Cabin air filters put the joy back into driving
Cabin air filters, or pollen filters as they are also known, refresh and cleanse the air in your vehicle. They reduce dust, allergens or fumes circulating with your air conditioning. No more commuting headaches or sneezing fits. And while we can’t promise to stop the cries of ‘Are we nearly there yet?’ from the backseat, we can promise this: healthier, cleaner air, mile after mile.
Find out how a pollen filter will make your journey a breeze
For regular drivers stuck in daily traffic jams or families heading off on a road trip, a cabin air filter in the car will improve their driving experience. And for allergy sufferers or asthmatics a high-quality cabin air filter will capture airborne allergen particulates, reducing aggravation to their respiratory systems.
What does a cabin air filter do?
Air flows into a vehicle at a volume of up to 540,000 liters per hour through the ventilation ducts. Imagine the amount of dirt and dust that comes with it. Now picture that entering your lungs. Not a pretty picture. In fact, the air inside a car contains around five times more exhaust gases, pollutants and allergens than outside air. Vehicle cabin air filters remove up to 90% of even the tiniest harmful particulates (up to 1µm, in size) creating a barrier between passengers and the incoming air.
A MANN-FILTER cabin air filter separates nearly all fine PM2.5 particulates (up to 95%) – the damaging micro-organisms contained in pollen, exhaust fumes, smoke, fossil fuel emissions and gas droplets. Some of these are smaller than 3% of the diameter of a human hair. Which shows how powerful and effective a pollen filter is.

What you need to know about changing a cabin air filter
Cabin air filter replacement is vital to keeping the air clean inside your vehicle. This is often done as a feature of your regular servicing regime. Cabin air filters should be replaced once a year or every 15,000 km. To optimize the clean air inside the car and improve the driving experience, check your cabin air filter annually.
How will you know if your cabin air filter needs changing?
- Listen out for strange noises. These could be caused by deposits inside the filter
- Watch for unpleasant smells
- Poor air flow is a sign of a clogged cabin air filter
