Hey folks, does anyone have a link for the fuse diagram that's under the dash for a 2018 OB 2.5 limited? It is on the access door, but unfortunately the door does not open far enough to read it.

Thanks in advance!

Owner's Manual Pages 12-10 and 12-11. If you have created an account on mysubaru.com, you can download .pdfs of all the manuals, which I find much easier than using the paper manuals.

Attached are images of the relevant pages.

The door is easy to remove; just open it and pull straight back. When you're done, line up the clips that act as the hinge and push it back on.

Could be a good idea to keep a PDF copy on a smartphone.
I have an iPhone and in iBooks, mySubaru manuals are all in there. It is nice being able to search within the PDFs.
I think someone on these forums created a single PDF from all the PDFs so you can search all the manual sections in a single place. So very nice!

Just popped mine out to give me some more room to remove a fuse, easy looks to be made to snap in and out.

While on the subject, my 18 OB cigarette/Acc outlet in the center console quit. I found two fuses a 10 amp and 20 amp for outlet and ACC. both are good all other outlets and USB have power anything else to check?

I was using it to power a 2.1 amp usb to charge a tablet.

I am hoping to hardwire a radar detector and a dashcam this weekend but the more "warranty and dealer trips" w/18 OB I'm reading... I am skeptical if I should follow through with my plans. It's not terribly hard to install or remove just a pain in the ass.

Use an "add-a-circuit" adapter. The adapter replaces a fuse, and has a spot for two fuses and a pigtail wire. You move the original fuse to one of the slots to restore the original circuit, and insert a new fuse in the other to power the pigtail. Works great, and no permanent mod to the car so it's easily reversed.

They're available from several sources. Here's one I found by Googling:

Yes, I have done this in several other vehicles using add a circuit. The problem is that no other maker/dealer ever said any after market parts will void the warranty like Subaru did. If something goes wrong or breaks and I need to go to the dealership I would ha to remove the devices. Not a big deal just a Pain in the rear...
