Default Sw33t L0rd Ch@nge Y0ur Cab1n Filt3r!!!

So I have been meaning to change my cabin filter, but I hadn't gotten around to it. I changed it this past weekend and...

O..

M..

G..

It was DISGUSTING. I can't beleive all the garbage that was sitting in there, the pictures don't do it justice. Just trust me, people. Change this thing.

Now.






Yeah....I know.

Some dealers don't include this in the "mileage services", plus they charge a ridiculous amount for it. Buy one on ebay and do it yourself, they suggest yearly. It's easy, remove the glovebox, and voila, there it is. 5 minutes. Done.

Mine was similar, I made a thread to similar affect.

Even though most say they couldn't see a difference my windows defog faster and the cabin air DOES smell better, or perhaps it doesnt smell as stale.

Ive been using the same one for about 80k miles now.

The secret is to take dryer sheets(whatever scent you like) and lay them over the incoming air side. Extends the life of the filter plus gives a wonderful smell to the cabin(atleast for a little while)

that is great advise. From what I understand, our cars don't even come from the factory with one? It is part of my 30k mile service coming up.

the c/a is staticly (is that a word?) charged to help filter air so dryer sheets don't extend the life of it... and i think its a 30k service.... good techs will let u know if it looks bad but typically not changed for free
