Question about 2006 Subaru Outback
One day, out of the blue, we opened the liftgate to our 2000 Subaru Legacy Outback, and when we tried to close it again, the latch was stuck and would not give around the lockbar. The door just would not close. We now hold it closed with a bungee cord from the rear wiper to the bottom of the bumper. Talked to an auto shop around here and they wanted $120 to diagnose the problem, and said the replacement lock would cost $240, not to mention the labor to re-install. HELP!
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.
