What Does a Cabin Air Filter Do?

As you take your daily White Rock drives surrounded by poor air quality or dust from road constructions, the cabin air filter cleans the air that travels through the heating and cooling ventilation system into your vehicle. It’s intended to catch harmful pollutants & allergens like smog, mould, pollen, or dust and provide you with clean air during your time on the road.

Cabin Air Filter Change Frequency

Many drivers don’t even know they have a cabin filter, so it’s no wonder you’re wondering about how often to change a cabin air filter. Generally, filters should be replaced every 15,000 and 30,000 miles. However, that can vary depending on your vehicle and whether you participate in activities or work that requires driving on dirt or gravel roads around Richmond. Here are some signs that you should replace your filter:

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

When it’s time for a replacement, the general cabin air filter cost is around $30 to $70.

How To Change a Cabin Air Filter

The team at Mercedes-Benz Surrey is here for all your service needs, but if you prefer hands-on work, you can perform the replacement yourself:

  1. Locate where your cabin air filter is by checking your owner’s manual to determine where the filter is located. This will help determine how difficult the replacement will be.
  2. Most models have the cabin air filter located behind the glove box or under the hood for easy access, but some models filters are harder to reach if they’re located under the dashboard.
  3. To protect yourself from the caught pollutants, it’s a good idea to wear gloves and a face mask before removing the dirty air filter.
  4. Contain the mess by placing the old filter in a garbage bag and insert the new filter similarly to how it was removed. It’s best to use a genuine OEM part to ensure quality, durability, and fit.
