Bobby Wheatley: I've been turning to your videos for the last 3 years when I have issues with my Suby---You're the best!
Keli'i “Keezy” Aoyagi: Mahalo for your help! Helps me to catch mistakes
Nelson Chua: good info, thanks for doing this. Although I got dizzy watching it....
Scott Smith: This guy is my go-to youtube source for all things wrenches and Subarus. Got a 2001 Forester that keeps me busy. Using Brian's help, have done head gaskets, both front CV axles, oil pan reseal, etc. Buy him a beer!
Senthil Kumar: Yes, easy to follow videos! Thanks
MrSoulMonk: Thanks for the great video Brian. I have an '04 Outback wagon, and I have seen two different approaches to getting this done. The service manual talks about undoing the castle nut on the control arm at the bottom, popping the ball joint, and then yanking the axle out. The method you demonstrate is more common. I do not have the pickle fork or the ball joint puller to do what the manual says, and am debating which approach is better. This is my first DIY axle. Thanks!
Mario Aguirre: I have a question, what if you pulled the spline out of the gear box? I'm having trouble getting it back in past the keeper ring.
Jeremy Connor: Dude, thanks for these Subaru videos; you're making my first time Gearbox removal/repair a LOT easier!
jihadtamer: Thanks Brian! Top instruction that worked replacing CV axle drive on my Subaru.
Jason Theobald: Thx again Brian I've learned so much from you.
John Laursen: Always the best. I have a 99 Impreza, 01 Forester, and a 07 Outback. The 01 and 07 I watched your stuff on head gaskets and was able to repair both. Also did a Gates belt/pump on one. Thanks for the good work.
crl2778: what size is the punch?
Eric P: Thanks for the video! Do you happen to have a diameter of the punch you used or the number for the bostich tool specifically? Thanks!
karl willard: WTF, seriously, why do I pay so much money to have things done to my subaru when you make videos like this explaining everything in detail? I can do this myself! Thanks for the video!
James Griffin: I just replaces the front driver side axle and while I was down there I replaced the faulty seal that sits on the inside of the retainer. I've been looking through the service manual and I'm worried that I may have thrown off the backlash or the preload. Should I be worried?
SubiFLEX WRX STi: You're awesome bud, you're very precise with no extra info! That's what I love about your videos! Thank you!
freshkicks: how do u know if u need a male or female axle
ThatSillyItchyTurian: Thanks for showing us man. Punch kit ftw! -Good thing I bought one.
Travis Hart: Hey Brian, I am doing this exact repair on my 99 legacy. Do you remember when removing the pin if it mattered which side it came out of? On mine, one of the two hole openings appears to be bigger then the other, Thanks.
Brandon Black: much easier to just unbolt the lower ball joint and remove the hub front he control arm. You don't need an alignment if you do it that way.
