Post All Manuals and Brochures for 5th gen OB

I've seen others combine the pdfs for specific model years in other threads and have decided to go a few steps further and do it for every year.

These files contain all the .pdf files available at: http://www.subaru.com/owners/vehicle-resources.html

Even though Subaru provides manuals for each model (wagon, limited, premium, L.L. Bean etc.) they are all the same. They created one manual which encompasses the entire line.

Link directly to manual pages:
I'm excited to provide a method of linking directly to a page in a manual using Scribd.com.

The url is structured like this:
https://www.scribd.com/embeds/331449185/content?secret_password=W1jWZ4dc5Atesba3KFNp&title =Outback-2017-Manual-Single&start_page=1

Simply change the number of the start_page parameter to the page you want to link to.

Find the specific manual page:
To locate the page you'd like to link to, download the single pdf, open it and search using the keyboard shortcuts: CTRL + F on Windows or COMMAND + F on Macs.

Example link to page 466 "Trailer Hitches":
https://www.scribd.com/embeds/331449...start_page=466

I hope this will encourage our members to refer to the manual more often and link to pages instead of replying "RTFM".

Now that all the hard work has been done, there's no excuse right? ;D

This project was a lot more work than I anticipated. It's very likely I've made a mistake and link is broken or pointing to the wrong file etc. Please let me know and I'll fix it.

File contents:

Outback_[year]_manual_grouped_pdfs.zip---- Multi-page pdfs combined into their respective group/manual.

Outback_[year]_manual_single.pdf------------ All the pdfs combined into a single pdf. Use Scribd link to link to specific page.

"Alt. Download" is an alternate download source in case the first one doesn't work.

Note:
When using a mobile device (phone/tablet) or a forum app like TapaTalk the links above may not work correctly.
Look for a "Download" button or icon. Also try using the Alt. download link.

Google Drive Warning:
You may see a warning from Google Drive saying the file could not be scanned for viruses. This usually occurs when the file is large like these.
I assure you the files I uploaded are clean and donít contain any viruses.

Other years:
4th Gen. (2010-2014) OB Manuals and Brochures
3rd Gen. (2005-2009) OB Manuals and Brochures
2nd Gen. (2000-2004) OB Manuals and Brochures

Your trailer hitch example link is broken. It appears to be linked to a nonexistent page on subaruoutback.org.

Additionally, I copied the URL directly from the text to visit the page and got an error message from scribd.

These files contain all the .pdf files available at: Vehicle Resources | Subaru of America

There isn't a "Warranty and Maintenance" .pdf provided on that page.

If you know where they are located I can add them.

Just an FYI. I attempted to download the full "single" PDF for the 2017 Outback (92MB). The link led to Amazon, and then I got this message:

Firefox can’t find the file at https://content-na.drive.amazonaws.c...eJxFPc/alt/pdf.

Of course, the full single manual for the 2017 Outback is the one I wanted! But thanks for putting this altogether. I imagine it required a lot of work!!

Yeah, that message is annoying, basically it means the PDF is too big for it to generate a preview/online view for.
You should see a download button at the bottom of the screen.

Most services I've tried freak out over the pdf size.

I didn't even see that download icon on the bottom of the screen.

Just saw the big error message.

I downloaded the file without problems, but during the download it did throw up another error message.

Thanks for putting this all up.
