Newbs & FAQs / New here...daughter has a 2002 Outback
« Last post by SUBSEVEN on October 21, 2018, 09:45:25 AM »
I know. I know. Another newbie looking for help! I do love subies and will have one of my own someday.

My daughter has a 2002 Outback Wagon with the rear hatch stuck. It's closed. The latch handle feels open. I asked her about it and she said that it was really stiff before and would stay in open position even with the hatch closed. Her and her boyfriend said that it's been a problem for a while. She's about to have a kid and wanted him to fix it. He's not to mechanical. Millineals!  :uglystupid2: They took it to one mechanic and he told them it needed a latch.

I did a little reading (here and here) and it seems that there is a plate that messes up too. This makes me wonder if it really does need a latch or what.

They really don't have much and can't really leave the car anywhere for long becase she carts him back and forth to work. I'll work on it.

Suspension, Brakes, Wheels, and Tires / Re: Rear brake banshee squeal

Dot the pads fit tightly in the carrier ?  I've had to do some grinding on Hawk pads to get them to move right.  I've also started using permatex for lube instead of anti-seize.  Last, have you checked that the backing plate for the e-brakes hasn't rusted some and may tag the rotor ?  I've been battling that very recently on my Legacy.

Let me know if you get it sorted, I like to keep things in mid to check.  Good Luck!

Once my VF34 arrives I'm planning on getting an E tune and need to understand this software so I don't screw things up or brick my ecu.

Best advice I can give you is that if you ever have an issue with a reflash is that you NEVER power your vehicle down, you keep pushing the flash until it works. If you turn the vehicle off, you will brick your ECU.

I was wondering if anyone would be willing to give me a walk through and show me how/what to log so I can make sure my engine is healthy before installing and tuning the new turbo.

That should be a question for your tuner. I say that because knowing the parameters to log won't do you a lot of good without understanding what they mean.

I also need to find out what codes the tuner turned off when he tuned the car back in June. But he's not answering emails and I just want to be done with my experience with him at this point.

Time to find a new tuner...

That said, if you open the map in ECUFlash or Romraider and look at the Diagnostic Trouble Codes section, you can see what was disabled.

Suspension, Brakes, Wheels, and Tires / Rear brake banshee squeal
« Last post by j13welder on September 08, 2018, 10:33:36 AM »
Hey everyone, i used to be an active member; some of you may remember me. Ive been living in watervliet but i moved to CO a few years ago so i havent posted in a while bacause i had sold my subie prior to my move. I recently got a 13í sti limited. The car is in fantastic shape but the rear brakes squeal. I figured it was an issue of cheap pads and rotors so i ordered a brand new set of brembo slotted&drilled rotors and pads. The brakes were perfect for 2 days then the squeal came back. I pulled the pads and put stop squeal on then and for two days no noise but then it came back. I spoke with a friend who is a mechanic and he said pull off the shims and lube the shit out of ever metal to metal contact point (except the pad to rotor surface). Again the noise was gon......... for 2 days!!! Its back again and worse than ever.  Im lost as to where to go next amd was hoping one of my old unysoc crew might have some suggestion.  Dave, Byron, anyone im at the end of my roap with this squealing.
