Solved the problem myself. Have to disassemble rear panels inside rear hatch until you find cable leading to gas tank door. About a hour or two. Replug plastic unit that opens gas door. Later glued it in place so this may not happen again.

The blower on your 2005 subaru outback is very loud even when on low Why is this?

I am having the same problem with my 2005 Outback. Apparently water is able to get into the cabin from a faulty seal someplace (I'm guessing the windshield gasket) and the water has leaked onto the heater fan and caused the bearings to rust. This is what is causing the noise. It is important to make sure the leak is fixed before you repair the fan. Anyone else out there having the same problem?
