Cabin Air Filter: What it is & When to Replace it

When you drive a luxury car, you want to maintain it for years to come — and that means keeping up with routine service intervals and maintenances. One important service that’s often overlooked is cabin air filter replacement. The cabin air filter helps to ensure that you and your passengers are breathing clean air inside the cabin of your Mercedes-Benz A-Class, GLE, or S-Class. Read on to learn more about the role of a cabin filter, and how often you should be scheduling a replacement.

What Does a Cabin Air Filter Do?

The function of the cabin air filter is straightforward; it helps to remove dust, pollutants, and pollen from the air inside the cabin. If you have allergies, you probably know how miserable seasonal weather changes can be for sufferers, particularly if there’s a lot of pollen or ragweed in the air. If the cabin air filter is clean and working correctly, it’ll help you stay comfortable as you travel around Rockville Centre.

When to Replace a Cabin Filter

Generally, manufacturers recommend that you change your cabin air filter every 12,000 miles to 15,000 miles. Check your owner’s manual for suggestions that are specific to your Mercedes-Benz, or speak with one of our certified service technicians to get an exact interval. The best interval for your vehicle may differ, based on driving conditions, your driving habits, and the climate in the Long Island area.

Signs It’s Time to Change a Cabin Air Filter

If you live in a busy area with a lot of emissions and construction, or you frequently drive on dirt or gravel roads, you may need to change your cabin air filter more frequently. In any case, have your cabin air filter changed if you notice any of the following:

  • Weakened airflow when the heating/air conditioning is on
  • Musty odor
  • Build-up of dust on interior surfaces
