Question about 2000 Subaru Outback

1 Answer

My 1999 subaru legacy outback (wagon) trunk won't open. I can hear the lock opening and closing but I can't get the trunk to open. Sometimes I try it like 50 times and maybe it opens...sometimes it opens every time for a month...but now we re in a stage and it won't open at all... and having a wagon that won't open is super frustrating...

This is very common. The hinge on the handle gets dirty and rusty and it does not return all the way. Push the handle all the way to the return position then unlock. It should open then. I use WD-40 on the hinges of the handle every 2 months to keep it free. Hope this helps and have a great day.

For a 1999 Subaru Legacy does it have just the screw on transmission filter or is there also one in the pan?


I have a 99 Subaru Legacy Outback wagon also. I just changed my fluid & filters. There is a spin-on AND a bolt-in that's inside (you have to drop the pan).

Latch for hatch of my '07 Subaru is closed with gate open


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.

My subaru legacy's truck doo would not open. Appreciate your help


Check for a rusty handle. If you push the handle forward then try the power unlock then open the door with handle. I have been finding that the handle becomes rusty and does not return all the way when released. Therefore not allowing the locks to disengage. Hope this helps.

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.
