Cabin Air Filter
Every part of your car works together to help it run as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Every part, no matter how big or small, contributes to the car health and getting you reliably from point A to point B. Your engine and cabin air filter falls under this category of being one of the smaller things and even more so, one of the things we often to put off to deal with later.
The cabin air filter has an essential role in filtering out pollutants from getting into your vehicle’s cabin. This can be particularly important when it comes to those who suffer from allergies. The cabin air filter catches all the debris and contaminants from the outside to provide a comfortable ride for everyone inside.
Replacing Your Cabin Air Filter
The cabin air filter can usually be found behind the glove compartment or in other cases, under the dashboard. Like we said before, it’s a primary function is to keep pollutants and even mold spores from entering your cabin. Along with helping to improve the air quality in your car, it can also help prevent costly and entirely preventable repairs down the road.
When one part of your car is overused and not performing as well as it should, other parts have to help out. When left at this status for too long, it can lead to other parts breaking down unexpectedly.
How often do you need to replace it?
We recommend coming in for it to be replaced once every 15,000 to 25,000 miles – which can roughly translate to about once a year. This can vary by factors such as where you live and the conditions you drive in the most. Every driver should always consult their owner’s manual for interval recommendations, or come by to ask our certified technicians any additional questions.
Though a lot of people can perform this job as a DIY at-home type of project, we recommend coming in if you aren’t sure how exactly to do it. Doing it yourself is always an option, but can come with risks of not installing or putting it back together properly.Schedule Service
