According to Mechanicbase, the cabin air filter in a car is responsible for filtering the air that comes through the car's HVAC system, ensuring that the air inside the car is clean and free of contaminants. Over time, the cabin air filter can become clogged with dirt, dust, and other debris, which can cause a range of problems.
These are some common symptoms of a bad cabin air filter in your car according to Mechanicbase.
If you notice that the airflow from your car's HVAC system is weaker than usual, it could be a sign that the cabin air filter is clogged and needs to be replaced.
A clogged cabin air filter can also lead to unpleasant smells inside the car. This is because the filter is no longer able to trap odors, allowing them to circulate throughout the cabin.
If you suffer from allergies, a bad cabin air filter can make your symptoms worse. This is because the filter is no longer able to trap allergens, such as pollen and dust, allowing them to enter the cabin and irritate your respiratory system.
Poor heating or cooling performance
A clogged cabin air filter can also cause problems with your car's heating and cooling system. This is because the reduced airflow can prevent the system from working efficiently, making it harder to maintain a comfortable temperature inside the car.
Finally, a clogged cabin air filter can sometimes cause strange noises to come from the HVAC system. This is because the reduced airflow can cause the blower motor to work harder than usual, leading to unusual sounds.
