This Thread is a Continuation from This one ~► Here,
which have more Background information regarding the Timing Belts.
I Don't want to Open a Can of Worms asking if I Should let the plastic covers off or reinstall them. I have read for years, opinions of people that Preffer them on and other people that Preffer them off, each one with their own reasons.
I Did the Last Timing belt service on my BumbleBeast in Year 2009, when I Found This:
Then I obtained The New timing Belts + new Covers at the Local Subaru Dealer:
However the new covers' set came incomplete and
I decided to let the Timing belts' covers off
So, the reason of this thread, are this two Questions regarding Coverless Belts:
► In the case I have a Power Steerin' failure that spills out the fluid, or a Water pump failure that spills out the coolant, Will the Timing Belts Slip?
► Also, if I Let my Subie unused for some months (I Plan to Travel to my Hometown to my Parents' home for Vacation) Could the Timing Belts be Damaged by Rodents or insects?
► I Edited certain posts of this thread, to change their text colour, from Yellow (used when the Forum's Background was Charcoal) to Blue.
