How Often to Change The Cabin Air Filter?

Hand removing cabin air filter

 

Most Nissan service experts and manufacturers recommended changing the cabin air filter every 15,000 miles. However, it’s best to check your vehicle’s owner’s manual for model-specific service intervals, and you can even speak with our Carrollton service center for recommendations based on driving habits, conditions, and the Newnan-area climate. Learn “what does a cabin air filter do,” how often to change it, and the cabin air filter cost with the service experts at Scott Evans Nissan service center.

What Does a Cabin Air Filter Do?

The cabin air filters clean the air that passes through the heating, air conditioning, and ventilation systems to keep dirt, dust, pollen, and other contaminants from getting inside the cabin. However, over time the cabin air filter will get clogged, which will affect your vehicle’s interior air quality. 

How Will I Know When It’s Time to Change The Cabin Air Filter?

If you live in an area where the air quality is poor, there is lots of construction, or live away from the city and drive on dirt roads or in the desert, or enjoy your off-roading adventures, you may need to change the cabin air filter more frequently. If you’re unsure about how often to change the cabin air filter, below are signs to look out for while you’re heading out on your Douglasville commute:

  1. Reduced airflow when climate control systems are on
  2. Lingering unpleasant odors
  3. Increasing dust settling on vehicle surfaces

Tips to Changing the Cabin Air Filter

  1. Refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual to see where the filter is located. This determines how easy or difficult replacing the cabin air filter will be.
  2. You will often find the cabin air filter behind the glove box or under the hood, which is fairly accessible, but in some models, it’s under the dashboard, which is harder to reach.
  3. Stay protected by wearing gloves and a mask in case the removal process gets messy.
  4. Place the old filter in a garbage bag, and replace it with a genuine OEM part to ensure quality, durability, a perfect fit, long-lasting performance, and to maintain the Nissan warranty.

How Much Does Changing a Cabin Air Filter Cost?

Depending on your vehicle, the cabin air filter cost ranges between $30 and $70. If you visit our Carrollton service center while your car is still under the warranty, some costs may still be covered. You can also order parts online and browse our rotating parts specials and service specials to save on cabin air filter replacement!
