05 Subaru Legacy Cabin Filter - Where to get them?

Recommended Posts

Just pulled the Cabin Filter out of my 05 BPE Legacy wagon and it was rather disgusting and I don't believe has been changed in some time.

Just wanting to know if you guys know where to source a replacement - OEM or something better.

Pics of current one after a brief clean but still filthy.

Surely it's a generic size you can just pick up at superrepco. I always just wash mine, not quite as good as new but can't be F'd finding replacement ones.

Try ebay. When i had a bmw i got a set off there for less than $20. Presume they have subaru too. Won't be quite as high quality but likely to be significantly cheaper!

I could probably get you a Sakura one through work. I just cross referenced Ryco part # RCA152C and it seems like the right one.

Did a quick calculation and it would be around $10+gst. Not sure how good that price is compared to retail?

Will need to wait till I'm in the office to get confirmed pricing etc and to see if i have any stock out in our branches.

If you're keen flick me a PM to remind me and I'll have a look into it for you.

Yeah that sounds about right if you go genuine.

BH are like $85 trade last time I checked, well over $100 retail haha. The only place that could physically match one was partmaster for $25 I think... Took a bit of hunting out

Genuine BH/BE was around $70, not even charcoal. Stock BL/BP is not charcoal either and is about the same $$. Got a washable Blitz in mine, pretty happy how it performs and was cheaper than stock to start with.

Cheers guys, I hit Winger up via email to get a ball park figure for one - $71 + GST

I'll do a little digging to find something cheaper.

Sorry to thread jack but I couldn’t get one from Repco for my 2008 GRB STI hatch because apparently they didn’t stock them for cars 2008 or newer (wtf right?).

Anyone know where I can get one? Found them on ebay for very cheap but can’t be bother waiting.
