Cabin air filter - which direction does it face?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, sorry for the dumb question but could someone confirm which direction the air flows, and thus which way the filter should be oriented?

 

I replaced mine last night, but aside from looking at the dirty side of the old filter I didn't see any clear indication of which way the air flows. And I wasn't paying that close attention when I removed the old one, so I'm not 100% sure I put the new one in the same way.

 

Thanks!

Arrows on new filter should point down into the truck as air is being drawn in.

Coincidentally just changed my cabin air filter tonight. 15000 miles, it was absolutely filthy and clogged with small leaves and other debris.

 

Word of warning: stay away from the aftermarket filters. Picked up a STP filter at AutoZone. First, it was flimsy and cheaply built. Second, it is not the same dimensions as the OEM filter. Took it back to exchange it for the slightly more expensive Fram filter...construction was slightly better, but the fit was still off. Finally, the OEM filter is less expensive.

And make sure you do it yourself! I added it to an oil change as an afterthought and didn't look at the price the dealership charged. $80 to do something that takes a minute and a half and the tech put it in upside down! I literally choked when they gave me the invoice.

You did well with one hand!

 

One hand with the camera, one hand with the light, one hand with the glovebox.

 

You're built more usefully than me...was it hard to get dates in high school?

 

Sorry. I shouldn't have said that.
