Hey guys,

I winterized my 98 Outback today and everthing was going smooth untill it was time to pull out my impeller. For the life of me i can't seem to get it out. Is there any special tools for this or should the impeller just pull out relatively easy?

Neddle nose vise grips are your friend. :)

Goose is right plus spray some siilicone lube or similar on impeller
And inside splines and bump engine and it should slip out easier

I've always found a good stiff drink or a couple of beers always helped me when fighting the dreaded stuck impeller dilemma. Go get em tiger!
