The climate control system in your passenger cabin includes a filter that helps remove dust, pollen, mold spores and other particles from the air and improve the interior air quality that you and your passengers breathe. After a visual inspection, Auto Web Expo Car Care Center can install a new cabin air filter replacement, if necessary. Your vehicle manufacturer recommends replacement at normal and severe intervals based on your driving habits. If you routinely drive in particularly challenging environments — on dirt or dusty roads — consider using the severe recommended interval. Even if it’s unclear when the last time your filter was replaced, our technicians can tell if it’s clogged with dust and debris.
It's Sunday and the big basketball game is this afternoon, but you can forget about getting tickets. So it's gather the crowd and drive to the sports bar. Minutes into the ride, the windshield is so foggy, you've got to hit the Defrost button. But why? The panel is set to outside air for heater operation, and there are no smokers in the car. You put your hand over the defroster outlets and there's hardly any airflow. When you turn the blower switch to high, the noise level goes up but the airflow is still weak.
Maybe you need to change the cabin air filter. If it's plugged, the passenger compartment might as well be a sealed cabin—and with a carload of friends the glass will fog in minutes. Filter life depends on the air quality in your area, but a year, or 12,000 to 15,000 miles, typically is the recommended replacement interval.
