Question about 2000 Subaru Outback

1 Answer

I need the name of a small part for my 2000 Outback wagon

On the rear passenger doors, centered slightly below the armrest, there is a small, square, snap-in plastic cap that is a screw cover (or so my husband says but he's pretty credible). My 14-week old puppy was left alone in the car and naturally noticed this item and pried it out and chewed it to smithereens. If I can learn the name of the part hopefully I can find one or special order one from a dealer. None of the parts search sites seem to refine down any farther than an entire arm assembly, if that. I know it might be tough to get this part but it's worth a shot. Thanks to anyone who can help.

It is a screw cover -- don't know its technical name -- that may be it. Best way to get it is visit a junkyard -- I'm sure you'll find one there (for the right price).

Where is the power armrest control located?

It should be in the vicinity of the armrest....Is this a door armrest or center console armrest? In either case, the adjustment will be near to the armrest, like the seats have an adjustment at the hinge area.

My 2000 Subaru Outback has a loud rattle from the rear gate (ie door)

Check your rear stabilizer bar an make sure that all the bolts are still intact. You may also want to crawl under the vehicle and give your muffler a shake to ensure that no mounts are missing. these are the most common issues associated with rattling from the rear of vehicle.

2000 Subaru Outback Wagon (100K miles) with P0420 Code

I do not know for sure if this is the problem you are having, But, I have noticed that from 95 up to 2002 I have seen a lot of PO420 codes that have been just the sensor. I do not know if it was a weak sensor or just that program telling it that it is below threshold. I did notice that if the vehicles are run for a long trip at highway speed it goes out. I wish you luck and have a great day.

How do you remove the inside rear door panel of a 2002 ford explorer. I need to service the power window on the rear door on the passenger side. Submitted on 9/29/2009 @ 1:07 pm. Thank you

1. Open window & remove door lock knob. 2. Remove 2 screws from armrest & remove armrest. 3. If manual windows, remove windoe crank. 4. Pry under & remove trim panel around door handle, remove any un-covered screws. 5. This is the fun part, the door panel is affixed with plastic retaining clips, slip something thin under door panel until you can feel where clip is and pull door panel away from door at that point. These clips are suppose to remain in the door panel, but rarely do. They usually remain in the door itself. do this for EVERY clip you find, there are clips approx a foot apart around the entire panel. Good luck. 6. After all retaining clips are pulled out, lift panel slightly to disengage panel from flange at base of window. 7. Disconnect any electric wires or switches and there you have it. Try not to curse.

How do I remove the passenger side interior rear door panel on a 2000 Yukon to access the window regulator?

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Pull back the weather seal and you'll be able to get to everything.

Lightbulb replacement for 2000 Subaru outback wagon

all you need to do is remove the clip holding the washer fluid neck filler, once this is out of the way you can access the big gray backing that should have two wires coming out of it. just twist in the direction indicated and remove the cap, now you have access to the back of the bulb, remove the wires attatched to it and remove the metal clip that holds the bulb in place. now just put the new one in. You will see a small tab on the round part of the bulb, below the glass, align it right in the slot and put the metal clip back on and put the wires back on and backing cap and washer filler cap. P.S do not touch the glass on the new bulb, the grease on your fingers will prematurely burn the bulb out.

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.
