Default Cabin air filter for 2005 Impreza RS

Hello everyone,

My car was in the shop for 24,000 km service. My mechanic told me this week that a cabin air filter is missing in my 2005 Impreza RS. I called Subaru Canada who told me that the cabin air filter does not come with the car and that it has to be purchased by the owner. I was actually quite surprised to hear that.

Where would be a good place (in calgary or on the web) to buy a basic cabin air filter and how much would it cost?

My mechanic says about $95 plus installation.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Whoa...first off, I think they are cheaper from subarugenuineparts.com, and second...don't pay them to install it. It's apparently a few screws, and like a 10min. job. I have done them before on my VW's, not difficult!

SubieDrift is right, here's some instructions that should be the same for an '05:

I noticed you have a sport edition 2.5RS, I would have assumed they included it in the sport package. I think you can pickup the cabin filter kit for maybe $30-45 USD online, if you were to buy it locally I would just make a ball park figure of 80+ CAD that a dealer would charge without installation .

Yeah, that's about right.

Personally, I just buy one of those Filtrete Ultra Allergen furnace filters from Home Depot and throw it on the office paper cutter, which yields 9 filters for about $30. If anybody wants some for the old GC/GM/GF series cars, I have a few extras -- hit me up if you want ...

Thank you everyone for your help.

I went to the website and did a search for air filter and came up with:

https://www.subarugenuineparts.com/a...lter&x=10&y=13

For Impreza, there are 2 relevant air filters:
1. STi Air Filter Element ($64.75)
2. Subaru OEM Engine Air Filter Impreza (short) ($10.94)

I am not quite sure which one is the right one.... Or maybe, I have the completely wrong part???? The description for the second one does not say it's good for 2005...

Do I have the right part? Sorry to bug you again.

Thank you.

Steven
