What is the Cabin Air Filter for and why do you need to replace it?
A cabin air filter is found in most vehicles. This specific filter cleans the air that is coming in through the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system. Not only does the cabin air filter remove pollens and unpleasant smells, the cabin air filter can also aid in removing microbial bacteria that filter in from the ventilation system, making the air you breath in your vehicle much cleaner. You need to replace the cabin air filter around 12,000-15,000 miles or when you have your oil changed you should have the cabin air filter checked out. Austrian Motors is located in West Midtown Atlanta and offers scheduled maintenance for Mercedes Benz Vehicles. Cabin air filter cleaning and replacement is essential to the health of your vehicle.

Maintaining the longevity of your vehicle is highly dependent on the service and maintenance you have performed on your vehicle. Follow your Mercedes Maintenance Schedule.
