Timing belt guide?
 
I have a 05 lgt automatic.
Does it have a timing belt guide? My engine builder said it is missing and I can't find a stock example, let alone a replacement of one. I did find an aftermarket one, but I don't see where it's a factory thing.

The automatic does NOT have timing belt guides. This is not obvious in the FSM.

I found out when I changed my timing belt. Here's my thread: http://www.subaruoutback.org/forums/...lt-guides.html

Thread back from the dead... In process of doin my timing belt right now.. I just discovered that there is no guides at all on this motor.. is it ok to add a guide over the crank as I ordered a replacement anyhow.. can it do harm. I wouldn’t think so but...
Thanks
Dave

If you Have an automatic transmission I would not add a timing belt guide. There really is no use for it and it can cause the belt to be worn prematurely if not properly installed.

Thank you ... I mounted it and was unable to get the 1 mm clearance on the passenger side so I took it off.
