Default Do 2006 forester xt's use oil screen on avcs and turbo banjo bolt?

UPDATE ON POST #7

What up guys. Ive been doing alot of searching and cant determine conclusively if 2006 forester xt's use the oil screen in the avcs banjo bolts and most especially in the banjo bolt behind the passenger head that supplies the turbo with oil. I know prior year fxt do indeed use the screens inside the bolts, so save me the banter. Just curious on the 06's, and any other MY's that dont use the oil screens.

I don't wanna have to remove a bunch of parts to access that last one (turbo side) if i dont have to.

From the factory? Yes it does. But unless you're the original owner for you to know the entire service history there's no way to know for sure that they haven't already been removed/replaced at some point already.

If you have the time and means to do it, it won't hurt but if you've kept up regular oil changes I wouldn't worry about it too much.

I texted the previous owner. He had motor rebuilt right before i bought it. He says he changed all of those bolts with new ones. Not sure if he also installed the screen inside or was even aware of this issue to be frank.

Not 100 percent on this, but at least on my 2017 sti the banjo bolts with the screens have a nub on top of them. Banjo bolts with no nubs = no screens.

So haven't posted on this thread in a while, but i checked the banjo bolts and they had flat top heads. No buldge on em. According to the theory they shouldn't have the screens inside them.

I sent my car to a shop to get clutch/ flywheel done and some other miscellaneous work done. I asked them to check for oil screens inside banjo bolts, if there were any, i told them to eliminate them. Ill report the findings

Update:
Took my car to a shop to get a bunch of work done to it, one of which was to remove all of the oil screens inside the banjo bolts (avcs & turbo).

Turned out my car only had one oil screen in total from all of the possible banjo bolts. The only banjo bolt that had it was on driver side by timing belt. The turbo oil feed line did not have an oil screen inside the banjo bolt.

Point of the story is dont assume* you're car has or doesn't have the stupid oil screen. Actually inspect, for the sake of your turbo and or motor.
