For what it's worth, I have a 2005 Outback manual transmission. There is a "stub" on the top of the radiator, passenger side, which is about 1/4 inch in diameter. It looks like it would be used to send coolant to some other part on the vehicle (maybe a turbo?), but it is not used on my car. Instead, they close it off with a rubber cap held in place with a hose clamp. The rubber cap is not reinforced and developed cracks where coolant leaks out. You have to remove a plastic cover with two plastic philips head screws to see it. You might not realize that this is the problem because it is hidden. Check it before you go ahead and replace the radiator.
