Trailer Wiring Harness and Hitch Installation Hardware for 1996 Subaru Legacy


Hello I will need a wiring harness. I already have a hitch, but am wondering if you can sell me 3 of the small spacer blocks and one hex flange nut/bolt?

We can help you with both a wiring harness and hitch installation hardware for your 1996 Subaru Legacy.

If your Legacy is the Outback Wagon you can use TowReady wiring harness # 118461 which is a custom-fit harness that simply plugs in to your tail lights. If you do not have the Outback wagon then instead you will use universal-fit harness kit # 119147KIT. Installation videos for both are linked for your reference.

The trailer hitch you referenced, Curt # C12270, is a 1-1/4-inch Class II type and we do offer a complete installation hardware kit for it. Please note that hitch hardware is single-use; it cannot be removed and re-used . All you need to do to get the correct hardware kit for your hitch is enter part # RHK into our search box, and then indicate the hitch item number and hitch brand. We'll then put together for you the exact hardware originally supplied by the manufacturer. The individual hardware items are not offered for this hitch.

For reference I have linked for you two articles with helpful tips for hitch installation as well as a video showing installation of this Curt hitch in an Outback Wagon. A torque wrench is needed to ensure the fasteners are tightened to the values specified in the instructions, which are also linked for you.
