How To Locate the Paint Code on a Subaru Outback

Save

Using the right paint will help keep your Outback looking new when you touch up scratches and flakes. Each paint color is assigned a code that can be found on a small plate on the vehicle; bring that code with you when you go to buy touch-up paint at the store or online. Because the colors are manufactured not by color name but by paint code, it is important to find the code. This way, the touch-up paint you purchase is bound to match the color of your Outback.

  • Open the front passenger side door of your Subaru Outback made in 2008 or later, and look in the door jamb or along the edge of the door. This is one location for the paint code may be there.

  • Open the hood of your Subaru Outback made in 2008 or later, and locate the strut towers on both the driver’s and the passenger’s side. The paint code will be there as well.

  • Open the hood of your Subaru Outback made in 2007 or earlier, and locate the left (passenger’s side) strut tower in the engine bay area. The paint code is there. It will also be on the radiator support on the driver's side.
