Default NAPA Now Carries Cabin Air Filters for 02-07 Impeza

Yes, I know this the OT and not about Subarus, but nobody reads the maintenance forum and most people outside of OT only care about modifying their cars for mad tyte performance, bro.

I looked all over the place for a replacement cabin air filter for my Impreza, the only place (other than online) that I found was NAPA Auto Parts. Part number is FIL4485. I changed mine after a couple years and it had a lot of "stuff" in it.

22 dorra for something that's useless as soon as you roll the windows down? Score!

I believe a lot of people don't open the windows when its 20* out and they're going 70 on the highway, so it may be useful

that's the cheapest that i could find, other than buying a home A/C filter and cutting it to size.

I think that even Advance and Autozone carry filters for Outbacks.

Hmmm I should look into that. I have 80,000 miles on my 02 and have never changed it. I don't really it drive it anymore though.

I usually do twice a year. DC is a dirty place and living in the country doesn't help either. I saw one once that was in a car for 60k miles, it was black and full of all kinds of junk.

I am pretty sure they make a big difference, but YMMV.

I found the instructions for the OB. I never did change mine in my WRX, maybe that's why.

Congrats. I bought the same damn things for $6.00 each from my super secret connection.


They arrived 2 days after I ordered them.

Okay, now it all comes together. I'm going to give this a try if I can find a NAPA around (or the same part at Murray's or something)

I think I'm going the furnace filter route...6 filter for $10 is quite a deal.

you have to take out the glovebox and the trim piece on the right side of it.
There are like 9-10 screws that you have to take our. Most of them are located in the top part of glovebox trim when you open it. Only 2 screws are located in the bottom of the trim piece/glovebox. I just took out all the screws that looked the same in that general area. Also take out the plastic pin on the dashboard trim that's facing the door when it is closed.

There is a lot of junk on the old filter, so when you take that out your car is weighs less, therefore making it faster.

from my limited research, the filter was optional in 02/03.
