AC condenser. I tried two of them from two different places both did not work. Finally got one from online Subaru dealer which worked. The connection on the side from reciver drier was wrong on both of the non dealer condensers.

96 Outback

I had better luck than you. Put an aftermarket AC condensor in 97 Legacy. It hooked right up and only cost $100, a fraction of the online Subaru one. We'll see if it lasts.

glad you found one that works. the ones I have seen don't have the right connection. My Outback has three holes in the reciver-drier to condenser connection all of the ones I have seen that are non dealer have two holes.
