What Does a Cabin Air Filter Do?

air filter replacement

A lot of outside air passes through your car’s heating, air conditioning, and ventilation system, bringing with it all the pollen and pollutants in Port Orchard’s air. The cabin air filter catches these small particles, keeping the air inside your car fresh and clean. Change your cabin air filter if you notice reduced air flow when the climate control system is on, or if unpleasant odors are lingering, and you’re noticing more dust settling on the car’s interior surfaces.

  • Wear gloves and a mask while changing your filter so you don’t get injured on any particles in it.
  • Throw away the old filter and replace it with a genuine Nissan OEM cabin air filter to maintain your car’s warranty.
  • What will a cabin air filter cost in Gig Harbor? The cabin air filter cost is relatively low. Expect to pay less than $25. You can order an OEM cabin air filter through Advantage Nissan’s service department.
