    Post this question in the "Old Generation". You will get more views/responses there. Good luck, Sam
  2. As far as I remember you are correct. Either the throttle body needs to be removed or the AC compressor. But if you unplug the connector you can test in place. There is a testing procedure in the FSM Good luck, Sam
  3. A year and a half old thread.
  4. 2010 Forester with 116, 000 miles. Is it possible to replace just a dust boot for the sway bar links? Or should I just wait for the links to fail completely and then replace the entire link? Thanks for looking, Sam

    I guess you get no codes? TPS may be acting up. Could be a poor contact at the TPS connector. How about the regular stuff: distributor, wires? Good luck, Sam

    Ac delete info?

    Are you going to save the freon if you have any?
  7. I drive the 2010 Forester since new. I have now 11500 miles on it. At about 80000 I replaced an alternator belt. At 100000 miles I installed a new O2 sensor. That is all. Good car.
  8. I believe you need to drive a mile or two for the system to reset itself. And, of course, one of the sensor's battery may be dead as well. Good luck,
  9. There is also a sensor on top of the AC pulley that is held by one 10 mm bolt (14 mm head) and one 6mm bolt (10 mm head). Make sure the sensor is as close to the pulley as possible. Good luck, Sam
  10. No regulators or anything. The inlet hose had to be rerouted. I bought an extra hose and routed it as a letter "S". I also bought a 2 and 1/4 inch U-bolt and drilled two extra holes in the original bracket. Shoved a cork under the pump to cushion it. That was it. My main concern was the lack of barbs on the pump's tubes. I was afraid that the hose may slide off. Checked it yesterday. Everything looks fine.

    For the wires I would just repair them. You mentioned that you have a new distributor. Are you sure you installed it correctly? Good luck, Sam
