What Does a Cabin Air Filter Do?

Most vehicles typically have two filters: an engine air filter and a cabin air filter. The engine air filter is designed to ensure the air entering your vehicle’s engine is clean for optimal performance around Great Falls.

So, what does a cabin air filter do then? The cabin air filter can help clean the air that’s entering your vehicle’s cabin as you’re utilizing your vehicle’s ventilation system. As you drive around Chantilly, the cabin air filter can get full of allergens and pollutants and will eventually need to be replaced.

How Much Does a Cabin Air Filter Cost?

The cabin air filter cost can vary depending on your specific model. However, prices can range anywhere from $35 to $100 and sometimes even more. We suggest you review our service and parts specials for a high-quality OEM cabin air filter for your Mercedes-Benz vehicle.

How Do You Know You Need a New Cabin Air Filter?

We suggest you reference your owner’s manual for specifics on when you should replace your cabin air filter. However, you’ll find that if you’re driving around an area with an abundance of smoke, reduced air quality, or construction, you may need to replace your cabin air filter more often. With that being said, there are some warning signs you can look out for when you’re behind the wheel that may indicate you need a new cabin air filter:
