SOURCE: Fuel Filter for a 2005 Subaru Outback

In 2005 Subaru moved the fuel filters to the fuel tank for both 4-cyl and 6-cyl cars. What is confusing is the statement in the owner's manual about replacement intervals; the statement actually only applies to 4-cyl cars. Even though the filter is mounted in the tank, this is still a replaceable element on 4-cyl, but not on 6-cyl. The 6-cyl filter element is part of the entire fuel pump assembly (a $300 assembly) and is not sold separately. Therefore the 6-cyl filter is intended to be a "lifetime" part, which really means it gets replaced when the fuel pump fails and the entire pump assembly is replaced.

I can't find the fuel filter on my 2004 Subaru Outback h4


Hi Joey, 2004 was a changeover period for fuel filter location....depending what month your Subaru was built, the pre 2004 models had the filter mounted under the bonnet in front of the brake cylinder, 2005 onwards is in the fuel tank!

I cant locate the fuel filter in my outback 2002


Hi,

The fuel filter is inside the tank of your car. This is located under the passenger seat in the back.

It is just a small filter inside the fuel tank.

Happy Motoring

How do you replace a fuel filter on a 2003 subaru outback 4cyl 2.5 litre


The filer is located on the left side of the engine compartment by the strut tower. Usually it is held on by just a snap type clip or in some cases you will have to loosen the screw that simply holds the filter tight by a clamp. You will need a phillips head screwdriver, loosen the three hose clamps on the top of filter to three fuel lines.carefully pull the hoses off the fittings and reverse the proceedure. Have a rag handy to claen up your mess if needed. Also dont over tighten the clamps when installing, they are pretty cheap. let your car run for a minute or two, shut it off and check for leaks. Hope this helps ya, please let me know.
