2015 WRX Front Bumper Removal (Australia)

Postby deza992450 » Wed Aug 23, 2017 4:21 pm

Hi

Own a 2015 WRX, just wondering if someone can provide the steps they took to remove the front bumper, specifically the headlight washers? this is the part i'm stuck on as i'm not sure if force is needed to pull them straight out, subaru tell me to just pull the bumper off and they will slide out with it? i've tried this, but they get to a certain point and seem stuck, so not wanting to break anything haven't gone further. I've just been quoted for the WRX service manual, for a list price of $2121.13 :thumbsdow: what a joke!!. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Cheers for that reply, but that is the USDM (American) version of the manual and not the JDM version (Australian), the Americans don't get the headlight washers as stock standard, and as a note, they also don't get the rear centre foglight as stock, actually, there is quite a bit they don't get as stock standard compared to us, guess we are lucky, even with a base model of the WRX.

Got a phone call today from my local dealer, they told me to come in and they'll provide print outs of any pages of the manual I may require, so i'm going to take that approach to see what the Australian version of the manual says in order to correctly remove the bumper.

Thanks.
