What is a cabin filter and how do I change it?

Today, most vehicles on the road have a cabin air filter installed to help keep the vehicle air clean and fresh. These air filters help prevent harmful pollutants, including pollen and dust, from getting into the air you breathe

If you don’t change your cabin air filter, the filter will become more clogged with dirt and debris and the efficiency of the filter and your car’s HVAC system will be compromised. The air volume into your passenger compartment will be continually reduced which will lead to the issue of foul odors inside your car.

Cabin air filters typically cost between $15 and $50. If you can pull off replacing it yourself, you can save as much as $50 in labour costs. Though your cabin air filter is out of sight, it shouldn’t be out of mind.

Here are some of the warning signs of a bad cabin air filter:

  1. Musty or mouldy smells inside the car.
  2. Reduced air flow through the interior vents.
  3. Foggy or icy windows take much longer to clear.
  4. A whistling noise coming from the air vents.
  5. Allergy symptoms increase during longer rides in your car.
