To ensure a pleasant atmosphere at all times when driving, pollen, dust and pollutants first have to be removed from the fresh air being drawn in. Cabin filters from Bosch not only protect your health, but also the air conditioning system in your car. Activated charcoal cabin filters provide additional protection against odors and harmful gases. The material used is obtained by the destructive distillation of natural coconut shells with the exclusion of air. The steam required to form the honeycomb structure is heated to a temperature of up to 800 °C. As a result, the internal surface area of 1 gram of activated charcoal is around 1,000 m2 – in other words, one teaspoon full roughly corresponds to the size of a football pitch.

|3.||How do I remove my existing cabin air filter and install a new one?|
Almost half of the vehicles that come equipped with a cabin air filter have the filter positioned inside of the glove compartment on the passenger side of the vehicle under the dashboard. After simply opening the glove box door, removing or “dropping” the door will expose the location of the Cabin filter. There should be a “plate” that should be gently pushed and pulled out to reveal the cabin air filter. Some vehicles come equipped with a specific housing in which the cabin air filter sits into, some vehicles do not have this housing. Gently remove the cabin air filter and ensure the new cabin air filter is the correct filter (ensuring the filter is the correct side up to the air flow) and place back into the housing. For cabin air filters that are located under the hood or under the dashboard, this may require a more specialized installation. Always refer to the vehicle owner’s manual for all installations and locations of cabin air filters.
