    1985 wagon gl fan blower location

    My 84 is very much the same and my blower motor is located below the glove box behind the parcel shelf.
  2. I am in the USA and have a similar problem with my 1984 GL wagon. Pretty much universal around that time frame but seems parts are really getting scarce. My needs are not immediate and I wish you the best of success.

    1984 EA81 Lifters

    As far as the switch goes, rockauto.com has 'em. I can't answer the rest of your questions though. Best of luck.

    Ignition cylinder

    Same thing I am looking into since a thief broke into my '84 GL wagon. I also found the Datsun/Subaru and found as well, an ebayer selling both the "long" and the "short" NOS OEM cylinders, which are difficult to purchase as they are automatically cancelled with a message "the seller cannot accept payments right now".
  5. After some research, I have found a similarity with the Datsun 510 assembly that shows almost precisely what I was looking for except for the mounting at this page; https://ratsun.net/topic/47412-how-to-dissasemble-datsun-510-ignition-switch-and-rekey/ Older Subarus and Datsun (pre Nissan) were alot the same, same manufacturer. I am learning alot from this and got to move my car today. Just waiting to find new parts to fix it right.
  6. Very helpful information as there is not much I have found covering this issue of pulling the lock cylinder, a prospect necessary for me to somehow accomplish as some POS broke into my car and while stealing the stereo and multiple other items, apparently finished off the lock cylinder because it is seized now. I need to unlock the steering and remove it from the street. The wheels are locked at about 30º towards the curb. Thank you, beamsbox , for showing me this post.

  8. I am searching for an exploded view of a tilt ignition lock for a 1984 GL wagon. Trying to locate retaining pin but cannot find. Another post suggested first removing the band that indicates switch position, I did. Then suggested, at 5 o'clock position for pin/screw hole, no hole or solder plug I can find.
  9. I attempted to buy; https://www.ebay.com/itm/Subaru-ignition-lock-cylinder-X6-long/302432735361?fits=Year%3A1984|Make%3ASubaru&hash=item466a655081:g:6KoAAMXQoiJRhgtN:rk:17:pf:0 and I encountered a message saying; "The seller can't accept payments right now". Looking some more tomorrow.
  10. I attempted to buy that same item and it had ended, suggested; https://www.ebay.com/itm/Subaru-ignition-lock-cylinder-X6-long/302432735361?fits=Year%3A1984|Make%3ASubaru&hash=item466a655081:g:6KoAAMXQoiJRhgtN:rk:17:pf:0 and I encountered a message saying; "The seller can't accept payments right now". Looking some more tomorrow.
  11. I am gonna try this:https://www.ebay.com/itm/Subaru-ignition-lock-cylinder-X6-short/302185124450?fits=Year%3A1984|Make%3ASubaru&hash=item465ba31262:g:TjAAAOxynapRhdL1:rk:16:pf:0#vi-ilComp
  12. 783121070 comes up eventually as a no tilt complete assembly which is not the one what I need because I have the tilt. I got burglarized and the thief mucked up my ignition, and so, I am searching for the complete assembly, which the dealer says can be ordered with footnote; no tilt, handwritten. Dead-end there. UPDATE: Changing the lock cylinder sounds the best option now. Anyone have a cylinder number? I found 783131010 at SubaruParts.com and I'd really like to verify that number. UPDATE: Glad I checked again, that latter number, 783131010, shows the switch, not the lock cylinder! Thanks and have a great day all!
  13. That has been driving me nuts. Bought the 2 new v split spacers from the dealer for the front and racket went away for a bit after install but back again. I really never found out the proper way these washers went and if no rain tomorrow, I shall rectify if needed. Thanks and Happy New Years all!

    Leone Parts

    O'REILLY'S claims to have calipers, rotors and drums for my 84. I haven't checked yet for CV joints or shafts though.
