The easy part is you just need the latch for the liftgate. The hard part is getting to it and opening the liftgate to replace the latch. You should be able to pull the liftgate trim off most of the way with the gate closed and try to manually actuate the latch to open the gate. You may have to go so far as breaking the latch from the inside to open the gate and then replace your latch.

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.

SOURCE: power liftgate doesn't work
The power liftgate motor is located on the driver side panel directly behind the lift arm. First you will have to take the safety belt bolt out. After you get the plastic piece free from the body you will have to take the bolt out of the arm that connects to the hatch. Make sure you have a big enough torx bit for the bolt that holds the arm to the gate. This will allow you to slide the plastic piece off and out of your way. If you are having trouble getting the plastic piece to come off from around the liftgate arm, try putting the door down, that helped me. The rest should be easy. Hope this info helped you out.
