Question about 2008 Subaru Outback

Open Question

How do I remove the rear hatch plastic panel of a 2008 2.5I Subaru outback wagon

How can I gain access to the wires that control the wiper motor. When I remove the rubber grommet at the top right of the hatch I cannot get access to enough of the wires to fix the short in the wires. Thanks

    I still have not had any response on this question.  I want to gain access to the group of wires that run to the Wiper motor.  Anyone help?  Thanks

Unfortunately, you will have to remove the panel of the door, Use flathead screwdriver to pry open. It is very likely the spring fell off.

SOURCE: Trunk lock won't open

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.

SOURCE: '99 subaru legacy wagon rear hatch won't unlock

before you pull stuff, go to the back of the car. Instead of pulling the latch (away from the car and towards you) to open the hatch, push the lever in the other direction (towards the car, away from you).

i had this happen to me and read about it online, worked totally fine. It's just stuck towards you and not "sitting" correctly. Hope it works!

    Accessing the Brake Light Bulbs
  1. If you are the owner of a Subaru Outback 2004 or older, you are in luck. Accessing your brake light bulbs is simple. Open your rear hatch (or trunk if your Outback is a sedan) and locate the access panels in the corner of your cargo area. Twist the knobs on the access panel to remove it and access the bulb modules.

Rear wiper Don't work


Hi,
There is an electric motor that runs the wiper in the rear hatch. Remove the rear plastic panel and verify that the motor is getting 12 volts, using a multi-meter. If it is, then the motor needs replaced. If not then the wiring is likely bad between the switch on the dash/stalk and the rear wiper. The wiring may have broken where it goes into the rear hatch, also.

GL,
Td

Replacing rear wiper motor on a 2006 smart fortwo


Open the rear hatch. You must pull off the hatch panel. There you will see 2 bolts holding the motor in place. Remove the wiper arm and the nut under the cover first. Unplug the wires going to the motor. Then remove the 2 bolts to the wiper motor. Install motor with the bolts. Replug in the wires. Reinstall the hatch panel. Then you can reinstall the nut and cover. Reinstall wiper arm. Done.

Rear windshield wiper connection


You need to open the rear glass from the rear hatch. Look inside where the glass latches to the rear hatch. There is a Phillips head screw that connects the rear inner plastic panel to the rear hatch, remove this screw. Now, in the strap that you use to pull the rear hatch down, there is a torques head screw, that holds this strap to the rear hatch, you need to remove this screw.
Start at one of the outer corners of the inner plastic panel and pull the panel away from the hatch. You will see the upper wiper motor in the right hand corner of the hatch. ther is one connector that is easy to see, you have to pull up on a plastic clip to remove this connector. Look for the rubber hose for the windshield washer fluid, it may be cracked or fallen off the plastic nozzle to the outside of the rear door.

Please the hose back on or replace the hose if it's cracked or damaged by the wiper motor. To install just follow the procedure in revers.
Good luck and hope i made some sense. Keep me posted, be glad to help out.
