    Friend of mine just picked up a '99 Outback Wagon Limited, for $10k. This is
    a beautiful car, with just 33k miles, no dings or dents, and the interior is
    like new. I'm jealous. :)

    Anyway, the radio has a button for a CD changer, and I found the changer
    under the passenger seat. Neither he, nor the dealer, nor the original owner
    knew it was there...because it has never been hooked up! This is the real
    Subaru changer. Two questions...any idea how this could have happened? And,
    are there any wiring instrux out there so I can help my friend hook it up?

    John, should be a matter of finding the right connecting harness and
    instructions for that model. Your dealer should be able to research
    that and order it from Subaru. It was likely a Clarion brand radio head
    unit (that's what I had in my 99 Forester), so you would need a
    compatible cable. The HU probably has a CD changer port/jack on the
    back for the connector cable. I am even thinking maybe a car stereo
    place (like Best Buy) might have the right parts and be able to hook it
    up for your friend.

    You might also try posting this message on Edmunds and some other
    places where there are lots of Subaru readers. Maybe someone out there
    has the actual instructions for that MY and could share it with you.

    Good luck! -Karen-
