Default 2008 OBS cabin air filter

sorry for having posted this elsewhere, but the location of the big cabin air filter thread didn't get me any answers, so i shall post here (which seems more appropriate and is now possible that i have surpasses the magical 3 posts):

hello, i have a 2008 OBS...i went to change out the cabin air filter and the thing i pulled out was completely different than the replacement filter that i purchased. the one in the car has a plastic frame and clips in...the replacement filter is just this paper accordion filter...is there some sort of adapter needed or what? thanks in advance.

i got a replacement filter that was listed several places including the book at advance and multiple websites as the correct filter...but it's nothing like the original.

I had the same problem going to the local autoparts stores. They'd simply take my vehicle make and year ('08 wrx) and plug it into their machine, then bring out the wrong filter which was simply paper, no plastic. When I showed them it didn't match the large plastic one I was replacing they'd simply scratch their heads, but I did get a refund.

My solution was to drive back to the Subaru dealer I got the car from. Picked up the cabin filter for less than the auto-parts stores were charging me for the wrong one.

thanks for the input. i think that i will go return it...but not buy one at the dealer; i checked and they're asking like $45 for one. the thing i bought at advance was $24 and i did more searching looks like i can get oem part online for even less than that.

I have an 07, but when I was looking for that filter, nobody had it except NAPA, and it fit perfectly, so you might want to try there.
