What Does a Cabin Air Filter Do?

A cabin air filter cleans the air that passes through the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. It works to keep dirt, dust, pollen, and other contaminants from getting inside the cabin, but over time, you will inevitably get a clogged cabin air filter, which will affect your vehicle’s interior air quality. When you replace the filter, it will be able to do its job again on your Hubbard commutes.

How Do I Know When to Change a Cabin Air Filter?

Depending on where you live and what type of driving you do, you might have to change your filter more often. This includes driving in a city with poor air quality or lots of construction, driving in the desert or on dirt roads, and taking your vehicle off-roading. Here are some signs to look out for to know when it’s time to change your filter:

  • Reduced air flow when climate control systems are on
  • Lingering unpleasant odors
  • Increasing dust settling on vehicle surfaces

If it’s time to replace your filter to a new one, you can do so by doing the following steps:

  1. Check your owner’s manual to determine where the filter is located. This will determine how difficult or easy it is to replace the cabin air filter.
  2. Often, the cabin air filter is behind the glove box or under the hood, which should be fairly accessible, but in some models, it’s under the dashboard, which is more difficult to reach.
  3. Protect yourself by wearing gloves and a mask in case removing the dirty air filter gets messy.
  4. Place the old filter in a garbage bag, and replace it with a genuine OEM part to ensure quality, durability, and fit, and to maintain the Honda warranty.
