I've an '03 Outback Wagon with the air filtration system for interior air.

Does anyone know where the filter is located and how to change it?

Thanks

On the '04 Forester it's shown in my owner's manual, I have to remove nine (9) screws and pull out the glove box to access the filter!! Really stupid.

Unless they have changed it for your model it is accessed from the passenger footwell. Two screws hold in a plastic cover, about an inch wide and eight inches long. The filter element slides up and down in rails.

You will need a short screwdriver.

The last two times I've replaced my filter, the directions with pictures were included in the box. (This was an OEM filter bought from the dealer, I don't know if there are any aftermarket ones available.)

I am curious, where is the cabin air filter for the 95 legacy wagon?

You might not have one Novo. Check the driver door frame for a sticker that indicates the service interval for the filter.
