Today I installed the OEM hitch that has been sitting in my shed for over a year and came to a stumbling point with the harness connection. The harness provided is a 6 pin plug and the one on the car is an 8 pin plug with 7 wires. The part number of the trailer wiring harness is L1010SS030. Do I have the wrong part number for a '09 Forester XT Limited? Thanks for the help.

I have a much older model year but.. I had a very similar issue when installing a hitch on my 03 foz. I could find a plug similar to what you have found but did not plug in. It turned out the the appropriate plug is very well hidden and tucked behind the wiring harness as it heads up the passenger rear most pillar. With any luck you have the same issue. Good luck!

Thanks for the reply. This was on the drivers side so I'll take a better look tomorrow.

Well I got an answer back from Subaru parts and my kit was shipped with the incorrect harness. If anyone else runs into this problem the correct harness is L101SSC010.
