RE 2000 Outback limited wagon.
Has anyone any idea where the pigtail is for the trailer wiring.
It does not appear to be behind any of the taillights.
Thanks

In my 2002 Forester, the trailer wiring connector is located in the spare-tire wheel well (on the right-side as you face into the rear hatch).

If it was like my 02 OBW, the wiring connector is part of the wiring harness that comes down the passenger side wheel well. Pull up the floor panel over the spare, pull the right side floor panel (in between the tail lights and the wheel well) and remove the wall panel between the tail lights and the wheel well. You should see the harness coming down the back of the wheel well, and the connector should be sitting there waiting in anticipation for you.

It's behind the driver's taillight on the right hand drive models!

I bought the factory trailer hitch and wiring harness assembly, and yes the directions say that the connector for the trailer hitch assembly is located on the driver's side. I tore that damn car totally apart, and it was right where they said it should be, BUT on the passenger side of the car! Go figure! And my wife wants to know why I have grey hair.
