read this recent topic - New to Subaru - 2008 Premier with 155k miles - love it... - dudes interest was very similar to yours.
Does it matter if filters are OEM? Only reason I ask is the only place online I can find them has $50 shippingdo NOT forget ALL the filters. especially in transmission
Oh great, i like bosch too thats where my family takes there cars.well... that's a bit of "which religion is best" type of thing.
1) OEM stuff has undergone superior quality control (like - "oh, chinese stuff is crap", while quite a LOT of stuff gets manufactured there, the only difference between aliexpress and OEM is quality control).
2) there are a lot of brands which names mean (at least to me) quality - bosch, denso, mann...
3) some stuff you just CAN'T buy OEM (facelifted Tribeca transmission (TG5D) - sump filter, not sure about prefacelift (TG5C))...
in this situation - you are in wild wild west anyway ))
you are one lazy bum

Man you're full of knowledge and have a big help for me! Really appreciate it.Under Cover & Exhaust Cover - 2008 Subaru Tribeca - here are originals with part numbers. but check pricing with your subaru dealer.
you can save a bit of money going to autozone/oreillies/advance auto parts/napa or whatever stores you have around - just measure them first or even better - take samples(from the car) with you. and keep in mind there might be few different sizes.
but it's not rocket science for sure
p.s. you can also check that you have both sides of vehicle L-shaped profiles underneath the car, in front of wheel arches. mine was missing on one side.
Oh yeah I forgot about the fuel filter, will add that to the list!happy to help
throttle body removal - check for typical crack on intake manifold.
transmission - filter/filters! you will probably have to get them yourself.
also - think about fuel filter
That sucks man hopefully nothing too serious!might throw in fuel pressure regulator and check the pump as well
p.s. but most important - check-check-check... today i sadly realized that nissan dealership I hate - have new guy, he has done things which NOBODY cared before... unfortunately he did some little fuckups all around too
ah chunks, was hoping it wouldn't be that way lol. Is it hard to get into the tank?there is no fuel filter under the hood (that I know off) - post the video (probably some newer or older year outbacks with H6 engines).
I am talking about the one in tank.
