Sorry if this has been posted before, but I stumbled on this while researching tie rod replacement. I already downloaded the file; it's pretty big (50Mb+).
At first glance it looks like the same manual you'd get through SOA.
Kindof a pain since all the files are broken up into individual non-descript pdf's with names like "MSA5TCD00L17482.pdf".
Whatever, I'll take it!

Sorry for digging up this old post but I'm wondering if the 2002 service manual will work for my 1998 Imp OBS with EJ22 in it.

Thanks!

pretty sure all 2002's are EJ25, so that won't work. there were also some OBS design changes in 02 as well, so some things might be off.

you can check cars101.com to find when engine/body style changes took place.

So I went to http://techinfo.suba.../html/index.jsp for my 1998 Imp OBS service manual. On the "Reference Publication" tab on top, under 1998, there are Impreza and Outback Sport. Anyone knows which one should I choose?

Thanks!

Another potential download site is:

it get's a bit wonky, so you might have to try a couple of times to get download to start.

I downloaded the 1997 - 1998 service manual but it only has the 4 dr sedan with 2.0l turbo. So it's not quite similar to my OBS.

I got annoyed by all those separate files, and for whatever reason the password didnt work so i couldnt merge them all. soi printed the thing out at work. not realizing some of the files were 500 pages long! I ended up with this!

still need to create an index page for each section but you get the idea.

They're gonna wonder why that toner cartridge ran out so fast. :lol:

And that's why service manuals are digital these days. Can you imagine a dealership having a service manual like that for every year of every vehicle they service? They would have a library the size of Texas! :lol:

fortunately i did them 2 sided, or it would probably be about 40% bigger!!

the whole room stunk of toner after about 3 hours of printing constantly. Luckily no one needed the copier/printer, 2 sided printing takes 2x as long. booo. yeah a dealer havin all cars/models books like that would suck!

wow that is crazy.

sometimes more than 2x since the printer pauses a bit to allow the ink to dry before feeding the second side.

thats true, the only delay in the printing is when the page is flipped over, so now that i think about it, its probably like 3x for double sided when you include the turnover.
