Re: How To : Install A Cabin Air Filter...

i reccommend wearing mechanics gloves for this if you are not going to remove the windshield arm. the original filter is made of metal screen and sliced my hand up pretty good. i should have followed this how to and used a screw driver to pry it off. now i look like i lost a fight to a cat lol

Re: How To : Install A Cabin Air Filter...

GET DIRTY!!!

Re: How To : Install A Cabin Air Filter...

Frankie, I just read up on this.....

Im having some "winter" problems. Everytime we get a HUGE snowfall, snow falls into my vents, and my HVAC system does not work. No air blowing, nothing, completely dead.

This only happens when I get snow.

Would purchasing this new air filter possibly eliminate the amount of snow being brought into the vents?

Sorry for the bumpage, I just thought Id ask

your problem seems to be snow buildup under the top vent but in front of the vent where the cabin air filter would go, i do not think it would help at all. but it is a cheap mod and good to have to keep out alot of dust
