I didn't realize until I got my wife a Jeep Patriot that there was a such thing as a cabin air filter. It makes perfect sense now, but who really even think about the air quality coming into the passenger compartment. I know I have never thought about it. I see it is a yearly change or depending where you live it may be more often.
Do any of you have experience with the K&N reusable cabin filter. I don't know why autozone would consider it high performance. That just boggles my mind, but okay. Now $40 is a lot for a reusable filter compared to the $10 buy for the replaceable one.
I'm just trying to see if anyone has the K&N and is it worth the $30 extra when it's a very simply yearly swap that takes less than 5 minutes to do.
Get the regular one. K&N filter should only be bought for the intake filter not the cabin filter

I ordered the K&N. So when I clean the filter in my CAI, I clean the K&N also.

It would be better to just buy the cheaper option I don't believe k and n would improve the quality of the air in your car very much it's not like you're going to spend a long time like you would in your home. Also I'm sure the cabin air filters can go for longer than a year many people don't even know about them so cars go their life without them being changed.
I got the Motorcraft filter on Amazon for $14. I ordered it with an engine filter and a couple other maintenance things so it was all pretty cheap together.
The previous owner, or a shop he took it to, installed the previous cabin filter with the orientation arrow pointing toward the engine. I've heard there are some negatives to installing it the wrong way, but I didn't notice a difference when I installed it pointing it toward the cabin which is supposed to be the correct way.
Aye man, I like my under the hood ornament. That Steeda looks pretty good and sounds good too....lol
Who cares is thats all it's good for LOL
BTW I just installed the new one and since I live in the pollen capital of the southeast and it had not been change possible ever in it's 4 year life span, I might just start changing it every summer after pollen season, maybe even twice a year. I still don't know what it is, but something is in the air every fall as well
Great! Thanks guys... Everytime I see a post on changing/replacing something... BTW, Bob at my local Ford dealer appreciates the business. New cabin filter installed. Actually easier than Bill in the video above makes it out to be.
I'll have to watch that video bc I've never yet changed mine. heard it was a pain but now I have a video to check out

Just changed the cabin air filter on our Pony. Man was it filthy. Very easy to change on the new Mustangs. Took maybe 15 minutes. We took a long trip last summer through the Canyon Lands and we had an excessive amount of forest fires around us last year. The filter was almost completely black. Good to know it works so well. I'll be sure to check it more frequently from now on
