I have a 98 outback legacy limited w/a dead tape deck. Radio & cd are fine. I am looking to replace it and am having trouble. Any suggestions are welcome.
Thanks!

If you still want to use the tape deck, open it up and check inasmuch as most of them have a single rubber band belt that make them run. It will be broken and dried out. Check around for a replacement, replace and voila, outdated technology brought back to life... long live the 8 track!

Many of us (I have a 97 OB) have put in the newer double DIN 6 CD changer / radio / tape deck. You lose the pocket underneath, but it is worth it. The Subaru Panasonic P123 plugs right in. Same connector. I think the newer ones that came out a couple years ago do as well, but not positive.

Thank you, where do you locate the cd changer? Is it less convenient than in the dash?

It is internal to the unit in the dash. The unit mentioned replaces the unit you have, and the storage pocket underneath.
