Does anyone have the Subaru part # for the oil filter for the 2005 3.0, 6 cyl.
My manual states it should be a black filter. I got a white one from the dealer.
Thanks.

The origional filter on the car is always black and seems a little smaller than the one you will replace it with. I just did my first change on my new OBS and this was the case. BTW, do not tighten the new one as much as the origional one....your knuckles will thank you.

As for part #'s go to ebay and do a search....there was a guy selling oem filters from a dealer down south...I believe he listed a PN with the auction.

Are you saying the the filter you replaced was white?

Anyone out there with the right part #? I was hoping to change the oil today. Thanks.

allsubaru.com states it is PN SOA5165109

What I was stating before is most likely the filter on the car now is black but if the new one is white that is OK as long as you bought it for an H6 (6 cyl) car you won't have a problem.

Thanks for the part number! It's a match. I wouldn't have had a problem if the Manual didn't mention the black vs white filters. And I couldn't call them back to double check until Monday. Again, Thanks for the help.

Are you sure? If so, I have the wrong one. Did they change something this year?

My Subaru dealer uses Quaker State products. If you are interested, the Quaker State part number for the H6 filter is QS3593A.
