I can't seem to find any intruction to replace cabin filter for my Dec 2017 Model S. Is it require to remove glove compartment or from the frunk?
remove the top plastic piece (windshield side) and you should see the back side of the filter
Can you buy the cabin filter on the market? I'm interested in replacing the cabin filter myself instead of letting Tesla replace it at annual service.
Thanks Silver2K. Also, replacement filter can purchase directly from Amazonhttps://www.amazon.com/dp/B0791BW29Z/?coliid=IOOVGE9H32RYV&colid=3JLFIYU...
“Instead of letting Tesla replace it at annual service”.....why? It won’t reduce the price fo the annual service. What is prompting you to replace the filter in the first place?
both wife and I are sensitive to dust, pet hair etc. It is more of psychological benefit if I can replace the filter every 6 months or whenever one of us feels like to replace the filter.
Cabin air filter at Servicenter is seven dollars.
YouTube videos show how to replace.
Cabin air filter is $40 at Tesla as per ranger.
My ranger looked it up on his laptop and told me seven dollars. He always replaces it when he comes out gratis.
$8.50 per Clean Technica article. Won't link without the space.
I just called Tesla Service. The Model S cabin filter is $18, not $8.50. And the Model 3 cabin filter is $17.50 x 2.
The ranger replaced the cabin filter during the annual service visit because I started to smell odors from air polluting vehicles. The steps included removing the dash trim panel and glove box. I wish Tesla designed an easier way to accomplish this because removing parts could introduce another cause for failure as pieces are removed and reinserted.
@Tkim, TROLL ALERT. FLAGGED FOR TOTAL DOUCHEBAGGERY AND LITTERING.
Tkim, its not Tesla. Thank your governor. If that's not enough info, Google it.
