HI,

2006 Subaru Outback F4-2.5L SOHC

Fuel Filter SPECIFICATION Fuel filter forms a single unit with fuel pump. Refer to "Fuel Pump" for removal and installation.

So, unless the fuel pump has ever been replaced, it has not been changed since it is integrated into the pump and you replace as an assembly. The only time you need to replace it is if the fuel pressure is weak or the fuel pump fails, otherwise you dont replace it as a maintenance item.
