View Full Version : BD/BG/BK engine bay picture requests.

03-12-2006, 10:51 PM
I would like engine bay pictures that show me the definite shape the fender hole where the snorkus tubing comes through and puts the intake inlet behind the headlight, preferably de-snorked. I'm trying to find the correlation between the shapes of the fender holes on what models.

The story: I bought a 2.5RS fender cap, as I was told they would fit my fender hole...well, they don't, at least not on mine. I have a 95 outback (basically a Legacy L, not a true outback) with a 2.2L.

I would like to find the correspondence between the fender holes, the years, the models of Legacy, and the Engines (if any).

Pictures please :D

I already know they DO fit a 97 GT. My guess is that the 95s and 96s had the squarish shape, and the 97-99 had the shape for the fender cap that was used on the 2.5RS.

From this picture (strat81's car, EJ22, 1996) it looks like the plug would fit...hrm...can I get a close up spence?

did you try rotating it mark?

it fits my car perfectly. The picture attached isn't a closeup, and it doesn't show the fender hole plug. But I do have one, and the part # was Fender Plate #46059FA000 PLUG

98 BD GT.

there was absolutely no way it was going to fit. It wasn't a little bit off, it was obviously bigger than the hole it was supposed to go in.

strat's looks like a slightly different hole to the one in my car.

I've loaned the car out for the next couple of days, but I'll see if I can get a pic later if it's still required.

That looks different than mine...hmmm, mine is more rectangular, the long way horizontal.

This info was already in the other thread, but here is mine:

After some digging in the parts catalogs I found that the sheetmetal in that area was changed for 96:

Front Right 1995 $262.63 51610AC044
Front Right 1996 - 1999 $102.98 51610AC141

Of course, that only indicates that they are currently carrying 2 different pieces for repairs, it certainly seems like there was significant variation over the years.
