If you use a filter with a plastic frame and cut it to 8x7 it fits(with a bit of bending) perfectly.....I made one out of those 5 year electrostatic filters and it fits like a glove.....kind of a pita to make, but.....

There is no mention of a cabin air filtration system in any of the paperwork for my '02 WRX Wagon and the plastic panel behind the glove box looks solid rather than like a removable filter cover.
Was this system an option on the '02? Do I have to remove the glove box to be sure?
Many thanks, as I'm nearly the only one here in Central Mexico.

It was an option on the US spec Imprezas, but the panel is a door that flips open to insert the optional filter. The glove box must be removed to open the panel. If your panel is fixed and does not open, then you cannot install a filter.

If you didn't buy the option with the car, can you still install a filter? Or is there a housing to go with it that I don't have?

Yes you can. The filter "kit" is just the filter itself and a sticker for the door. The housing is already there.

Ok, glad I didn't, since IIRC, it was a $130 option. :P I may get one and drop it in then.

.....that's the precise reason I opted to purchase and install all of the options I wanted on my own (i.e. alarm, auto dim/compass mirror, armrest ext, cabin filter, etc.). Each came with detailed instructions and were basically "plug and play".

I used a Bosch Premium Cabin Filter #P3875(hepa,micronic),I got 2 on the net for 15.00$ free shipping.They are listed for a Honda V6 Accord 04,I layed the old filter over the new one,took pencil and made a line to cut off excess.I had to trim like 1.5 inches off but the hieght was exact.Just thought I would share this info. if someone was is a jam,My Subaru dealer was out and I needed one fast(had apart,glove box),had these around for other car(girlfriend).
