Cabin and engine air filters serve similar purposes in different parts of a vehicle. Cabin air filters remove airborne materials from the climate control system and purify the air that circulates inside the vehicle’s passenger cabin. Your owner’s manual should provide you with details on replacing the cabin filter in your car, truck or van.

Maintaining engine air filters is a little more complicated. Engine air filters are located under the hood where they remove dirt and other contaminants that could damage critical moving parts inside the motor. Engine air filters should be changed regularly based upon driving conditions and manufacturer recommendations.

If you’re worried that it’s past time to update your vehicle’s cabin or engine air filters, a visit with Mercedes-Benz of Santa Fe is in order. We’ll gladly handle those tasks and any other automotive matters that your vehicle requires right away.
