Subaru Legacy Owners Manual: Engine hood

  •  When you open the engine hood, do not stand the wiper blades up.

    Furthermore, while the hood is open, do not operate the windshield wipers. Doing so could result in damage to the engine hood and wiper blades.

  •  Be extremely careful not to catch fingers or other objects when closing the engine hood.
  •  Do not push the hood forcibly to close it. It could deform the metal.
  •  Be extremely careful opening the engine hood when the wind is strong. The engine hood could close suddenly, possibly causing injuries from slamming.
  •  Do not install accessories other than genuine SUBARU parts to the engine hood. If the engine hood becomes too heavy, the stay may not be able to support holding it open.

To open the hood:

  1.  If the wiper blades are lifted off the windshield, return them to their original positions.

  2. Lift up the hood.

To close the hood:

  1.  Lower the hood to a height of approximately 5.9 in (15 cm) above its closed position and then throw it down.
  2.  After closing the hood, be sure the hood is securely locked.

If this does not close the hood, release it from a slightly higher position.

WARNING Always check that the hood is properly locked before you start driving. If it is not, it might fly open while the vehicle is moving and block your view, which may cause an accident and serious bodily injury.
