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 Amazon

“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?

thanks tomphamwd


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 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.

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.
