Exclamation Trouble with new oil filter 15208AA09A - DETAILS INSIDE

10/12/05
Subaru has issued (snipped) the following statement:

Quote:
Please be advised that oil filter, part number 15208AA09A, may potentially exhibit a small amount of seepage that is noticed during the installation process.

Although seepage is slight, we are requesting that all inventory of this part number be removed from stock immediately.....

No official recall of the product for the consumer at this time

BUT....
I have learned the following.

suspected bad batch numbers:
your oil filters should have a series number stamped on them
if you have one of the following series numbers,
then your filters are suspect of this seepage issue
  1. F08
  2. F09
  3. F10

One would think you should be able to exchange them for a known "good" oil filter at any Subaru Dealership, but again, there is no known official recall at this time.

That's all I have for an update at this moment.....
