Default WRX Oil Filter

I'll be doing the first oil change on my 02 WRX soon and I'd like to know if anyone has a part # for an aftermarket oil filter, or is it still dealer-only? Thanks.

Thanks, I may get the OEM filter but I was trying to find out if there is one available yet from Fram, Purolator, etc.

The filter that you buy from Subaru is made by Purolator. It says so on the filter. I just buy the Purolator part, #L14460.

It's true that Purolator makes the oil filters that Subaru sells. And it's also true that the Purolator L14460 fits perfectly. However, the Purolator brand filter is not identical to the Subaru brand filter. I think the Subaru brand filter has a slightly better construction and that's what I use. I can't see the point of scrimping when the Subaru part is only about $5.

I'm not sure what the part number is, but the K&N oil filter has a cross reference to a Purolator oil filter. So if you know the part number to the purolator, you can find out which k&n to use. Of course, it takes time having to look at all of the boxes until you find the right one.

K&N HP-1004. It's really heavy (so it must be good!)

www.autobarn.net has them, but you have to fill in their special order page.

Just found this post because I was doing a search for the oil filter part number and figured that I would warn some of you who obviously are not aware.

**Stay away from Fram filters at all costs. They are the worst piece of crap filter made.**

just changed my oil today. Used the subaru oil filter off that i got from subaruparts.com.

fits perfectly (15208 AA060). Thing is, the one that came off was a blue one and about 1/8 inch shorter than the replacement. It was 15208 AA024.

Just put about 15 miles on it..seems good so far.

Also installed my Fumoto Valve. Very nice piece of equipment.

...and the modding continues...

Just changed my oil for the first time today, also!!!

Question: I replaced the crush washer as Subaru recommends, BUT...

The crush washer I got from the dealer doesn't really look like it fits quite right. I haven't had any leaking (knock on wood) but it seems off center. Is this okay? Anyone?

God I love crawling under my car! Would be even better if I had a lift!!!

crush washer? was that the little metal thingy that came with the filter? where did you put it on at? i got one...and wasn't sure where to put it...so i put it in the most logical place i could see...the pipe thingy coming down from the center of where the oil filter tube comes down. Seemed to fit ok and no leaks at all...

The crush washer goes on the oil drain plug. Not anywhere by the oil filter

hmmm....doh.



well,..hehe..too late now i guess. I'll just have to monitor the oil filter and make sure nothing leaks off it.

I installed a fumoto valve today as well, so i'm not even using the normal drain plug.

thanks for the info!

The blue oil filter is different because it is a Japanese made part. We get filters made by Purolator in the good 'ol US of A.

As a side note, I think Subaru used a gorilla to tighten my oil filter and drain plug.

Best thing to do is to order a dozen crush washers from one of the dealers that sell OEM parts at a discount.

www.newsubaru.com or www.subaruparts.com or sugar. They're around 40 cents each.

I got a dozen from Sugar not too long ago the Part number is 11126AA000 Also, here is a handy tool for getting off very stuborn oil filters. You can fit a 3/8" ratchet on it. The tighter you go the more it clamps down on the filter. I got it at a local auto store:
