The cabin air filter cleans the air that comes into the interior through the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system, catching the dust, pollen, and smog that can make riding in a car unpleasant, particularly if you have allergies or other respiratory problems.
Recommendations on when it should be replaced vary by manufacturer — some say every 12,000 or 15,000 miles, others longer. But how often you change the cabin air filter really depends on how much you drive and where. Check out this short video from Mighty.

If you drive in heavy traffic with poor air quality, you could need to replace the filter annually or even more often. That also could be true in a desert climate where there is a lot of dust.
If you’ve noticed the heating & AC fan making a noise or there’s just a bad smell you can’t get rid of, you probably need a cabin air filter
Many cabin air filters are located behind the glove box. Others are located under the dashboard and may not be easy to reach, or under the hood where fresh air enters the climate control system.
We check the cabin air filter every time we do an oil change And if we recommend one to you, we’ll show you the old one. You might be shocked at what you see: leaves, twigs, insects, soot and grime that can cover the entire surface that comes in contact with incoming air.
Pollen? Allergies? Funky smell? Breathe easy with a new cabin air filter.
