Question about 2000 Subaru Outback

1 Answer

Lusru - you fixed it

I haad the problem with the rear hatch not opening. You asked if someone pushed down when I tried to open it. My wife and I tried it previously with no luck, After reading your post I asked our 240 pound neighbor to push on it and it worked. I oiled everywhere I could and it seems to be working now. Any idea on what caused it?

How do you open the back door (no manual)


Rear hatch is locked or unlocked with a key. (if equipped) • To open the rear hatch, insert the key into the lock, turn it to the unlock position and pull up the rear hatch by pressing the handle (DOOR). You can also lock/unlock the latch (but not release it) with the central door lock system. • If unlocked, the rear hatch can be opened by pressing the handle (DOOR) and pulling the hatch up. • To close the rear hatch, lower and push down the rear hatch firmly. Make sure that the rear hatch is securely latched.

I need to fix by ail lights but cannot open rear hatch. How can I access this frm inside


You can't. You have to get the hatch open. Pull the top trim off the hatch. Remove two screws , one on each side. Pull the bottom panel out and reach down and grab the rod or arm to open the hatch. Then you can access the screws to remove the rear lens. Fix the hatch since it is open.

2001 Chevy Blazer - I pushed the rear hatch button to open it. Now the rear hatch won't open at all. I also can't lock my doors while inside since I pushed the rear hatch button.


sounds like something may be shorted in your rear hatch switch and when you pushed the button to open it you may have blown a fuse. I would check your fuse and make sure they are all still good. I would also try to look inside the rear hatch and check the wires and see if there is something wrong with one of them.

Rear hatch won't open. Intermittently. Is there a way to manually open the hatch so that i can get to the latch?


There is a little plastic circle on the inside trim, near the bottom of the rear hatch. Pop this off, and you can get a finger inside, or better yet a screwdriver. There is a metal piece labeled L3, I believe. It doesn't take much pressure, but you must manually push this and it will release the lock, and you can push the door open.

Rear Hatch Window


This could be a simple door adjustment. Have someone sit in the car while you push in on the hatch. See if the light goes off . If the light goes off, then adjust the striker plate so the hatch closes tighter.

Back door wont open and window wont go down


The rear window has to be completely down in order to move the tailgate! You should be happy that your window is stuck up, unlike mine which is stuck all the way down! I have to completly take apart my tailgate!! If you want to try a trick to get the rear window down, my bronco has a rear window switch right next to the headlight knob, take the 2 purple wires on that window switch, and cross them, if your motor still works and if the wires are good, that should make the window go down!!! good luck, hope that helps!
