I don't have a Forester, I have a Sunseeker, but to get to the connector on mine I had to take the trim down in the back where the ceiling and wall meet. It wasn't tough just have to be careful and take your time. On mine the reason the connector wouldn't come through the hole was when they finished the back interior wall the connector was sandwiched between the rear fiberglass outer wall and the interior paneling. Had to be careful prying that out too. Mine was just a weak connection that was intermittent so I reinforced it with a piece of clear tubing sliced down one side, wrapped around the connector and secured with a couple wire ties. I then wrapped that in a piece of pipe wrap. Never had another issue.
