The Impreza is one of the heavy-hitters in Subaru’s line of automobiles, and anyone who owns a “Scooby” will have a delight running them on- or off-road. However, the long hours and miles of driving can take its toll on the car, particularly the air quality through the cabin air filter. Some motorists admit that cabin air filters are one of the most ignored yet important parts of the car and if yours is long overdue for a replacement, you can get to work by swiping the old, dirty one for a new Baldwin cabin air filter.
A check of the Baldwin catalog at your preferred auto supplies dealer will help you with finding the specific unit for your Impreza. For instance, the cab filter model PA4408 is designed for Imprezas from the 2002 to 2010 model years.
Changing the Filter
Start by opening the glove compartment dashboard then remove the screws and a retaining clip on the side. Empty the compartment of any objects as well. Set the glove box cover, the screws, and the retaining clip aside. Remove and set aside the filter housing then you can gradually slide the cabin air filter out of the hold. Safely throw away the old filter and install the new one. Reattach the retaining clip and glove box cover.
Cabin air filters typically need to be replaced every 12,000 to 15,000 miles. A new filter will ensure that you’re breathing clean, fresh air inside your car.
