What year is your Legacy and what engine does it have in it?

 

The cams come out pretty easily and should be able to be done in the car.  We can provide some more info once we know what year and engine you have.

There is a cap on the back side of the passenger side head that the cam will slide out.  The driver's side cam comes out the front and there is a piece that unbolts from the head that allows the cam to come out.

 

Before you do either of these things, the timing belt and covers have to come off as well as the valve covers and rocker assemblies.

 

Here are some pictures of installing the cams in my ej22t.
