98 Subaru outback. I Can't get the torque

98 Subaru outback. pulled the torque convertor to replace. I can't get the torque convertor to seat on the main shaft. HAve tried rotating the convertor and pressing in and also clamping with a great deal of pressure, but it stops with at least 1/2 inch to go.

Unfortunately there is really no "trick" to make it any easier. You just need patience. Make sure you are supporting all of the converters weight while trying to seat it. Tilting it slightly in different directions can help it find its grooves. Also a small amount of wheel bearing grease on the tips of the spline teeth can help a lot. Trying to force it or use pressure will not help. In fact ti will damage the teeth on the spline and then your in for big $$$. If you know it is starting to slide down the spline then stopping just before it seats then it is most likely that you are holding it just a little crooked and the tip of the spline, part with no teeth, is not seating in side the converter. Just wiggle and jiggle until she drops in just don't force it.

Check engine light comes on every 200 or so miles, code P0420. O2 sensor has been replaced. I read that there was a bad batch of catalytic converters in this model. Any other easy tests or fixes?


p0420 is set when the convertor is unable to store oxygen in the minerals used in the convertor. the lack of oxygen to mix with the exhaust gases causes the O2 sensor to set the code. if the O2 sensor has been replaced the only other thing to do is replace the convertor. you can check with the Subaru dealer and let them run your VIN to see if you had one of the defective convertors.

My rear seatbelt in my subaru outback is locked and wont pull out to buckle up. Can it be fixed


I assume you've already worked the seat belt end back and forth with force. Did the belt move at all? Did you remove the rear seat bottom cusion from the car? That will give you additional leverage on the belt.
If the belt twisted the last time it was used and then rolled up, you need to go to the dealer or an upholstery shop for help.
