PTC Air Filter - Cabin Air Filter - 3513931 Review

Today we're going to take a quick look at the PTC custom fit cabin air filter. Now, it's important to change out your filter pretty regularly to make sure that your HVAC system is working correctly and that you're not breathing in harmful contaminants from the outside when you're driving.Things like brake dust, smoke, bacteria, pollen, soot, any of those things that we typically don't want to breathe in that's going to be trapped by our air filter. It's going to have these paper-like pleats to trap all those things, keep it in our filter rather than us breathing it in our lungs.It also helps to make sure that your HVAC system is working properly. If you change this out regularly since it's not going to get gunked up, it's going to help the airflow to move more freely and if you're finding that your AC isn't pumping out as much cold air as it used to, maybe your heat isn't really working like it should. It might be because it's time to change out that air filter.It's typically a pretty easy install. Most air filters are going to be located behind or underneath the driver's side glove compartment.

So you'll need to open that up, maybe remove it. It might have a screw or two to undo, but typically pretty easy. You can do it at home, in your garage or in your driveway.This is going to be a fit for the 2012 through 2016 BMW X3, the 2015 through '16 BMW X4, and the '13 BMW X3 turbo charged. The manufacturer does recommend that you change out your filter about once a year or every 12,000 to 18,000 miles.Of course, whenever you're looking for how to install this on your vehicle, you want to check your owner's manual and they should also give you any specifications. If that differs from the manufacturer, go off of theirs.That's going to do it for our look at the PTC custom fit cabin air filter..
