How Often Do I Change a Cabin Air Filter?

Hand removing cabin air filter

Can’t remember the last time you changed your cabin air filter? But, how often should you change a cabin air filter? Typically, auto industry experts recommend the cabin air filter should be changed every 15,000 miles, however, exact scheduled changes depend on the model. The vehicle’s owner’s manual has a recommended maintenance schedule, or talk to the technicians in our service center for recommendations based on driving habits and driving conditions around Nickerson.

Cabin Air Filter

What does a cabin air filter do? It helps maintain a good air quality for the vehicle’s interior. A cabin air filter works to remove dirt, dust, pollen, and other contaminants from the air that pass through the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system. Eventually, these filters get clogged and lower the interior air quality, so it’s important to often change a cabin air filter.

Signs It’s Time to Change Cabin Air Filter

Change frequency can depend on the driving environment. Vehicles’ filters will need more frequent changing if drivers are in cities with a lot of construction or low air quality, or there are Buhler commuters who drive on dirt roads, or adventurers who love off-roading. These are some interior signs to look out for:

  1. Reduced air flow when climate control systems are on
  2. Lingering unpleasant odors
  3. Increasing dust settling on vehicle surfaces

Tips For Changing a Cabin Air Filter

Newton drivers who like doing DIY projects on their car might be interested in changing the cabin air filter themselves. Keep these tips in mind:

  1. The vehicle’s owner’s manual will identify where the filter is located and will help determine how difficult it is to replace.
  2. It’s often accessible behind the glove box or under the hood, but may be located under the dashboard and can be difficult to reach.
  3. Wear a mask and gloves to prevent inhaling and touching the dirty air filter.
  4. Safely dispose of the filter in a garbage bag, and replace it with a new genuine OEM filter to ensure the quality and durability.
