I love it. Good Idea, please tell all the Wix Part number and where you bought it. GMr3Putt said:I just replaced my cabin filter this past weekend.
I was able to get a WIX filter for about $23.
I just undid (released) the top outside edge knobs on the glovebox, as opposed to disconnecting the bottom hinges. These are the little "bumps" that slide in the tracks when opening the glovebox.
The bottom hinges of the glovebox stayed attached.
Filter access door was right there, quite visible.
I was able to get my bearpaws in there and release the filter.
I installed the new filter and washed the old one.
I was able to wash it in a sink full of sudsy water. Came out sparkling. It held up quite well, it's not paper. Air dried it and put it in the WIX box.
Next time, I'll reinstall the cleaned "old" filter.
If you have the time, you could really just wash your OEM filter, let it dry and reinstall. Take the $20+ you saved and get 1/4 tank of gas.
Total time to exchange filter, about 6 minutes.
Keep in mind Eddy, although the filter is not paper, it's also not indestructible. That chlorine is pretty caustic stuff.FastEddy said:I just removed the filter and as suspected it was a brownish color and smelled like an ash tray.
I used my compressor and was amazed at the amount of lint that was collected in the folds. It sill smelled so I now have it soaking in a Clorox and water mix . It floats so im using a glass cup to hold it down.
Thanks to Mr3Putts advice on washing it. I would have spent 20.00 for a new one. I donated half of that to the site.
