Oil pan removal and install on Subaru STi/WRX:

Oil Pan Installation Steps:

8.) Install your front oxygen sensor.

9.) Tighten your motor mount nuts. Torque these to: 61 Ft-Lb

10.) Maneuver your swaybar back into place and re-install the mounts. Torque the bolts and nuts to: 18.1 Ft-Lb

11.) Re-install your subframe. This is easiest if you partially tighten the rear most 14mm bolts and then slide the grooves of the subframe around these bolts. You can now lift the front and install the foreward most 12mm bolts. Now all you have to do is install the other 2 14mm bolts and all of the 19mm bolts. Please click photograph for proper torque values.

12.) Re-install the jacking plate. Torque all fasteners to: 52 Ft-Lb

13.) Re-install the rear side plastic covers. (optional)

14.) After the RTV has had ample time to dry refill your engine oil. Follow the directions on your RTV, mine said to wait 24 hours for it to fully cure.

15.) Start your engine and let it run for a few seconds. Check your oil level now as it will probably be around 1qt low. Start your engine again and let the car run for 10 to 15 minutes checking for leaks. It is easier to spot leaks if you have previously cleaned all of the oil that leaked out earlier in the procedures.

16.) If you have no leaks re-install the front under cover.
