Cabin Air Filter Replacement
Every Toyota vehicle engineered today comes equipped with a cabin air filter that removes airborne particulates from the air before they can enter the cabin. The airborne contaminants that get caught in your cabin air filter include dust, pollen, mold spores, and smog. The cabin air filter does an important job but it’s sometimes ‘out of sight and out of mind’ until you have a funky smell coming out of your vents.
Don’t Wait Until You Have a Bad Smell
If you have a bad smell coming out of your ventilation system, then it’s already too late. We never recommend waiting until the last minute to replace your dirty cabin air filter. The best way to know that your cabin air filter is doing its job right is to have it replaced at the recommended maintenance interval outlined in your owner’s manual.
Signs of a Faulty Cabin Air Filter:
- Unusual noise coming from the vents
- Reduced airflow through the climate control system
- Smell of gasoline when starting the vehicle
- Dirty or Musty smell when the blower is turned on
