How to Install a Trailer Wiring Harness on a 2005 Subaru Outback Wagon


Today on our 2005 Subaru Outback Wagon, well be installing the Tow Ready T-One Connector, part number 118461. Before we begin the installation, well need to go ahead and locate the manufacturers tow port on the driver side. Well start by removing the interior trim panels, first the access door on the driver side, then the center spare tire cover. Next well remove the carpeting on the driver side porter panel. Now with those removed, we can go ahead and remove the interior trays, the center and driver side. With those removed, we can now just see part of the manufacturers tow port wire hanging under the driver side interior quarter panel.

Well need to go and reach under the interior quarter panel and pull the plug free as it will be taped to the wire. Now that we have the connector pulled out to where we can access it, well go ahead and take the new Tow Ready T-One Connector and plug in line with the manufacturers wiring. As you can see, they are matching connectors. Next well need to mount the convertor box. Well go ahead and tuck the wiring inside the interior quarter panel, remove the two-way adhesive from the convertor box and adhere it to a clean, flat surface.

With that done, well start reinstalling the interior trim components. Next well go ahead and start routing the wire into the center tire well. With our wiring routed, now well go ahead and show you how to use your new four-pole connector. Simply take our four-pole and route it down to the hitch or accessory. Be careful and stay away from the latch, just closing the wire in the latch can harm it.

However, the weather stripping is thick enough that wont harm the wires, so well simply close the rear cargo door on it. Then once youre finished using our new four-pole connector, well roll it up and store it into the rear cargo tray. And that does it for the install of our Tow Ready T-One Connector, part number 118461 on our 2005 Subaru Outback Wagon.
