Just purchase a new interface harness that will tie between the new deck and the cars existing harness. This way you don't have to cut into the existing harness. You just make the connections between the new decks harness and the interface harness that plugs into the cars existing connection plug. You should be able to get a harness at most car audio outlets for about $15 dollars. The leads are marked and color coded. Just match them up to the new deck leads. I recommend you solder the leads and use some heatshrink over the joints .

Subaru changed the wiring harness for the 93 model year, but most Legacy's continued to use the old harness until MY95. It is easy to tell which model you have though.

If you have one single factory radio connector you have the new 1993+ harness (still in use today), if you have two separate wiring harnesses you have the old style one used on 89-92 Legacy's. Some earlier Legacy's did use the newer connector though, so you have to take the radio out to confirm.

Here are links to Crutchfield's wiring harnesses:

89-92 old style dual connector

93-current single connector
