking your Forester to someone who has done the job before. --Ken

How do you replace wiper blades on a 1998 Subaru Forester?

This may sound like a smart-alec answer, but I am serious. Take your Forester to the auto parts store. Tell them you want the blades replaced. They will do it for you for the cost of the blades. No extra charge, at least in my experience. I changed my own timing belt and water pump, but the wipers I leave to the experts! -Ken
