Simple Answers from All Pro Servicenter: Cabin Air FilterMar 7th, 2014
My car has a bad odor when I run the heater or air conditioner. My friend said I might need a new cabin air filter – what's that?
All Pro Servicenter Answer:
A cabin air filter is a special filter that cleans the air that comes into the West Des Moines drivers' passenger compartments – or cabin – of their vehicles. Most new vehicles sold in Iowa now have a cabin air filter. A cabin air filter catches dust, pollen, spores and other pollutants before they can get into your cabin. It's kind of like the filter on your furnace in your West Des Moines home, cleaning the air you breathe inside your vehicle.
As West Des Moines drivers can imagine, it eventually gets filled up and can even start to get smelly. So – you just have it replaced. Now some are really easy to access and others are tougher to get to. Your friendly and knowledgeable All Pro Servicenter will be able to take care of it for you.
Your 's owner's manual likely has a recommendation for when to replace the cabin air filter. If you live and drive in Iowa where there is a lot of dust, pollen or pollution, the filter will fill up more quickly. Of course, if you're getting a bad odor, bring it to the attention of your friendly and knowledgeable All Pro Servicenter service advisor.
