I love being able to do things all on my own! I hate asking for help so I take a lot of care in learning how to do things right. One of the things that you don’t often think of doing but really should is changing your cabin air filter in your vehicle. Changing your cabin air filter is easier than you think, so I thought I would show you exactly how to do it, and why you should do it!
We have quite a few summer road trips lined up this summer, and changing our cabin air filter is on the list of things I need to do before we go. It’s one of those projects you don’t often think of, so tying it in to our truck maintenance before our first road trip is a great way to remember to get it done. In fact, I had no idea if our cabin air filter had ever even been changed. Time to do it!
I replaced my cabin air filter with a FRAM® Fresh Breeze Cabin Air Filter that I received from Canadian Tire. You can find this filter at Canadian Tire or Part Source. FRAM® is trusted with expertise in cabin air filtration so they were definitely the right product choice to change our cabin air filter for the first time!
FRAM® Fresh Breeze Cabin Air Filters are also the only cabin air filter with Arm & Hammer.
Let me show you how easy it is to change your cabin air filter!
The first thing I did was enter my truck’s information into the Canadian Tire website so I could learn which cabin air filter I needed. Not all vehicles have a cabin air filter, so be sure to check out their website first to see if changing the cabin air filter is applicable to your vehicle. First I had to lower my glove compartment by disconnecting the dampener arm. It was very easy to remove the plastic trim from the upper portion of the glove compartment. Next up I had to remove the screws that were holding the upper portion of the compartment, and then I unclipped and removed this section.
After I disconnected the electrical connector, I removed the cabin filter access door. Believe it or not I was almost done at this point!
I removed the old cabin filter, and, wow, was it dirty! I couldn’t believe the difference between the old filter and new filter! It was definitely time to change that filter!
I installed the new FRAM® Fresh Breeze Cabin Air Filter, and it had an arrow pointing down so I knew which way to install it. To finish I just needed to replace the cabin air filter access door, replace the plastic trim and upper portion of the glove department, and then I was ready to put the glove compartment back into position!
FRAM® Fresh Breeze Cabin Air Filters remove odors flowing through the vehicle ventilation system, and it’s really something you don’t often think about because it’s out of sight, out of mind. After seeing the old cabin air filter I realized I probably should have changed the cabin air filter sooner because it was clogged with debris.
The Fresh Breeze technology keeps up to 98% of road dust and pollen particles from entering a vehicle which is especially important at this time of year with all of the pollen in the air! I truly think that anyone can do this project. It’s so simple to do, and if you need reminders on how, FRAM® offers video tutorials to help you along the way!
