Does your vehicle have a cabin air filter?
Since automotive cabin air filters have only recently been integrated into automobile AC/heating systems, many vehicle owners do not realize their car is equipped with a cabin air filter. To determine if your vehicle has a cabin air filter you would first check the owner’s manual, search by Vehicle to find a cabin air filter for your car model or you can also inspect the vehicle for the location of the cabin air filter which is typically found in one of these three places:
- Under the hood, near the windshield
- Underneath the dashboard
- Behind the glove compartment
How to replace a cabin air filter?
