Simple Answers from Wildt Brothers Incorporated Automotive Repair: Cabin Air FilterMar 21st, 2014
My car has a bad odor when I run the heater or air conditioner. My friend said I might need a new cabin air filter – what's that?
Wildt Brothers Incorporated Automotive Repair Answer:
A cabin air filter is a special filter that cleans the air that comes into the Louisville drivers' passenger compartments – or cabin – of their vehicles. Most new vehicles sold in KY now have a cabin air filter. A cabin air filter catches dust, pollen, spores and other pollutants before they can get into your cabin. It's kind of like the filter on your furnace in your Louisville home, cleaning the air you breathe inside your vehicle.
As Louisville drivers can imagine, it eventually gets filled up and can even start to get smelly. So – you just have it replaced. Now some are really easy to access and others are tougher to get to. Your friendly and knowledgeable Wildt Brothers Incorporated Automotive Repair will be able to take care of it for you.
Your 's owner's manual likely has a recommendation for when to replace the cabin air filter. If you live and drive in KY where there is a lot of dust, pollen or pollution, the filter will fill up more quickly. Of course, if you're getting a bad odor, bring it to the attention of your friendly and knowledgeable Wildt Brothers Incorporated Automotive Repair service advisor.
