VEHICLE SERVICING PERFORMED BY UNTRAINED PERSONS COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY TO THOSE PERSONS OR TO OTHERS.
Subaru Service Bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians ONLY. They are written to inform those technicians of conditions that may occur in some vehicles, or to provide
information that could assist in the proper servicing of the vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do the job correctly and safely.
If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that this Service Bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition.
SERVICE BULLETIN
11/17/99
Effective with vehicles produced on or after September 1, 1999, in accordance with Federal Motor
Vehicle Safety Standard 225, all Subaru vehicles will be equipped with top tether anchor hooks for use
with forward facing child restraint seats and booster seats. All 2000 model year Subaru vehicles will be
equipped in production with 3 top tether anchor hooks. The tether strap that connects the top of the
child restraint to the anchor hook must be supplied by the manufacturer of the child restraint.
TOP TETHER ANCHOR KITS FOR OLDER MODELS
This new requirement for 2000 model year vehicles may cause customer demand for installation of top
tether anchor kits on earlier model vehicles. You should be prepared to install these factory supplied top
tether anchor kits on customer request in 1985 and later Subaru vehicles. Anchor kits are not available
for 1987 and 1988 Justy models (which began in 1989MY) in accordance with the attached Chart 1.
Installation instructions are included with the anchor kit. Anchor points are shown in Figures 1 through 5
for all models. On 1995 through 1999 Legacy Sedan vehicles, the package shelf material is not cut out
at the anchor pint location. You must locate the threaded anchor point from the trunk side of the
package shelf and cut out the package shelf material to accommodate the anchor kit bolt.
