thanks Neil, I bought the Haynes Legacy manual which has been useful for most stuff but I REALLY need a wiring diagram.
I've been waiting for the local dealer to get back to me for about a month now with regular pestering, still no joy...
Over the weekend I noticed that Scoobysport has added "WRX/STi Service manuals" to their website price list, so on monday I phoned them and asked if they had one for a MY94 STi, they said they did and I had one ordered and it arrived through the post this morning.
The one they sent me is surprisingly less technical than the title "WRX/STi Service manual" had suggested, and the cover on the delicately bound A5 booklet actually reads "Impreza Owners manual" with a little Japanese flag in the corner. It doesent state which years it covers, but all the interior diagrams show the early style dash (MY92-96 I think)
I was slightly dissapointed to see that the bulk of the book is made up of pages and pages of very clear diagrams showing you things like -how to unlock the door -how to operate the hand brake,how to operate the steering toggles + the switches, how to pull down the sunvisor or open the glove box, how to move the seats back and forwards or pull out the drinks tray out. Frankly, the kind of stuff you know after a couple of days of owning an imported WRX/Sti any way, with no schematics or cross-sections of anything as i had hoped
There is some usefull information, like some of the more in depth Addzest headunit functions, how to take lights out, fuse and circuit locations(not schematics just sketches of the fusebox)some info on different kinds of diffs fitted to these Imprezas. There is a small section at the end called "vehicle maintanence" which contains a service schedual and basic fluid/filter services and damage checklists.
I am glad i bought it as any published info on these mysterious imports is like gold, but it is very much an operators manual.
ndouglass is right. The chiltons manual does have wiring schematics in it. Halford's sell them for about £12-£15...worth buying for the little niggly tweaks us boys get up to. Not as much detail as I would like though .
Come on HAYNES....publish a manual for us petrol heads!!!!
I have just brought the Chiltons manual and it does have the wiring diagrams for most subarus.
If you just requirw the wiring diagrams I can copy them and send to you.
Just e-mail offline.
I know how it feels to be waiting for info!!!!!!!!
