  1. North Shore Tow Bars told me they dont do Tongue and Hitch systems for Outbacks. Ive seen them on many of my Gen models. I guess keep asking around. $450 for a standard bar seems steep when I can get a used one for $49 and they arent rocket science to install with a torque wrench etc.
  2. Well Ive had a look and Im 100% confident I can do it myself with my torque wrench. However, finding one at a wreckers; Do any other models use the same tow hitch design/bolt pattern as the BP? Do any of the Legacy sedans use the same hitch/design etc as the BP? Heaps of tow hitches at the wreckers, but not sure if the design (ie the bolt pattern) was the same for similar models and years?
  3. Nobody has an opinion on where to get a cheap tow bar fitted? I tried Subaru Strong used parts, waiting for a reply.
  4. It was simply to push the boat into place not for use on the road. But if it wont pass a wof its no go. Where is the best place to get a cheap tow hitch put on the back of this 2006 H6?
  5. I need a tow hitch on an h6 04/05 Outback. Where would be the cheapest place to get one fitted? (its not legal to fit one yourself?) Also I need one for the front to push a boat into place, cant be done in reverse. Would a tongue system be the best and most economical way? If it costs too much I will find another way to get my boat in place. Cheers
  6. I have a Pioneer head unit in my 05 outback. It is technically imported, but at 1000km as NZ stock ran out it was converted to NZ, except of course Japan runs on 100 octane so its been run on 98 all its life, 240000km. It has not had a single fault (aside from changing the airbag everybody had to). Its been service by Subaru NZ since new and done every 10000km, done by the service manual/log book. I have its 15 years of service history. Lovely car to own and drive. I considered getting the pioneer BT receiver but its $150. Id much prefer a double DIN android model so I dont have to rely on
  7. I have a left passenger door skirt (is that the technical name for the plastic panel at the bottom of the door, one on front and one on back door?) that was cracked. Its just the rear left door, its kind of missing bits, so I Im wondering is it easier to repair or buy a used one from a wrecker? I havnt seen one in the same colour used so I would have to spray it, any advice on that? Cheers
  8. No I dont but its the same as the 06 ones I see on google. See where this car has english next to the smaller trip computer in the odometer/fuel area, my one has 2-3 japanese letters instead then 300km etc. Is this normal or am I buying something wrong as mines not in English? Its under the tachometer like this, but mines in RED letters. http://i156.photobucket.com/albums/t...K/IMAG0229.jpg
  9. Saw an Outback I really liked today, only issue is due to having a DVD player/trip computer and on the main instruments a lot is in japanese, and it speaks Japanese when i do something wrong. Its more off putting to the Mrs, is there anyway to change the chip or something so the instrument panel is not Japanese writing?
  10. Wasnt sure if this was the right forum, forgive me if not, but need some help. Have 4 Subarus Im looking at today after our Outback was written off by a red light WRX. Outback, 3.0r B4 and an 2010 Impreza RS (not fast but we just want safety and Subs brilliant AWD). So if you could, please tell me the best places to get it checked out around Auckland prefer Central but will travel. :-) Thanks all.
  11. Seems like suddenly all of the above, but it might have been over a period of a month or two. Also its got the stuck in park problem, it has an over ride button, but can this be a fuse problem and if so where is that located? Please help a noob soober out.
  12. Can anyone point me to a diagram or how to on the net? thanks.
  13. Im wondering if anyone knows of where to get a service manual page online to show me how to remove my rear bumper. Got a softball sized round dent in my bumper. Was planning to heat it up and push it out. Are they hard to remove?
