I suspect a connector or ground(or two!), given the issue with the driver window as well. Where to start? Not sure about that one...

I need to remove the radio from my 03 Baja. Would appreciate either instructions on how to do it or where to find the info.

Should be like my old 02 Legacy. Similar interior.
I started at the center arm rest and worked forward.
Think I found pics on scoobymods, do a Google search for 2000-2005 Legacy stereo install, something like that.
There's no way you'll find Baja - the model was far less common.

Just replaced the deck in my Baja. I bought the wiring harness from crutchfield, they included a handy installation guide for free on how to remove the stereo and speakers. Included photos! A real time saver. It wasn't 100%, but very close.
If you're replacing the radio, I recommend ordering the harness from them, not only was the price reasonable, you can't beat good instructions!
Recommend a good extension driver & retrieval magnet, getting to some of those screws on the mount can be challenging - especially when putting it all back together. Also need a really short phillips.
Loosing my left front speaker though, the diaphragm keeps sticking to the magnet. At least now know know how to get to it.

Yeah, I got a stereo from them for my 93 Miata, also got the harness. Like you said, worked on the first try, despite lots of wires.
#17 of 21 Parking Light (tail lights) stay on

I have a 2006 Baja sport. Quite happy with this Subaru but today the parking light / tail lights stay on. Only way to shut them off is to unhook the battery. Any suggestions? Thanks, Tom

There's a large, shallow switch on the top of the steering column that will keep the parking lights on when the vehicle is shut off. You may have bumped it!

That is why they are called "Parking Lights"... you turn them on when you are parked. - LOL
My Baha turbo is my first Subaru.... It may very well be the best vehicle I have ever owned. It does not get the 50+MPG like my Wifes VW TDI... but it goes anywhere I point it in the snow and mud.
