How Often Should I Change My Cabin Air Filter?

Many Tampa drivers are aware that their Land Rover has a cabin air filter, but they may not know how often they should change their cabin air filter or what the cabin air filter cost is. Most automotive industry experts agree that your cabin air filter should be replaced every 15,000 miles to ensure that the air in your vehicle stays clean and safe to breathe. Learn more about your cabin air filter with Land Rover Tampa below, or contact our service team if you have any questions.

What Does a Cabin Air Filter Do?

The cabin air filter is named aptly for its purpose. As you drive through Clearwater, your cabin air filter cleans the air that passes through the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems in Land Rover models. This keeps contaminants like dirt, dust, pollen, and small debris from entering your vehicle from the vents, allowing you to breathe easy on your commute or weekend errands. Over time your cabin air filter will become clogged, which will affect your vehicle cabin’s air quality.

Wondering how the cabin air filter vs. engine air filter compares? The engine air filter is located within your vehicle’s engine and works to keep harmful debris away from the system. This may not seem like an important service task, but regular cabin air filter parts are affordable to replace and can easily save you thousands of dollars in engine damage. It also helps improve your luxury vehicle’s efficiency and performance, saving you money at the gas pump. This is why many Land Rover service technicians recommend having your engine filter checked during your annual emissions inspections as well as your annual vehicle inspection.

When Is It Time To Change a Cabin Air Filter?

Changing your vehicle’s cabin air filter every 15,000 miles is recommended for the casual Wesley Chapel driver. However, if you live in an area with poor air quality, frequent construction sites, or you drive on desert or dirt roads you will need to change your cabin air filter more frequently. Here are the signs to watch for:

  • You experience reduced airflow when climate control systems are on.
  • You smell lingering unpleasant odors.
  • You see increasing dust settling on vehicle surfaces.

How To Change a Cabin Air Filter?

Changing your cabin air filter is a relatively easy task, but it will take a little time and some basic tools. Use your Land Rover owner’s manual to find out where your cabin air filter is located, how many you have, and what tools you will need for the job. Read the instructions below when you’re ready:

  • Use your owner’s manual to locate where your cabin air filter is and how many you have. Some Land Rover vehicles have more than one air filter.
  • Use the appropriate tools to remove any casing surrounding your air filter.
  • The service team at Land Rover Tampa recommends putting a towel down under the area where your cabin air filter is to catch any dust or debris that comes out.
  • When you’re ready, remove the air filter from its housing.
  • Take a moment to note how the old air filter is positioned and which way the airflow was going so you can put the new air filter incorrectly. The airflow indicator will be marked on the side of your new filter.
  • Throw away the old filter in a plastic or paper bag. Use a vacuum to clean up any leftover dust from the air filter casing and housing.
  • Place the new cabin air filter in your vehicle. Make sure it’s facing the right direction.
  • Replace the housing and secure any covers you took off to access the filter.
