I think I've got him headed toward pulling the hub then pressing it.  If we get a couple warm days together, I know what I'll be doing and will report back.

My Dad picked up another forester (2003), it has a bad rear wheel bearing.  AFIK, these are pressed in bearings.  I'm trying to talk him into pulling the hub to replace the bearing, he's hoping to not pull the hub and do it in car.

Is one way better than another ?

I don't know if it's better, but being a McPherson strut, I'd try to pull the hub.  It should make it easier to get the damn bearing out, no?

Scooby Chat / Way to Check Warranty Status?

Hey All.

So Im considering trading in the Impreza for a 2014 Forester with the MT.  Is there a way for me to see what sorta warranty is still on the Forester?  Its not at a Subaru dealership, and Im just curious if its still possible to get the Added Security put on there, or if its part of the extended warranty on oil consumption since it falls in the year range where they were still fixing that sorta stuff.... 

I have also heard that the shifter might be less than useful, any thoughts on the MT in the Forester in general?

Thanks Fred.  I thought it was only 8 years, 80k for some reason, good to know I have some more time. 

For now it looks like all is well.  No code has come back, and when watching my downstream O2 sensor it stays pretty constant around .7 volts.  Long term fuel trim is a little negative, but everything seems to be running alright.  Put some Techron in my latest tank and will run that through just because  Otherwise fingers crossed that it was just an air leak.

Thanks for the reassurance!  I cleaned the MAF, and tightened all of the connections yesterday, and cleared the code this morning before the drive in.  No return of the CEL, but its only been one drive cycle. 

Something did smell a little burn-y when I got out of my car at the office, so Ill have to dig into that a little bit more to make sure something bad isnt going on.  Fingers crossed that Im not signing myself up for a lot of wrenching in the next few weeks....
