Forester Cabin Air Filter
Posted 22 July 2003 - 10:06 AM
One thing caught my eye however. It says you should replace the cabin air filter. Since I know my model has one, I called the dealer up to see how much the filter was. They quoted me $55! I figured this must be a mistake, since the part needs to be changed every year. Since I live in a fairly dusty area and my fiance has allergies, I figure I need to replace it. The parts person told me he doubts it should be changed every year, and said I probably mis-read the manual (which I didn't)
Is this price normal? I figured it would be a $10 filter not $55! Is there any place online I can grab the filter for cheaper?

2. There is a guy posting on alt.autos.subaru that has a scheme for making his own reusable filter. You might be able to do that or email him if he is offering kits or something.
I will face this too with my new OBW and I may try to make some filters.
I think there is some online step-by-step pricedure photos too.
