How to Install a Wiring Harness for a Trailer on a 2007 Subaru Forester


Today we are going to install part number 118461, we will be using this on a 2007 Subaru Forester. The first step involved with installing is taking off some of the interior panels and getting down to the floor. So we have to get down to the bottom where we can see the wiring and well trace it back to find the connector. This panel comes off first, followed by the panel underneath, and then this panel comes up. Now we have gotten to our wire harness, now we need to find the connector. Once we find our harness, well follow that back to the tail light as the instructions say, you look around and here is the plug right here. As a note this plug can be found on different models and years possibly further up here towards the front. You could also find them on the other side, just check the instructions before you start.

Go ahead and install it, then well show you where to put the module box at. What well do is install the module box along the body panel back here, clean this area off, let it dry, and then well use the adhesive to hold it into place. The wire will be kept inside the tire well, so it wont get pushed on or anything like that. Pull your wire harness as if you were going to use it, and well re-install the interior components. There you have it, when you need to use it, just pull it out and shut the hatch on it. The door hatch will not harm the wiring. When you are storing it, put it underneath the cover here, this nice little pocket or off to the side, and you are good to go. Your install is complete the wiring has been left out to show you how its going to be used in its towing position. The wire will be safe as the door wont smash it, just hide it underneath the cover and you are good to go.
