Only way is to remove the light. Split it and clean all the snot and rust out of it. And then seal it with BUTYL RUBBER
Put it all back and you good to go.

Introduction / Tyres for Subaru Forester XT 2017
« on: January 10, 2018, 12:45:00 PM »
I went 16". Never look back.
Went from a 215/55 R17 to a 215/65 R16.
Much more comfortable. Gained 9mm in ride height.
Grip from the Geolander G015 tyre is incredible. And only a slight compromise in corners when one is pushing on a bit.
Added bonus is the tyres are almost half the cost of the 17"
So what is not to like?

Could also be a bearing issue. Very noticeable when turning and accelerating

N/A Tech Chat / Re: EJ25 Rebulild vs. Import Replacement?
« on: December 01, 2017, 06:17:16 AM »
First off, have you priced an import? A rebuild including bearings and timing kit will cost R30k? OEM is usually available with a three week waiting period or so.
Only drawback for the import is one has no idea what happened to the motor, condition of rings, bearings, valves etc. no piece of mind. And if it costs the same I would go rebuild. If it is significantly less I would import as it is not a turbo model.

One should definitely let it stand a while after running before checking, I'd say about 20 min?

My XT doesn't use oil between services (yet) wonder what I'm doing wrong?!   :o
