Cabin air filter inspection is recommended every maintenance interval, with replacement every 12,000 miles (more often if parking under trees or driving on dirt roads). Neglected filters may become clogged, resulting in either decreased airflow or reduced air quality into the vehicle interrior.

Replacing your own cabin air filter is both economically resourceful and time-saving. You could perform this service yourself, excluding part shipping, usually in less time than it would take to schedule the service.

Aftermarket cabin filters often perform just as well as OEM filters, sometimes better, and often for less. They may also incorporate additional enhancements, such as the inclusion of carbon particles for improved odor filtration.

Overall, this is a simple procedure only requiring a standard flat screwdriver. Other than recommending the vehicle be switched off, no safety concerns have been identified.
