Subaru Legacy/Outback Accessories and Modifications

    Sorry for the late response, but in case anyone comes across this post, I did get it to work. I Removed the latch that is attached to the hood and slipped a washer on the bolts between the latch and the hood. This allowed the latch to extend slightly lower and catch the latch mechanism behind the grille without having to slam it.

    BTW - OEM deflector
  • Anyone know how difficult it is to add XM to a pre wired system, or should you go through a dealer? I did the wiring for XM on my Jeep I traded off and am hooked on it.

    Thanks in advance

    The 07s have aux input, do you have an output?

  • I have a Delphi receiver but the Subaru has a Sat ready radio installed, the dealer quoted me $495 to install the modules to activate, seems a bit much so I was wondering how hard it would be to do myself.

    Yikes. That's a lot.

    What about the place you got the Delphi thing from? Will they install it again? Or was it mail order?

    Is there a way to use the sirius kit for the impreza or the forester in the outback? They say it is xm only but in 2008 you will have a choice of either. Since the car is pre-wired could it accept a sirus antenna and receiver?
  • I don't know the answer, but would like to know the same thing re the 2007 Legacy LTD Sedan I'm buying this week. Sirius just announced they are buying XM, but that's likely to take a year to complete.
  • Can anyone tell me if they make window vent shades for a 95' subaru legacy wagon ? I have been looking for one online but haven't come up with anything. I was told by a friend that they are avaible.

    Do you mean Rain Guards? I am not sure what a window vent shade is? :confuse:
  • yes I guess you could call them rain guards too. In the old days say in the 50's I know they called them vent shades. They go above your windows, a nice feature when wanting to keep rain, snow, etc out of the car. Also I am told they help with wind noise on those frameless subaru doors.
  • I have a 2001 outback. The manual says not to plug anything but a cigarette lighter into that port. How do I get an outlet for my cell phone or video player?
  • caliberchiccaliberchic Posts: 402
    I am sure you can plug other things that run on the same voltage into that port.
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    My Forester's manual says the same thing, yet I've charged several different Nokia cell phones and RIM BlackBerry models there for the past 9 years, no problem. :shades:
  • Thanks for the responce. I tried to plug in my phone ( I figured it would be ok too) but when I did the radio started staticing instantly. When I unplugged it, it stopped. I can't figure why unless it really means don't plug anything else into it. Or maybe there's something wrong with the radio?
  • caliberchiccaliberchic Posts: 402
    Was it static or reverb? That is common with speakers of all sorts. Cell phones cause reverb in them.
  • definately static
    any ideas?
  • caliberchiccaliberchic Posts: 402
    Sorry no because I can't think of who those two are related. Using that port shouldn't affect your radio noise, the port is voltage while the radio is frequency. :confuse:
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Perhaps it is a bad ground?

    Now that I think about it, I did have some minor issues with a Nokia hands-free kit that had a speaker phone. It was for a Nokia phone, but made by some other company, I forget now.

    I am not sure if this is still a problem, but I know there was mention a while back of GSM phones causing interference in the radio - due to the actual transmission frequencies. Admittedly, I have not followed this conversation to see the original post, but just thought I would throw that out there.
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Yeah, I stopped using it for another reason - poor quality.

    Fortunately my newer phone has a built-in speaker that sounds much better.
