#120 of 149 opening hatchback from inside
Jan 25, 2008 (10:42 am)
I was wondering if there is a way to open the hatch of a 2008 outback from the inside. I like to lay on the back with my dogs but if I lower the hatchback, it latches and the only way out is through the passanger doors. The dealership has no ideas. Any ideas on how to rig it? Thanks in advance.

Not by design.
You may be able to rig something, though.
The trunk releases were only required on sedans.
#122 of 149 '99 legacy upgrades
Mar 04, 2008 (12:50 pm)
Hello all. I recntly aquired a '99 legacy L, 30th anniversary edition. I had to replace the speedo, from what i read this is fairly common, and in doing so found that the wiring is in place for the factory driving/fog light switch. So, i purchased a switch, ligths and brackets from a '99 limited from a reputable salvege yard. My problem is, I cant seem to locate the lamp end of the wiring for the lights. In my experience with past subies, they seem to be all prewired for everything. Is this the case? Has anyone else had any experience or success with this upgrade? I want them to work, and it really would boost the appearance of the car. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I'm looking to upgrade my audio system. Im not sure about how to start at it. I know I'll have to do all new wiring as whats in the car is still factory. I also have no experience in this area. Any suggestions as how to go about this would be greatly appreciated.

You don't need to re-wire, you can get an adapter to put a new head unit into there and use the stock wiring. I'd look to upgrade the head unit and the speakers to start with.

Thanks, that will save me lots of trouble. But what adapter and head unit will I need?

We have a 2007 Outback and we don't have the cross-bars on the roof rack. How far back can I go to find a used set? 2005? 2003? 2000? Just curious as I would know in a second if it were a Jeep, but not so much with Subarus.
To put it simply, if I see a used set on eBay or something, what years could the crossbars come off of and still fit on my 2007?

The current generation of Outback launched for model year 2005, though I'm not sure if the rack is identical. Hopefully that at least narrows down your search to 2005+.
