    I have now found a filter I can confirm works well for the S/C EN07 Sambar.

    It is the NAPA FIL 3882 c/w bracket [needs to be adapted] or FIL 3597 w/o bracket.

    The application for this filter orginally was for a Suzuki Gran Vitara 99~05.

    See attached .pdfs of the NAPA parts.

    I take it that filter is only for the S/C EN07 ?

    The filter for a carbureted EN07 is much simpler, cheaper affair (NAPA Part# 3204). The trick is, the OE filter has a 7mm in/out tube size and the smallest I could find locally was 8mm. Taking off the old fuel filter was easy. It snaps into a springy clip near the back of the gas tank, and the hoses are spring-clipped as well, so a pair of needle-nosed pliers is all you need to remove it.

    Putting the larger in/out sized filter on was not really a problem when it was warm out, as the rubber gas line did stretch over the larger tube with a bit of force, however it may not work too well going back to the smaller one.

    The other thing about the filter I got from NAPA (see it at http://www.fleetfilter.com/filter/wix-fuel-filters/33204.html) it has a smaller body and I decided to throw a tie-wrap around it in the spring clip for security.

    i have used any typical auto gas in-line filter bought from auto zone or o'riellys. they are all about the same and way less expensive then the subaru branded filter. used a hose tie to keep it in place no big deal been on there for over a year without problems
