Aircon Air Filter

Recommended Posts

So yeah, took out the air filter for the first time to find heaps of leaves and other pollon stuff (was expecting to see only a bit of dust). Anyone else checked their air filters and found this stuff? Seeing as I don't have an air compressor, it is kind of hard to remove all the debri (got some of it out). Anything wrong with keeping it like this without cleaning? Would I be losing efficiency?

Thanks

This was mine compared to the new filter I bought:

WOW, thats a big difference.

While i was at the dealer about 2 months ago, i recall overhearing a service advisor advising a Customer that the life of the filters may vary and may need to be changed after 30,000 km.

Not sure if that is correct or not but its just seems a bit too soon

Could be that your old one was the activated carbon type? They are normally dark grey

The activated carbon cabin filters are entire black including the frame like this one in the pic.

These A/C pollen filters certainly do get that dirty. They are made to trap fine particles so going black like that isn't anything out of the ordinary. This was one of mine after 13,000km:

Changed mine yesterday.

Filter from an ebay seller less than half the Toyota cost. The job took about 5 minutes. Very straightforward.

The old filter was worse than the ones pictured...probably more than 40K old.
