    AC Air filter

    I dont think the AC airfilter has ever been changed on my 04 WRX (just got it a month ago).

    I am at 68K and going to change it this weekend...anyone know if there could be anything damaged by the AC airfilter not being changed in 4 years?

    Also, why does my owners manual say not to use a fuel injection cleaner...any help here would be appreciated

    Thanks!

    I have never changed (or heard of) an AC air filter - and never had any problems. Is this the same thing as a cabin filter? I haven't ever changed that either.

    The manual says they are suppose to be changed every year, or it slows the airflow through your AC.

    Check out what those old filters look like in the thread I posted above. Once you see that you will rush out to change yours!

    Once a year is almost not enough. Mine is a bit overdue.
