Are dealers being required to notify owners who bought these defective filters or had them installed during an oil change? I would hope so, otherwise they might (should IMO) be liable for any resulting engine damage.

no.
once again
this is NOT A CONSUMER recall (yet?)

there are no gushing leaks, only seepage
and not enough to cause you to fry your engine.

Deja Vu. Didn't this argument take place when the AA060's were replaced by the AA080's?

I really can't see how the bigger AA060 is going to get that much hotting bering close to the exhaust. How long is the oil in the filter, a few seconds at most? Plus, it is white and not black.

IIRC the AA060 were the original filters for the WRX. I went thru a case of those with no problems.

I just looked and I put on an F08.

Here's my dumb question: How much oil should I add after swapping the filter? I've never changed a filter w/o changing the oil...

And thanks for the info, Jamie!

Good thing you posted this! I just checked because I have the F08R05E1 filter. I've put about 1k miles and it is leaking. I'll have to get a new one from the dealer tomorrow. I hope these are only a bad batch of filters.

Thanks

The part number, once again: IS THE SAME & will not change:

15208AA09A


the SERIAL number is what you need to check.
this is on the filter itself.

if it starts with F08, F09 or F10

then the filter is under dealer recall.
and you should be able to get a replacement

Two things I did note between the two different filters (100 vs. 09A).
  • The 100 (Black version) was definitely larger than the 09A (white version)
  • The 09A does not have a pressure relief valve in the center bore like the 100 and every other Subaru OEM filter that I've ever used (a lot since 1974)
I purchased my 09A filter about a month ago so I'll bet that it's seeping. I too do the start and check but noticed no drips, leaks or seeps. That said, I did have some oil smell after a 350 mile trip back from Phoenix two weeks ago that has since stopped. Probably collecting on the top of the undercover now that I'm not motivating at highway speeds. Will check tonight.

If it is seeping, I'll be taking it back to the dealer?

Is there someplace the specific serial numbers are documented? I bought two from my local dealer last weekend. They were aware of the problem with the filters and indicated that they pulled all the problem filters yet when I bought the filters they were F10 serial numbers. When I called back, they said that they were only selling the 'new' shipment from Subaru and they didn't know what serial numbers were effected. I'd like to get new filters but if I can't convince them the ones I have are bad, I don't think they're going to give me new ones!

I think you can trust Jamie to give you the right stuff. You apparently have the "bad" filters. I would take them back and check the serial #'s on the new filters you get before you take them.

While *I* trust this information, my dealer may look at it and say, 'well, our supplier said all the filters in this box are good, so who am I going to believe?'

Just ask the dealer to put it in writing that they are good so you know who to turn to for travel time/cost reimbursement if they turn out to be bad.
