Tip & How-To about 2007 BMW 550i Sedan

Microfilter

The microfilter is an electrostatically charged filter that captures dust and pollen particles (down to 5 microns) that normally are drawn into the passenger compartment through the ventilation system. It is similar to the filter that you have in your home AC unit. Just like your house filter your BMW's microfilter should be changed also. The recommended interval is at every inspection #1 and #2. However, if your AC smells musty or you have decreased blower fan volume change it sooner.

where is the dust and pollen filter located on a 2009 Honda CRV?


Hi Maria: Remove the glove box, then you will be able to remove the cabin air/pollen filter. If you need help removing the glove box, try You Tube and search "2009 Honda CRV dust and pollen filter replacement. You can purchase one from a Honda dealer online or aftermarket such as Rock Auto, etc. Take Care.
