What Is a Cabin Air Filter on Toyota Vehicles?

A Toyota cabin air filter is a product that helps keep contaminants such as dirt, pollen, dust, and other debris from entering your vehicle's passenger cabin. It is made of high-quality fibres, and there are two types, each incorporating advantaged technology. A charcoal filter adds an extra layer of activated carbon to help remove odours and an electrostatic filter that holds an electrostatic charge to trap contaminants.

Why is Maintenance Important?

Your New or Used Toyota Vehicle holds a cabin air filter designed to improve the air you breathe and keep your ventilation and heating system working at ultimate efficiency. Over time, your cabin air filter will become very dirty, which may slow the airflow through the vehicle's ventilation and heating system. Good airflow is crucial for swiftly defrosting or defogging windows and eliminating extra needless extra time running the engine. When your filter gets clogged, reduced airflow can also affect the long-term reliability of ventilation and heating components that rely on good air circulation.

How Do I Know When I Should Change My Toyota Cabin Air Filter?

During your regular inspection of every six months or 8,000 kilometres, you should have your cabin air filter inspected. If you regularly drive in heavy traffic, on gravel roads, or in dusty environments, your filter should be checked more often.

When the filter appears a dusty grey and clogged with dust, dirt, or other debris, it is due for a replacement. Our Toyota Service Centre is the best source of advice. Cabin air filters are not expensive to replace and are essential to your vehicle's air quality. So make sure to ask our technicians at your next scheduled service appointment to inspect your Toyota cabin air filter for optimum performance.

How to Change a Cabin Air Filter

Most New Toyota Vehicles and Used Cars have a cabin air filter to purify the air inside your vehicle. Schedule a Service Appointment to have our Toyota technicians replace your filter, or follow the instructions below to do it yourself.

  1. Open and empty the glove box. Find the screw on the lower right side and remove it. Refer to your owner's manual if you cannot locate it. Not all models have this.
  2. Locate the plastic tabs along the sides of the glove box. When pressing down on these tabs, you will notice the glove box will open more fully.
  3. Locate a long rectangular plastic strip and find two tabs on either side. Squeeze in the tabs, and the plastic should come away, exposing the air filter.
  4. Remove the old filter and replace it with a new genuine Toyota cabin air filter. You can find this genuine Toyota part, and others, at our Parts Centre.
  5. Replace the plastic strip and reassemble the glove box.

How Often Should You Change Your Toyota Air Filter?

Your air filter should be replaced every 25,000 km, but that may vary depending on your driving habits. But rather than guessing, let Woodbridge Toyota be your guide on how often your Toyota will require an air filter replacement. Contact us for more information.

Is Cabin Air Filter Worth Changing?

If you don't replace your cabin air filter, the current filter in use will become more clogged with debris and dirt and reduce your cabin's air quality. This can lead to foul odours, inadequate heating and ventilation, and reduce air volume in your car. Changing the cabin air filter in your vehicle is an inexpensive way to enjoy your Toyota drive continuously.
