What A Cabin Air Filter Fixed

okay, today i replaced my cabin air filter. idk when it was replaced last or if it had even been replaced before, it was sooooo dirty, there were a few dead leaves on it, dust, and the whole thing was dark gray when it is supose to be white.

well i put the new one in with a little dificulty sense it is so cold and i kept scrating my hand on something; but after i put it in the air came out so fresher and stronger, a little like as if i turned up the a/c power 1 level higher then what it was really at. the filter cost 20 bucks but i think it will help the a/c last longer....

ima try to fix that mysterious clicking noise and if i do i'll make a write up of it but it wont have pics....

yup, i bet it's good and dirty lol. if you look in the owners manual it will tell you when it's recommended to change it. if it's not that dirty, just blow it out with compressed air to save some money.

i have over 60K and i have yet to change it and i bet it probably needs it too, part that sucks about it too is i have to have it special ordered since none of my local auto part stores carry it

On the sides of the glovebox near the back are "2" tabs that have to be pushed inwards to release it.
