Subaru OEM Timing Belt Component List

Subaru-OEM

When it is time to change the timing belt in your Subaru you’ll want to change out more than just the timing belt. The water pump, thermostat, idler and tensioner bearings, hydraulic tensioner assembly, drive belts, and seals all should be replaced with the timing belt. What is more, they should be replaced with OEM parts.

So, What Are OEM Parts?

OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer and buying OEM ensures that you are getting the same parts that the automobile manufacturer used when building your car. It should be noted that failure to use OEM replacement parts may void your manufacturer’s warranty.

How Do You Know If Your Subaru Parts Are OEM?

Herein lies the problem. Subaru, like most automobile manufacturers does not publicize from which manufacturers they source their parts and finding accurate information online is a bit of a crap-shoot. Luckily for you, we have listed below Subaru’s preferred manufacturers for all of your timing belt replacement parts.
