Cabin Air Filter Woes
 
Driving down the road, minding my own business, when....
I smelled Diesel fumes.... argh!! :eek:

(insert another comparison between Jeep and BMW)

Seriously the Cabin Air Filter should be made with activated carbon, not paper. I found a place that makes custom carbon filters:

The dimensions are 9.5" x 10.5" x 1.25"
Cost $125/6 pack, inc. Shipping. (which is about the same as the paper filters at Autozone)

Problem solved! :cool:

BMW has a sensor that switches it to re-circ also.

sweet! subscribed for updates. big fan of activated carbon. was hoping it would just be a matter of time before we got some... going the custom route works too!

Do they really stop diesel fumes? If so, I will also jump on that. :thumbsup:

I will sell 3 of these for anyone who wants a carbon filter that fits the WK2. These filters will last at least 2 or 3 years EACH, so I don't need the whole 6-pack. $25 plus the postage. PM me your info and we'll go from there. I have a PayPal account.

I'd be in for one. Is the air filter the same for the 3.6 v6 as the Hemi?

Yes it should be. If you want to remove the paper filter and double-check the dimensions are 10.5 x 9.5 x 1.25

took a pic of the recirc button on my BMW - it works great. you can see there's a manual and automatic setting.

I had that on my 2010 M3 and there were times the smell of diesel still got inside the car. I think the only way to keep out that stench is to wrap the vehicle in a gigantic plastic bag. :lol:

Guess I always thought that "A" stood for AIR as in Outside Air. I always had mine on then and it worked perfectly.
