The circulation pump on my car that's for the supercharger and intercooler went out, again. So this time I got a Prius inverter cooler pump to install in place of the type I've been using. Got it for $22 and it came with a pigtail. The Prius pump has a brushless motor and should last a long time. The hose ports are the same size, it's the same length, but thinner than the one I've been using making mounting it easy.

Back to cooler running.

Installed the new headlamps and new bulbs last night. Made some up/down adjustments and now need to adjust left/right. Right now they point towards the middle of the lane; my lane, that is.

So today I did some preventive maintenance..... Replaced my front wheel bearings with Timken bearings and seals. The Timken inner seal doesn't have a large "double" lip like the OEM Subaru Seal but no biggie. I was able to use my 20 ton HF press again and everything went pretty well.

I inspected my ball joints, tie rod ends, and drive axles at the same time and all looked good so I just buttoned everything up.

I marked the camber bolt on the strut before I removed it so I wouldn't have to get an alignment after. At 189,000 miles I figure its good preventive maintenance and in fact the passenger bearing was spinning pretty fast and didn't seem like it had much grease left so maybe it would have bit the dust in the next year. Better to do it now then take a chance that I have to do all the work in the 110 degree heat of the Phoenix summer!!!!!!!

Replaced my key fob with (I think ) an OEM one.

You really had to mash the old one to get it to unlock.

New fob has a much rougher finish (Old one has seen 17 years of use!) and a nice resistance when pushing the buttons.

Super easy to program as well.

This weekend...sway bar end links and bushings!

@BiggFella Tilghman Looks good. Now you'll have to do the rest of the dash.

Yesterday, I spent 7.5 hours cleaning the VDC. I disassembled paneling and door trims, parts of the dash and center console. All the door jams and rocker panels are white again. Carpet got a good scrubbing. No more dirt under the switches and paneling. The burlwood dash panels shine again. The headliner was a PITA, but the hemp towel I used was a great help. Those things pick up everything. You'd be surprised how much dirt the headliner catches. I went through 4 2 gallon buckets of Dawn and water just on the interior. Then used Meguiar's Leather cleaner on the seats and paneling.

This is why the car doesn't look like it has 215k miles on it. Once a year thorough cleaning.

Thank you sir, I am considering ideas about the rest of the dash. Starting to get the typical rot above the glovebox so I'm gonna tackle that next. With motivation from cars like yours, I just wanna keep her pretty and purring for a long time to come

Changed the bulbs in my dash today, nobody mentioned in the countless forums I read that until you reconnect the hazard switch the turn indicators donít work. Spent 30 minutes cussing trying to figure out why they werenít working...

Also installed a new hood prop grommet so now my hood prop wonít fall out anymore.

Been there done that, pulled the cluster for some work. Slammed it back in just in time to pick wifey up from work. Pull out into traffic no indicators. ****. Wasnít until the following morning I was able to look at it and lonand behold I neglected to plug in the hazard switch.

Face palm.
