Simple Answers from Fenski Automotive Center Inc.: Cabin Air FilterJan 12th, 2016
My car has a bad odor when I run the heater or air conditioner. My friend said I might need a new cabin air filter – what's that?
Fenski Automotive Center Inc. Answer:
A cabin air filter is a special filter that cleans the air that comes into the Sugar Hill drivers' passenger compartments – or cabin – of their vehicles. Most new vehicles sold in Georgia now have a cabin air filter. A cabin air filter catches dust, pollen, spores and other pollutants before they can get into your cabin. It's kind of like the filter on your furnace in your Sugar Hill home, cleaning the air you breathe inside your vehicle.
As Sugar Hill drivers can imagine, it eventually gets filled up and can even start to get smelly. So – you just have it replaced. Now some are really easy to access and others are tougher to get to. Our friendly and knowledgeable technicians will be able to take care of it for you.
Your 's owner's manual likely has a recommendation for when to replace the cabin air filter. If you live and drive in Georgia where there is a lot of dust, pollen or pollution, the filter will fill up quicker. Of course, if you're getting a bad odor bring it to the attention of your friendly and knowledgeable Fenski Automotive Center Inc. service advisor.
