Torque specs for the oil pan bolts: 5 N-m/3.6 ft/lb. Good tutorial, thanks.

SYBT B1azeken says:

Would this be the same as the 2000 legacy ?

Big Den says:

Now if only 1A Auto sold the oil pan…

Drake Velazquez says:

Word of caution on the amount of rtv whatever you see spilling outside of the pan you can be sure there is as much or more sticking out in the pan that can break off and clog in line oil filters, lines,oil passages

J D says:

Will this apply to a 05 outback xt as well?

Rommel Yanto says:

How long (In real time) is the process of replacing the oil pan? Thanks

Sloppy Teriyaki says:

why do have to remove the 02 sensors?

Rockin Rana says:

Great job! Why do they make the pan so hard to get to and replace? You made it look so easy!

Roma Razumovsky says:

You're supposed to hand tighten rtv and let it cure for an hour then torque to spec which is 3.6 ft lbs

Wait… So there's no actual gasket? Just RTV?
