Finaly fitted speed sensor.
OK someone asked me to post up a how too for replacing the speed sensor, believe me it is a very simple job that took me no more than 30 mins.
Tools and equipment for the for the job:
Replacement speed sensor, Part # 85082AE000
12mm socket and ratchet (or 12mm spanner if you have none of them)
Large long slotted (flat head) screw driver
Bull nose pliers.
1) If like me you have custom settings on your radio I would suggest making a note of all the settings. If you follow Subaru guidelines, also the fact that you are replacing a sensor, you need to remove the negative cable from the battery.
2) Removing the intercooler, far simpler than you imagine. Looking at my picture you will see various coloured arrows.
White arrows = The 12mm bolts either side of the intercooler that you need to remove.
Yellow arrows = Hoses that need to be pulled off, Mine didn’t give me any issue as I have removed them in the past but if they are stuck, try using a little bit of very hot water and twisting them, giving it a little bit of elbow grease.
Blue arrows = Jubilee hose clamps that need to be loosened off
Green arrow = Small pipe from the back of your BOV, also if you running the oem you will need to remove the large recirculating pipe from the front of the bov. (As you can see mine is already disconnected and blanked off.)
Orange arrow= Is the direction to remove the intercooler, you may have to wiggle it around just to free of any sticking pipes but I found it easier to push on the front of the bov towards the bulk head this then frees it from the inlet and turbo pipes, you can then begin to tilt it from the top upwards (much easier without the strut brace) but still manageable to remove the unit with out the need to remove anything else.
3) You can now see the sensor (hi lighted by blue arrow)
4) Remove the connector, squeeze in the little tab and pull, may require the use of some pliers here.
5) Now my sensor was rather stiff so I needed to use pliers, turning anti clockwise about 4-5 turns is all, and pulled it out.
6) Before fitting the new unit compare them making sure they are correct and make sure the hole it came from is free from debris. Make sure the little flat pin of the sensor is in line with the slot in the gearbox push new one in place and tighten, remember if you look at the thread its only about 4-5 turns required.
7) Plug back on sensor, refit and secure the intercooler making sure all jubilee clips are tight, and pipe work all reconnected.
8) Reconnect battery negative cable.
Job done, Start the car and let idle for 10 mins, (while your resetting your clock and radio) then test drive.
