2003 Subaru Legacy Special Edition.. with some special problems.

Pin It

Well, I bought a 2003 Subaru Legacy Special Edition, 5 speed manual.  Something the kids can tear up and I don't feel bad about it. I got a decent deal on it, a couple grand below KBB.  A lot of the routine stuff has been done, 2 half shafts replaced, new brakes, cleaned and detailed.. and the best part.. Maryland state inspected.   However, it is not without problems.  The transmission is noisy.  I think its the input shaft bearing.. 99.99% sure. Drained the transmission oil and this is what I found.  Kinda crunchy huh!   Some fresh gear oil quieted things down a little.. but this is something that will need attention in the future.  New input shaft bearing and seals, might as well do the engine main seal while I am at it.. as well as throwout bearing and pilot bearing.
