Starter interlock nut size

does anyone know what size the nuts are to adjust the starter interlock switch on a 2013 wrx?

I installed a IXIZ clutch limiter a few weeks ago, but when it gets cold like it has been in chicago, the rubber cap, that was included in the kit for the switch, doesn't really work how it should. I feel like i have to really mash my foot onto the clutch in order to get the car to start.

not really in the best position for a picture.i took my clutch limiter off, and the car will not start even though it has the stock clutch travel again.

I have to press the switch in with my hand then turn the key. kinda sucks, but its way to cold (-17) right now to keep trying to look at it.

ill update tomorrow, i can work on it indoors tomorrow morning after i get to work

im seriously confused right now?

I never adjusted the starter interlock switch when i installed the IXIZ Clutch limiter, so, in theory, when i removed the clutch limiter, i should have been able to start the car, but that is not the case.

the plunger on the starter interlock has to be pushed in all the way for me to start the car, but that cannot be attained by simply actuating the clutch pedal.

and tips or advice?

I dont know what caused it to go out of wack, but the nut size is 14mm.

you have to use a stubby box end wrench to get on the nut and break the initial torque, make your adjustment, then tighten it back down.

All is well

Thanks Blaze2099
