How Often to Change Your Cabin Air Filter

While it’s often neglected, your cabin air filter is an essential part of your vehicle and changing it is part of any maintenance schedule, usually around the 15,000 to 20,000-mile marker. But what does a cabin air filter do and how much does a cabin air filter cost? Honda of Lincoln answers these common questions from Lincoln drivers below with a guide for how often to change your cabin air filter. 

What Does a Cabin Air Filter Do? 

Your cabin air filter helps make sure the air you’re breathing as you’re driving down Omaha roads is clean. You’re driving past dirt and debris, so your car needs this filter to process all the unwanted particles that can get into your vehicle. When a cabin air filter needs changing, you may sense the following symptoms: 

  • Dust and smog inside cabin 
  • Spores making it difficult for Gretna drivers with allergies 
  • Strain on HVAC system 

For this reason, it’s just as important to know how to check your cabin filter as it is to know how to check car oil

Cabin Air Filter Cost and Changing 

Every 15,000-20,000 miles, or about once a year, you need to know how to change your cabin air filter. The cabin air filter cost in Bellevue is usually only about $25 max, but you can contact a parts center if you’re having trouble finding one. Here’s how to change your cabin air filter: 

  • Behind the Glove Box: In most cases, you can find your cabin air filter behind the glove box. You’ll need to remove the glove box to expose it so you can reach it and replace it.
  • Under the Dash or Hood: In some cases, your cabin air filter will be located under the hood right where air enters or under the dashboard. These cabin air filters can be more difficult to reach, but you can always consult your owner’s manual for specific instructions. 
  • Contact a Service Center: If you’re having any trouble knowing how often to change your cabin air filter, you can always schedule service at a dedicated service department. 

If you drive in dense urban areas with smog, it may be necessary to change your cabin air filter more frequently. Make sure to check it or contact a service center if you think something is amiss!
