Question about 2000 Subaru Outback
1999 Subaru Outback wagon (can't find 1999 below - sorry) - the trunk hatch lock won't open. You can hear it "thunk" when using the remote unlock. How can I get access to it?
Usually the problem is that the handle has not returned to the fully down position, probably because it's getting old/rusty.
When this happens on my Outback I just push the handle down until I hear it engage, then pull up and the door opens.
Some people lube the handle regularly. I haven't had to yet.

The door panel is bolted down with 2 screws at the button of the panel (toward the floor). once you take the screws out the panel is push up toward the ceiling of the car. you may have to remove the side panel in order for the back apnel to move.
you going to need use little force. since the panel is all the way to the edge for the door.
