It’s springtime, you start your vehicle, and the air that blows from your vents come with a smell. It could smell moldy, it could smell like vinegar, but either way, you don’t like the smell! An overlooked remedy has been sitting in your face all along and it's the cabin air filter! The cabin air filters job is to keep the air in your vehicle clean. It’s usually located behind your glove compartment or under the dashboard. The air filter catches any unwelcome debris that may enter your vehicle.

Another benefit of changing your filter is allergy relief! This time of year, pollen becomes a burden. It can cover your vehicle and even inside your car ventilation! If you have allergies this can be a nightmare. How often you change your cabin air filter depends on where you live and how much you drive. You should change your cabin air filter every 15,000-30,000 miles or once a year to be safe.
