What is a Cabin Air Filter & What Does it Do for My Vehicle?
The cabin air filter serves an important function of making sure that the air coming through the vehicle’s HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) is clean. It helps by filtering out the pollutants like dirt, pollen, mold, and exhaust emissions that can come through the lines in the system and catches them before coming out of the vents. Over time, the Toyota cabin air filter will collect enough dust and dirt that it will not become as effective at performing its functions and your cabin will start to receive some of the exterior pollutants.

How to Tell My Cabin Air Filter Needs Replacing
There are a few signs that can tell you it’s time to have your cabin air filter replaced. For one, you’ll be able to tell that the air quality isn’t at its best. This will be easy to tell based on a moldy smell within the cabin. Another sign is that your air conditioning or heating system will be louder than normal, and you’ll notice that it will take a while for you to actually feel the warm or cool air flowing through the vents. But when you notice these signs, you’ll want to think about replacing the cabin air filter in your Toyota. Another way to tell is by checking your owner’s manual and seeing the recommended mileage to have the filter replaced.
How to Replace My Cabin Air Filter
