Achaikos Used this product on a 1996 STi Ver III Type RA roof latch (mine was broken on arrival from japan which is common place). I bit the bullet and bought it through here. The shipping time to Canada was a few weeks which was fine. When you get the part remove the silver "o" pins from your assembly (i used a nail and light hits from a hammer to remove it) then lightly tap them into place with a hammer on the new latch (very snug fit but went in fine for me). screw the assembly back into your roof hatch and your good to go.
After i installed the new assembly i had some trouble locking the hatch closed, i had to readjust the top screw position and after that it worked fine. Thanks for making this product i'm happy to have a functioning roof hatch!
