Do they make an after market power liftgate for 2013 Subaru Outback?

Just bought this car, love it, except the liftgate, according to the dealer, is not available in a power model, only the 2014 Forester, the seats were too small for me.

SOURCE: 2006 Subaru Outback Wagon Liftgate Actuator Not Working

I highly recommend that you purchase a Haynes service manual for your Outback; we don't have any vehicle without one. The number for your car is: 89101  I checked and found the liftgate described in sufficient detail to troubleshoot your problem. The Haynes manuals cost between $15-$30 US and you can often find the best price on eBay but if you check with any of the chain auto parts stores, you can probably find one before they close today.
I also suggest you buy a cheap digital multimeter for electrical testing. If in the US, Radio Shack has some under $20 US or if near a Harbor Freight tool store, they are under $10. Each of our vehicles has one in the glove box.
I checked the schematic (circuit diagram) for the liftgate actuator and there is no separate fuse for it, it is on the same circuit with the other door locks. There are however, two plugs in the line to the common wires so either of these could be either disconnected or corroded preventing current flow.   I have noticed a random problem with the lock/latch mechanism on ours; if the hatch is closed well enough to satisfy the warning circuit but not completely engaged, one can tug on the handle repeatedly without effect but pushing it forward will complete the latching sequence and then it opens easily; it clicks when happy.

Both seat heaters in this car are on the same fuse and relay. If one is working and the other is not, you can assume that the fuse and relay are okay. It could either be a broken circuit in the seat heater itself or a bad switch. Most likely it is a break in the heater element. I had this problem in my 2004 forester on the driver side. after removing the upholstry cover on the seat and some careful inspection I found two broken solder joints at each thermostat in the seat heater element. A quick solder job fixed the problem. The only real difficulty on the job was that the thermostats and associated connections are sandwiched between two layers of fabric and filled with hot glue. Careful probing with the end of a soldering iron can melt the hot glue away from the areas you need access to. A quick internet search will find you some pretty good directions on how to remove the seat covers. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: drivers power seat will not move forward or back.

I just finished 'repairing' in my '00 Outback wagon, which moved forward inconsistently, and never completely lifted the front edge of the seat up.  We like to move it back when we get out. Up to now, we had learned we could move it forward by hitting it like a karate chop (not good) !  
   I removed the 4 bolts mounting the seat to the floor, tilted it back, popped the toggle switch handle off & removed the 2 screws holding the side cover.  (I discovered the switch WORKED now!)
   I then disconnected the switch harness & bent the plastic cover back far enough to unscrew the switch from the inside. I inspected & spray-cleaned the switch, & in re-installing discovered the switch front plastic lobe (or knob) that snaps into the handle was loosening & finally broke off!  It works just using the rear lobe without the handle on.  
   I left it hanging beside the seat for now until I order another switch.  But, also, the rear inner screw that mounts the switch stripped during attempted re-installation, which I will have to address.  
Bottom line:  it was a mechanical failure, not an electrical one!  I could re-install without the handle & it would work.  Ugly.  Other bottom line: this was my teacher-wife's commuter car, I am inheriting it this summer when our new 2010 Prius arrives! It has 190,000 miles on it !

Electric seats quit working. Replaced fuse the first time, they worked again. Two weeks later neither seat works and fuse does not fix the problem and does not look blown.


Hi,
2013 still under warranty? Check w/the dealer as it sounds like the electric motor(s) have died, or the body control computer is dead.

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.
