11: Air filters should be replaced in cabins
Your car’s blower motor can be damaged by a clogged cabin air filter, which will cause your air conditioner to work harder and longer in the summer. By replacing the cabin air filters yourself, you’ll save money and time. Ask the retailer to print out installation instructions when you buy a new cabin air filter at a nearby auto parts store. In late-model vehicles, the cabin air filter is generally found in the air duct behind the glove box.
In some models, the cabin air filter may be located on the console or cowling. It is easy to remove the old filter by simply removing the access cover. Install the new filter in the proper orientation by keeping in mind the direction of the airflow arrows. Install the new covers, and you’re all set.
