I've seen a few 95-99 generation Legacy wagons with a rear spoiler. I would have called it a visor, but I guess it is a spoiler. Anyway, I've never seen one listed on eBay and have not been able to find one in a local salvage yard. I think I'd like one on my 95 wagon. Were they only on LTD Outback wagons? Anybody know if it is indeed called a rear spoiler or a hatch spoiler or what???

My non-LTD Oh Bee has one also

 

I have heard it refered to as a

 

"wind deflector"

 

I think they were an option item.

Possibly dealer installed?

It is a wind deflector and is suppose to keep the rear window clearer by forcing the air across it while you are driveing, and they are factory and won't be found on Ebay or aftermarket.

I think this is the part you are talking about. It's 'spensive tho and primed only which means paint yourself to your color....salvage yard maybe http://www.car-part.com might be the way to go, might even find it already in your color!

Thanks Porc, I sit corrected I think.

 

The picture almost looks like it has an opening

in the center of it.

(like a trunk mounted normal spoiler would)

hey nice posting of the diagram! Hm good point, that does look open there. Not sure. My '00obw doesn't have one of those spoiler things nor does my '94....my '96 has something like that but it's just a piece of flat black metal:

I have had/have the model on your maroon wagon

on several of my GL wagons.

 

The dust deflector looks even different.??

 

Thanks for the good job, you are my mentor.

 

(I like the first picture of your three wagons--

fine stable you have there)

cars101.com typically shows for that era outback:

Rear Spoiler - wagon only $295. [i think the 'only' refers to the wagon, not the price :lol: ].

Rear Dust deflector $115

Thanks for the great feedback. Yeah, I want the spoiler and not the dust deflector. I appreciate having the name looked up and verified. I'll see if I can call some out-of-state salvage yards that have lots of foreign cars and see if I have any luck. I can't pay the OEM part price--wow!

 

I assume they are fiberglass or plastic?

 

I think they add a nice look to the wagons.

The one on my Oh Bee is fiberglass

I believe.

If you want I'll get some shots of how it mounts.

 

For my man Porc

Wagons away!!!

I have a 98 Legy OBW Limited with the air deflector, and a 99 Legy OBW (non Limited) without it. The deflector must be part of the Limited package option. Having both cars, I don't see that it makes much difference. The tail gate glass on both my Subies seem to pick up the same amount of dirt.
