About Cabin Filter
The HVAC system (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) of the car is fitted with an air philtre just like the engine of the cars. Don't know much more? Well, Avatar Parts keep you updated! It's commonly referred to as a cabin philtre. It plays the same role for the HVAC system as the air philtre for the engine of your car does. It is a tiny plissed philtre made up of multi-fiber cotton paper or other engineered materials. So even before reaching the passenger compartment, this philtre travels through the outside air to catch the contaminants found inside the container to prevent them from entering the car.
How It Works?
The ventilation system of the car is based upon the cabin air filter for clean air. This stops dust, dirt, pollen and bacteria from reaching the car's HVAC system, as well as other exhaust gases. It does everything from keeping the bugs away to supplying clean air inside the vehicle, so the passengers can breathe fresh in the car.
Where does it fit?
Don't know where the philtre in the cabin lies? One can find it behind the glove box. All you have to do to use it is open the glove box and take everything out of it. Then remove the small arm which supports it (on the right side of the box) while it hangs. Now that the support arm has been removed, you can squeeze the two small plastic tabs inwards to open the entire glove box for removal
