Mechanic almost overwhelmed by dirty cabin filters

At Dion's Mechanical Services we care about you as well as your car and about any passengers you might carry in it.

We are therefore often appalled to see the state of Cabin Air Filters overwhelmingly found in cars brought to our shop, having previously been serviced by shoddy, unscrupulous or just downright lazy mechanics - including the dealership workshops.

We recommend regular car servicing by reputable mechanics to ensure things like this don't get overlooked. It is a relatively simple thing to check that the cabin air filter of a vehicle is up to the task of keeping the air in the car clean and breathable but amazingly we see a large number of vehicles with filters in an atrocious state.

Designed to filter out pollen or other contaminants whilst absorbing noxious odours and harmful gases, cabin air filters have the task of preventing such toxins from entering the cabin of a vehicle - which is basically the air you and your passengers breathe.

But if these filters are not checked and changed on a regular basis the build up of filtered debris begins to impact the volume of filtered air entering the vehicle cabin and the filters become less effective at their primary role of providing clean air to the cabin. As you can imagine the example above would have been effectively blocked, meaning the amount of fresh, clean, breathable air in the car would have been severely impacted.

Ask our mechanics about cabin air filter replacement when you book your car in for your next service and breathe easier knowing your passengers are breathing clean, filtered air. While you might be tempted to try and replace your own cabin air filters, there are a few reasons why you should consider this approach very carefully.
