If the latch is working, than the striker (the U-shaped rod inside the glove box that engages the latch to hold the glove box closed) has been bent (probably bent up) and cannot engage the striker. Bending the striker to the correct angle will allow it to engage the latch and problem fixed. You can n=bend the striker into the correct position pressing down on it with your hand (a little at a time). If you remove the glove box door (7 screws inside the glove box) you can see where the striker needs to be positioned to engage the latch. Probably only a small adjustment is needed. See the link below for parts break down.

How to change cabin air filter in a 2003 Subaru outback/


Your cabin filter is located behind the glove box.
First you will need to remove the glove box. Open the glove box, and on the left and right side on the inside, there will be a retainer that you will need to pull out. This will cause your glove box to fall forward, exposing all of the screws. Unscrew the 10 screws around the outer edge of the glove box, and pull the unit down and out of your way.
After the glove box is removed, you will be able to see the HVAC casing. You will see the access door to the cabin filter, held in with some clips. Disconnect the resistor connector that is in your way, then remove the four clips in order to access the filters.
Once you pull the filters out, you can install the new ones in reverse order. Make sure that the arrows on the filters are pointing up, and that the door is sealed properly when you close it back up.
Good luck and please let me know if I may further assist you. -TXTEXAN

Subaru liftgate lock stuck, liftgate won't close


You should open the tailgate and pull the handle and at the same time push the hook back so that it is not in the way of the lock bar when go to close it. Sounds like it just got jammed and should be able to be fixed with out having to replace. Assuming that it is not rusted and seized.

2005 subaru outback cabin air filter install


Yes the o5 outback has a cabin air filter and it is located behind the glove box. You have to remove the glove box, once you get it out of the way you will need to remove the 4 metal clips that hold it in place and make sure you put the filters in with the arrows pointing in the right direction for air flow. Other wise you will have restriction through the vents
