    Are you there?

  • shirl3 May 20, 2011

    should I accept the solution or are you still working on it?

  • shirl3 May 23, 2011

    Okay, I took the information to my mechanic and he said it wasn't for the right car. It's a Subura, Impresa 1993. He is having a hard time getting the transmission out in order to put in another used transmission. Please help

  • shirl3 May 23, 2011

    The information I received regarding the suburu impresa 1993 was not right. Could you please try again?

  • shirl3 May 24, 2011

    5/23/11 6:50 pm You sent the same thing as before. The subura impreza is not set up the same as the legacy. Could you please try again or give me my money back?

How do I get to the lock cylinder on a 93 Impreza? It's loose and i'm concerned it mat fall down inside the door


Lock cylinders are attached on the inside of the door with a clip. Remove the door card then the retainer for the lock rod. The body clip just slides out the side. Then you can push a fresh clip on http://thumbs.ebaystatic.com/d/l225/m/mNfX1-Te6xNF1e1CaSdEnXQ.jpg
