Changing your cabin air filter (DIY, so easy & inexpensive!)

Hey guys,

Last time I got my oil changed, they recommended to change my cabin air filter, cost being like $130.00! I decided to see how much one was off of Amazon, $18.00 and it took about 3 minutes to swap out.

You literally unhook the two tabs on the glove compartment hinge, pop open the filter cover replace and that is it!

There is the link and here are some pics of my super dirty old filter, yuck! Helps get rid of in the car stale air smells etc.

Awesome!
How did you find out the right replacement filter for your car? Is your link also the right part for a 2012 RRS schgd?
Thanks!

In my Amazon profile i list my make/model of vehicle and when you search "Range Rover Sport cabin filter", it says is compatible with your vehicle. I would imagine they are the same for most all Land Rover vehicles. This particular one was the Amazon Choice and reviewers talked about them using this one in their RR Sport.

Hello All,
I have just purchased 2007 L320 SC.

Should the airflow arrow point up or downwards?

Mine is currently pointing up... but whatever I see on the internet/forums are pointing downwards...
so I wonder if the previous owner installed it incorrectly? It doesn't have any dirt on it... so I can't really tell but it stinks badly so I ordered new one

The blower is under the air inlet duct (with the filter sandwiched in between), so air flows downward.

I got a replacement filter a few weeks back from Amazon as well and it came with directions, and the arrow is supposed to point upwards. Looked around the car and noticed the motor is below where the filter is and I think it should blow upwards towards the vents.

it actually blows downward.
Start up the car, turn on the fans and put a piece of paper in air filter slot to see it yourself.
