I just bought a 2005 Forester 2.5XT and because I have three dogs, I also purchased the dog guard/compartment divider. I was shocked to discover that the retractable cover can not be used if the dog gate is installed. Does anyone know of a fix for this? The dog gate screws into the roof, so it's not so easy to just take it out and pop it back in.

:confused:

They both butt right up to the back of the seats to get your as much room as possible in the back. I can't really think of a way to do it without modifying the gate.

All the gates I have seen in soobies are an easy swap. Just unscrew it and screw it back in, no biggie.

Weird indeed. I have a genius dog that figured out how to bump the cargo cover from underneath & squeeeeeze through between the back of the back seat & the gate... I tried to move the gate as close as possible to the back seat with out the cargo cover & it didn't go... I had to construct a wooden frame that also tied off to the gate & the head rest brackets..... BTW: two OBWs... 99 & 96.

i just picked one up out of the free ads.was listed as being for a forester,i'm hoping that i'll be able to get it to fit in my 94 legacy :brow:

i noticed that it (bolts) to the roof,is there a cross member up there to attach it to?

well if it doesn't fit,at least i didn't pay anything for it :grin:
