Re: 1992 Legacy Sun Roof control box relay issue

Update went thru the process on the wanted reply .

Plenty of relay clicks but no sign of sun roof moving open close etc.
Now its back to the emergency handle operation.

Re: 20 years of Legacy Central

I enjoy the forum esp. the archive folder, its still a great resource packed full of facts and real life experiences of running an older model Legacy. I'm into my 70's these days and still believe if someone made it I can repair/fix it. In England there are less than 20 BC BF Legacy's left on the ro...

Re: 1992 Legacy BC Heater Core replacement part

Josh, thanks again for your advice & comments , I'm faced with a task I don't relish .
I wanted to check what the access was like if I could lift the old heater core out of the unit by undoing the two metal pipes , none of the UK forum guys have a used heater core unit off the car.

Before I travel to see another 1992 S2 Legacy this example hasn't been driven for 19 years, been in stored in garage. The only visible rust is on the front wings & at the rear of the roof, rear arches appear to be OK. I wanted views as to whether the engine can be saved given lack of use - it has oi...

On the UK Legacy forum a few of the members commented about this one, overall the view being the car was probably another replica, the VIN plate wasn't right, the number plate related to Mcrae's Impreza don't mention the asking £££!

Re: 1992 Legacy Sun Roof control box relay issue

Good advice, the manufacturer OMRON sell relays in boxes of 600 but they are the modern spade connection, I'm searching for an equivalent relay that can do the job and fit onto the board. I'll let the forum know how I get on.

1992 Legacy Sun Roof control box relay issue

My 1992 Legacy Turbo has a factory electric sun roof, the SR switch operates fine, the wiring to the switch promotes a click from the control box next to the motor, the motor runs off the vehicle. When I stripped the control box to clean relay contacts the result was a louder click but still no roof...

Re: 1992 Legacy replacement a/c condensor dryers - suggestio

Josh, Good advice - get the fittings made up and use another drier from older Legacy.
The number of a/c specialists for Subaru a/c parts are few & far between in UK.
Once finished I'll let the forum know.
