Default oil change

I like the concept, but can`t see any access doors to reach the oil filter . My Outback 3.0 has the tray, but includes a swinging door for oil changes. Am I missing that in the photo ?

I have a few places that I check for import OEM and work the numbers as to who to buy from depending on fluctuating prices, shipping costs and promotions. I've even split orders to play the numbers game.

Welcome to the online shop of the genuine car parts pro’s

In my experience its usually cheaper to buy direct from a foreign shop than to pay a local's markup. Its a nice convenience, but if you can find your own part numbers, you can probably work a better deal.

No, no access door, but its only held on by 4 easily accessible bolts and 2 clips. Seeing as how the filter and drain are in 2 different places, not too much more hassle to drop the whole thing.

Interesting side note, that is the GD 6-speed tray that interfaced perfectly with the GC engine tray using the OEM fastenings. Even clears the Cusco H-brace with no modification. I did shave a little bit off a lip for the GT-Spec cross brace, it's intended for GD, so I don't fault them. They were nice enough to put in the 2 threaded holes to mount the tray.

Thanks for all the info. It sounds like USDM is a no go. I am not sure we will go to the level of rokketride and bring in JDM parts but if we do I now have the PNs. THX.
