    Hello all, Take a look at these pictures - my trunk has been like this since I bought it. I thought replacing out the trunk lifts might fix this but no - still there. There’s a bit of a gap between the hatch and the body of the car - so much so that i can see the lift in between the hatch and...

    Hi Forum. Recently I had trouble opening the hatch on my MY11 OB and had to crawl inside to open via the emergency release. That gave me the idea to add a release button on the inside to make it easier to exit during camping. Took me about an hour to install. The procedure is straight forward...
  4. General Discussions
    I am copying this from GEN 5 discussion. Objective: To keep the cargo door open during dog shows for the comfort of dogs without killing the battery So my dog friend with Forester told me about this - a device called Ventlock. I think it is similar to using a carabiner. When you want to...
  5. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hey guys, I bought a 2017 Subaru Outback Limited with power lift gate as a parts car to fix my other Outback. I needed the fuse box, so I cut it off the 2017 Outback before opening the tailgate. So now, as I need to open the tailgate, it does not open, obviously, as I connect power because...
  6. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    We have a 2015 Limited and noticed some time ago that the outside button on the liftgate does not work. The fob will always open and close the liftgate as long as the vehicle is not running. The interior button will always work to open or close the liftgate whether the vehicle is running or off...

    Just purchased my first subaru, a 2010 Outback 2.5i premium. After a week of driving, my rear hatch wont open with the button located above the license plate. I removed all the trim and attempted to locate the problem but nothing seems to make sense. I removed the latch mechanism fully and used...

    I’ve been trying to find a way to part out my Wilco off-road tire carrier and still ride with a full size spare, the Wilco is great but with the pin system it’s a pain to get in and out especially for my wife. I have a yakima skybox on the roof that takes away the ability to roof mount it and...
  9. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    2015 outback, hey all! The hatch sometimes won't open, beeps three times. We've found only one correlation; the temperature. Above 85 degrees the hatch won't open. Otherwise it's ok. We do have a bike rack that I've removed and the behavior hasn't changed. Haven't investigate further, pulled...
