I got a hepa filter from the dealer for $35 about a year ago and drove on a seriously dusty logging road 8" of fine dust!!! plumes of this stuff came through without the fan on!! wholly SH**!!! I was pissed.

I took it out and low and behold Subaru has stuped top a new low!! There are no seals around the preforations(V's) and the housing! thats as cheap as it gets!! I had to modify and wrap with dryer sheets along the edges and silicacone all the preforations. What a pain! I simply used compressed air to clean out the debris and voila like new! You're crazy to pay $35 for an new one every year . I think Subaru can do better!!!:eek:

I haven't ever changed my filter. Where is it located? I've been looking for a location and the user's manual points at the windshield which is no help.
