Carpet replacement

Post by mike-tracy »

I want to hear from people who have attempted this, not speculation please.

The Baja has unique part numbers for it's carpets. How close to fitting are carpets from other Subaru model? There's an ~02 Legacy sedan in the junkyard with nearly mint carpet, and I'd like to use it or one from a different car if there's one that fits better.

I actually just did this. I found a used Baja carpet on eBay and actually dyed it black and installed it. The dying was messy but it came out really well. I do know of another Baja near me that did and H6 swap out of an '07 outback and installed the dash and center console and the carpet. The carpet installed pretty well but he said it had some loose fitting issues over the tunnel by the seats. He did have to remove the the plastic mounting pieces from the baja carpet and secure them to the outback carpet. I'll add some pics of the dyed carpet I installed. If you are interested in doing yourself let me know and I can give you a quick write up for you.

Thanks for the post. I didn't see any used Baja carpets available, but I do like how yours came out after dyeing the fabric.


Has anyone tried a 3rd gen legacy carpet in a baja?
