K&N Cabin Air Filter Overview
The K&N Washable Cabin Air Filter is the first of its kind designed to replace your vehicle's stock cabin air filter with a washable and reusable version that cleans and freshens incoming air. Watch the K&N Washable Cabin Air Filters Overview video for more information on how cabin air filters work. K&N Cabin Air Filters are designed to be cleaned and reused over and over again. Using a combination of an advanced synthetic filter media and K&N Refresher™ spray, the K&N Washable Cabin Air Filter grabs and holds dust particles.
Does your vehicle have a cabin air filter?
Since automotive cabin air filters have only recently been integrated into US automobile AC/heating systems, many vehicle owners do not realize their car is equipped with a cabin air filter. To determine if your vehicle has a cabin air filter you would first check the owner’s manual. You can also inspect the vehicle for the location of the cabin air filter which is typically found in one of these three places:
• Under the hood, near the windshield
• Underneath the dashboard
• Behind the glove compartment
How to replace a cabin air filter
Most cabin air filters can be replaced without tools but some require basic hand tools to open the cabin air filter compartment. Detailed installation instruction sheets and videos are provided on the specific product web page for the filter that matches your vehicle.
K&N recommends servicing your Washable Cabin Air Filter every 12 months or 12,000 miles. This is similar to the typical recommended replacement interval for a disposable cabin air filter. Cleaning your K&N Washable Cabin Air Filter requires the use of a K&N Refresher Kit by following these simple steps:
1. Remove the filter from your vehicle
2. Spray the cabin filter cleaner onto the filter
3. Rinse the filter with water to remove all dirt
4. Dry naturally for 20-30 minutes
5. Apply K&N cabin air filter Refresher™ to the filter media
6. Re-install the filter back into your vehicle
