Pollen Filter

Post by RickN55 » Wed Sep 19, 2018 4:01 pm

How often do you all change your cabin/pollen filter?
Just took mine for it's yearly oil change and the pollen done even though I had it done last year? Does it really need doing yearly?

It doesn’t need to be changed, however roads are the most polluted air corridors going, so for health reasons I would prefer to change mine regularly. They are activated carbon filters.

If you ever take them out and look at the colour of them you will want to change them yearly :) I changed mine every 30k on my 3er, it's black, Goes in white!

Yeah true. Guess it is only the same as an Air Filter thinking about it. I wouldn't dream of leaving that in for over a year..
