    I was loading groceries the other day and went to push the close button on the liftgate and my hand hit the button hanging out, only attached by the power connectors. I tried in vain to push it back in and have it stay, but it felt like it wasn't catching or latching into the plastic body...

    Hi, I looking for a replacement liftgate support strut for a Japan made 2010 outback. The original Subaru replacement is sold here in Chile at about 220 USD EACH, compared to the 20-30 USD for the US made. Anyone tried to use the US liftgate strut on a Japan/euro outback? Looking at the...

    Returning user here. I did a search and did not find an answer, so here is my plight. Our 2017 Outback was in a minor accident that damaged the rear passenger door. It's been repaired, but before returning the vehicle to us the collision center noticed the rear lift gate would not open...

    Hi All! Looking for any recommendations on replacement (non-OEM) lift gate struts that might make the rear lift gate a open slight bit more, maybe even just an inch or two? Why?

    I just bought this used and had one issue with the power liftgate. When I open it by pushing the button (memory button "off"), it opens completely, then makes a long beep and slowly starts to close. At a few points, it falls a little more and beeps again. Eventually it completely closes. I can...
  8. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    The piece of rubber along the bottom of the gate window on my 2016 subaru outback has gotten damaged. I went to parts.subaru.com but I had trouble identifying it. Can anyone assist? I suppose a follow up question is whether it is straightforward to pull the old one out and push a new one in.

    We have the roof rails unlocked and have a luggage carrier on the car. Since doing this, and with the two most recent rains, I notice that there is significant leaking from our back gate window.
