Can someone ID this key/tool for me? 2016 Outback. We traded the car in lady month for an Ascent and thougt I turned in all keys but just found this. What is it?
It is the metal threaded thing I was curious about. We obviously never needed it the four years we owned the car, so it is just out of curiosity that I inquire. A release tool for an accessory? I am stumped.The tag may be a key code to help a dealer make new key. However, no idea what the metal thing is.
I'd say that the original keychain provided by the dealer came with some kind of bling attached, likely some kind of self-promotion by that dealer that is of no use to the customer. The threaded portion held on to some piece of plastic that has since been broken off or been unscrewed; the metal shank is all that remains.Can someone ID this key/tool for me?
I was looking at those as well. They appear to be squared off notches and not holes.Also, there are a couple square(?) holes along the shaft. One at the top, one towards the screw. Things that make you hummmmmmm.......
We may never know.
I am starting to think that is the case, since no one else with an Outback has one. It looks like something you would thread on to something to pull/move/release. I should set it aside in that “drawer” that has all those odds and ends that you can’t quite remember what they are. ThanksWell, the tag has a VIN and I see the car is available:

As for the tool, I'll also be interested to hear, if/when anyone decodes this.
@JohnGibbins, could it be something non-Subaru related that you put on to retain the tag?
Interestingly, I'm on a few different forums and although the one I got this response from a car forum, apparently that person also was able to read the code on the fob and this was the answer:Ooooo, that sounds plausible. Wish I had the car still to check it out. Anyone done that? We didn’t get anything like it with our new Ascent.
