GIR 08-14 WRX Firewall/Pedal Reinforcement Plate
We see this very common failure point on the 08-14 WRX (5 speed push type clutch) when the clutch comes toward end of life and gets heavier and heavier. This translates to more force being transferred through the pedal to the master. This flexes the weak firewall and hairline cracks can develop.
We do a drive in drive out repair for $440 on the firewall using our laser cut reinforcement plate, reweld, reseal and paint including all labour. This is the most economical approach to fixing the issue, short of full strip, firewall repair and repaint. The plate has laser cut holes for plug welding.
