ya...I just changed mine last month, .....well....maybe I shouldnt say changed.......(A MUST BUY) rather..... It was 4th of July Weekend, and the family was planning a family reunion. Crunk the 6 on to let the AC cool. Five minutes later,STILL HOT!!...I was like.....huh?......Turns out...... The Blower from the AC totally shredded the Air Filter to pieces!! :swearin: (Dont ask how) ahahahaha.......

That didnt stop us though.......95-100 degrees......Rolled down the windows and drove about 200 miles to the reunion. :drive:

I change mine once/year, about 15-16K miles, and the dirt build-up isn't too bad.

That reminds me, it's time to change mine. :)

I would change it once a year.

After changing mine for the first time, my AC worked alot better.

So how hard is it to do this? I know there is a how to on 6tech but from personal experience what are your opinions? How much was it too?

I'll have to hit the dealership sometime in the coming week and pick one of these up so I can throw it in there. Its funny, sometimes I hear a little whining from the fans in the HVAC system and I think its because the filters probably somewhat stopped up with dirt.

anyone have the link for the how to? Maybe where to buy one? I have to sadly admit I'm one of those with the warranty about to expire and I've never changed mine. Plus, if it helps the A/C I could really use that!! The car gets hot here in the desert, even when it is raining!!

I'm not sure where to get it but in the manual it says to replace every 25,000 miles. But heres the how to

actually i just noticed on the top of the how-to that it says every 12,000 but i def remember seein the maintenance chart sayin 25,000 miles

it looks like you had a peanut on the old one....

yeah this swap takes about 5 minutes. i think the hardest part was getting that stupid cover back on there correctly.
