Part number# 21896AA072

Only ones I've seen on the net are in the US. Might be worth giving Subaru UK a ring wouldn't have thought they'd be expensive

Just about to say the same you can buy gasket paper in most motor factors here and just cut out shape and job done

Re: where can i get a BOV gasket??

i rang today and the bloke said he'll ring round and call me back. No call back today though. So im guessing youre right. Strange that theres none made by third parties.
I might cut and ebay some ;-)
