K&N cabin air filters trap dust, pollen, debris and pollutants

K&N cabin air filters trap dust, pollen, debris and pollutants as well as help control mold, mildew, spores, fungus, bacteria and germs to provide clean air for the driver and passengers

Automotive cabin air filters are a fairly new concept and many 2010-2015 Ford Taurus, Ford Flex, Ford Explorer, Lincoln MKS, and Lincoln MKT owners may not realize their vehicles are equipped with a cabin air filter housed behind the glove compartment. Automotive cabin air filters are designed to filter the incoming air being breathed by the driver and passengers. Cabin air filters trap dust, pollen, debris and pollutants that might make it into a vehicle’s passenger compartment through the ventilation system. Breathing clean air while driving is especially important to those who suffer from allergies or breathing difficulties.

Because cabin air filters are a relatively new idea, many vehicle owners do not realize their car is equipped with a cabin air filter, let alone the importance of changing it. A dirty or clogged cabin air filter can be the source of musty odors inside the vehicle while also impeding airflow into the passenger compartment causing heating or air conditioning problems. Replacing a cabin air filter is a simple, but important, piece of preventative maintenance that helps protect passengers and the vehicle’s heating and air conditioning system. K&N washable and reusable cabin air filter VF1011 for 2010-2015 Ford Taurus, Ford Flex, Ford Explorer, Lincoln MKS, and Lincoln MKT models can be installed in the cabin air filter housing behind the vehicle’s glove compartment in a matter of minutes without the need for tools.

K&N washable and reusable cabin air filters use a single layer of thermally bonded nonwoven synthetic material as a physical barrier to trap dust, pollen, leaves and other debris. With the aid of K&N’s Refresher spray, an electrostatic charge is able to help capture many types of mold, mildew, spores, fungus, bacteria and germs while helping to control odors. K&N Cabin Air Filters are built with molded urethane and wire screen ensuring long life, and the ability to be cleaned repeatedly. K&N Cabin Air Filters allow owners to clean their filter as often as necessary without incurring the cost of buying disposable filters over and over again. This is excellent news for allergy sufferers, those with breathing difficulties, or vehicles operated in dirtier than normal environments.
