2001 – 2004 Toyota RAV4 Air Filter

K&N’s washable cabin air filters help clean and freshen the air coming into your car's interior.

The job of a cabin air filter is to clean and filter the outside air that enters your car, truck, or SUV through its ventilation system. In comparison, its function is similar to the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning air filter you may have in your house. Just as it’s important to change the air filter in your home’s HVAC system, it’s important that you service your cabin air filter on a regular basis. As the filter does its job and collects dust, debris, and pollen it gets dirtier so that the air entering your ventilation system could become restricted. Without the full flow of air around which the ventilation system was designed, it could cause your air conditioning and heating system to not work as efficiently as it should. Should you own a 2000-2005 Toyota Echo, 2001 – 2004 Toyota RAV4, 2004 – 2006 Scion xA and xB, your car is fitted with a cabin air filter that can be replaced by a K&N VF2009.

As the air filter in your HVAC system is your first line of defense for what you breathe at home, the cabin filter plays the same role in your car. While there are recommended replacement intervals, various factors, like driving in an area with sand or dust in the air, can cause the need for your filter to be changed more frequently. Without changing the filter, you might find that these particulates have collected on your filter and have reduced air flow through your paper air filter. This can lead to the vehicle generating more noise than pushing air through the vents even when you turn up the fan to high. Also persistent bad odors can often be traced to bacteria or mold growing on the filter in cars operated in damp climates.

Your cabin air filter is your first line of defense, so why not replace your OEM filter (typically made from paper) with a high-quality K&N filter. K&N cabin air filters are the first of their kind designed to replace your vehicle's stock cabin air filter with a washable and reusable upgrade that cleans and freshens incoming air. The K&N VF2009 are electrostatically charged to grab and hold dust and other airborne particles. They also help control odors while they help capture most mold, mildew, fungus, spores, and germs.

Made of a unique non-woven synthetic material, the K&N VF2009 cabin air filters is an easy replacement upgrade for your vehicle's HVAC system. Replacing the cabin air filter is a fast swap – it’s as simple as exchanging the old, dirty filter for a new one.

The only maintenance required for a K&N cabin air filter is a service you can do yourself using the 99-6000 cabin filter cleaning kit.  At intervals of about 12 months or 12,000 miles, you can easily renew and re-oil your air filter, which brings it back to virtually new condition and ready to protect your car’s cabin and your passengers. Your K&N cabin air filter has been designed to last for years of use and is guaranteed by K&N’s 10-Year/100,000 Mile Limited Warranty.
