So I've got to get into changing the timing belt. Not really an issue except I've never had to remove a crank bolt on an automatic. I've checked all over the web. Do I really have to jam something in the flywheel teeth? I've heard horror stories about breaking them that way. Worst case to get it off, Breaker bar resting on ground and tap starter, but to get it back on? Any wise tips? Wish I could just go at it like the others and drop it in 5th gear. *sigh* All the other autos I've changed timing belts on were beat to the point of not having a timing cover at all so I didn't have to remove it lol.

EDIT: Its a '96 2.2L SOHC 16v EJ22, non-interference according to Subaru, but I think they are all pretty close anyway.

Sadly I never had to remove that part on either of my Subarus (both were autos) but since the transmission is a 4EAT it's too bad you can't just engage the cruise control to do it. That transmission has a lockup torque converter.

Impact guns make everything easier. Wish I had one.

I agree on the starter trick, I've always done that with a breaker bar wedged against the ground on my cars.

There are many tricks. I had to have my friend who is an expert with Subaru help me change the belt, I wouldn't dare touch it. We actually put my car in 3rd gear with me slamming on the brakes for him to pull it off with a breaker bar. We would of used a air tool since I had my ac delete and no radiator installed at the moment but I don't have any air tools sadly..

Yeah thats basically how I did the Z and Xterra. Put it in 5th with the emergency brake on and it won't budge a single mm. Want air tools so bad but a good compressor cost more than my car.
