I have a 2000 RS and was told by the dealership's parts dept. that my car has an air filter for the cabin. Well, I thought I knew what I was doing... I knew where the filter would go to, only if I could get the filter cover out. Well, directions says there should be 2 screws a stubbed #2 Phillips screw driver can get to. One problem... no screws. It took me a whole 2 weeks to realize that there's no other screws under there (right under the glove compartment - next to AC unit). I ended up prying out the cover and cracking it :eek: Messed up, I was! I looked in with a small flashlight and there was no filter in the first place! What a load of :stinky: !!! Took it back and got my refund. Oh well, I could have gotten it installed for about $80 labor + $35 filter, but I guess I didn't need to since my car didn't have a filter already. Nice to know...

you can get the install kit, the dealer should have been smart enough to know that that's an option, the kit includes a new cover seeing as you have to cut out the old one. Check out Subaruparts.com

When I got the filter, it came with the filter (of course), instructions, and milage sticker. the instructions weren't as detailed as the one on scoobymods.com and didn't have as much pictures, but it was for the '98 Forrester, also. I guess if I don't need a kit, I'd use it for gas instead... :p
