Have you ever noticed a musty smell in your vehicle’s cabin?
Do you seek comfort from your allergies by keeping your vehicle's windows rolled up – but get no relief? It could be because you have a dirty cabin air filter! What’s that you ask? Keep on reading!
Think of a cabin filter like a home furnace filter. Furnace filters prevent dust and other contaminants from tainting the air you breathe in your house. Cabin filters work the same way in your vehicle. Cabin air filters prevent particles such as pollen, dust, mold spores, tobacco smoke, soot, smog, mildew, pet dander and fungus from getting from the outside into the air you and your passengers breathe inside your vehicle.
Many vehicles today come factory installed with a cabin filter or at a minimum the cabin filter housing, but most people don’t know about it. Do you? Use the Application Guide to find out if your vehicle has a cabin filter and then replace your vehicle's dirty cabin filter every 12 months or 12,000 to 18,000 miles with a new Purolator BreatheEasy cabin filter!
Installing A BreatheEasy Cabin Filter
It may sound difficult, but in most cases, it is very simple to install a Purolator BreatheEasy cabin filter – some take less than 5 minutes! For other installations that may be more involved, you may want to contact your mechanic or vehicle dealership service center.
When to Change Your Cabin Filter
Purolator recommends that you replace your dirty cabin filter with a new Purolator BreatheEasy cabin filter every 12,000 to 18,000 miles, or as specified by your vehicle’s manufacturer.
