All Subaru Outback vehicles come standard with rear-window defoggers, but a malfunctioning rear-window defogger can be a hassle and a hazard on the road. Instead of taking your vehicle in for service, however, do some quick and easy home repairs first for basic solutions. You can service a rear-window defogger at home in just 30 minutes using a $15 repair kit available at any auto parts retailer.

Tools Used: Tools, Multimeter (optional), Permatex or other defogger repair kit

Locate the fuse box in the cabin of the vehicle. Consult your owner’s manual for a complete map of fuses if necessary, and check to see that the defogger fuse is in tact. Replace if necessary.
