It took more time to find the clip than to install the box! 15 min. tops!
I got mine used from an Ebay JY sale. Got Ebay remotes too.
It was a unclip the old box undo the mounting nut, install the new box, reclip, put nut back and tighten, install for me.
It has been my experience that, with Subarus, all options are pre-wired and all you have to do is locate the place and the wires and your set.
82 SubaruHummer, no options!

I found a guy on eBay who sells only the remote cases along with a battery. You just move over the circuit board to the new case and..... B I N G O....a new remote. No reprogramming needed. I didn't bid on Ebay for the cases but I just dealt with him directly. I'll have to get you his web site or e-mail address.
Along the same lines, my remotes are either dead or dying. Plastic bits inside have broken and they now require (the one that works) a good smack sometimes to get the doors to lock/unlock. Yes I've replaced the batteries. Is there an inexpensive way to replace the remotes? For what the dealer wants, I might as well just have a nice alarm system installed.

I have a 97 OB and I was told by the dealer that they are NOT prewired for keyless entry. It was going to cost a pretty penny to do it. I believe the prewiring started in 98. I've heard conficting info on this, but I've never heard anyone come back and tell me that my info is wrong... so...
I ended up adding a Viper Remote Start / Alarm / Keyless entry for what the dealer told me keyless entry alone would be.
