The cabin air filter should be replaced every season or 15,000 miles. This filter stops debris, pollen, and dust from causing damage to sensitive internals in your vehicle’s a/c system. Google what a used air filter looks like and you may want to come in sooner than later. The cabin air filter is the first line of defense when it comes to filtering out all this dirt, dust, pollen, debris, etc from reaching the main cabin of your vehicle. The cabin air filter sits right inside of your air conditioning system. Too much build-up in these air filters will cause problems for you such as that annoying musty odor. It also will impede the flow of cool air into the cabin reducing the efficiency of you’re A/C system which left un-serviced will cause expensive damage to the vital system components within you’re A/C system. The A/C cycle causes moisture to build upon this filter enabling the growth of mold This smell won’t magically go away either. Treat yourself, your sinuses and your car by replacing these filters. Always remember to clear the debris away from around the exterior grill of your car located at the bottom of your windshield. This will prevent extra unnecessary debris from getting sucked into your air conditioning system which could eventually clog it up.
