Hi guys, looking at buying a stolen/recovered 1997 Subaru Forester S/TB (JDM spec, EJ20G turbo) 5MT for cheap. Car is in relatively good condition, but the thieves destroyed the ignition barrel in order to steal the car.
I've attached a photo of the damage. My questions are:
Can I use a key barrel from a Legacy/Impreza? Foresters are scarce in the junkyards here, but there's plenty of Legos and Imps.
Is this a big job to replace the barrel? It looks straightforward enough, but I'm concerned there may be something I'm missing.
