What Do Cabin Air Filters Do? 

Cabin air filters prevent pollutants, pollen, dust, and other forms of debris and external contaminants from entering your vehicle’s cabin. This filtration does wonders for the vehicle’s overall air quality, creating a more pleasant travel experience for you and your passengers. Typically, the cabin air filter is located behind a vehicle’s glovebox.

Why Replace Your Cabin Air Filter? 

Over time, cabin air filters will become full of debris. Once clogged, the filter will not be able to clean the incoming air as effectively. That’s why it’s important for drivers to take their vehicle in for routine cabin air filter changes, to ensure their cabin’s air quality remains contaminant-free. Typically, automotive professionals suggest replacing a cabin air filter every 24,000 to 48,000 kilometres.
