Changing Air filter for BMW 2007 525XI

Just got a 2007 BMW 525XI, the previeuse owner was a smoker. whenever I turn the air circulation on, I get this strong tobacco smell coming through the vent.
could it be the Air filter dirty? if yes, how can I replace it(DIY)
I have been creaning the car with leather cleaning, wet wipe and it did help a bit for the last week but still have the Cigarette Odor.
Thanks

Cabin atr filter


With the hood up, look up close to the windshield to see if there is a sort of 'grate' that extends across the width of the firewall. The filter will be under that on the passenger side.

I have replaced the micro filter for my 2006 BMW 325I. I need a step by step instruction to reset the computer. Thanks.


You'll get new engine air filter and mircofilter (a/c) whenever your computer tells you that they're bad. Otherwise, if you want to do it for you own driving enjoyment, just do it when the a/c smells bad, or do the engine filter when ever you look at the existing one and feel disgusted.

Them, when you make this job in the dealer os BMW shop, they could reset and reprogrammed this time at next change/replacement.

Is the only way. Good luck.

How often should I change the oil in my 2004 BMW 330i? I've heard 7,500 miles and 15,000 miles. Does it make a difference?


Yes it makes a difference. You can never go wrong following the manufactures recommendations in your owner's manual. Saying that, I recommend every 5,000 miles if you use conventional oil and every 7,000 miles if you use synthetic and drive normally. If you drive mainly highway driving you can extend these 1,000 miles. Just as important is to change the filter at every oil change and to use a quality filter such as Purolator, Wix, AC/Delco, Motorcraft, or Bosch. Avoid cheap filters. Also important to a clean engine is to change the air filter every 30,000 miles.

Changed the 2 cabin air filters but bad odor still comes out vent


If you run your Air cond on recirculate always try using an air sanitizer in your return vent. Or switch your A/C to outside air flow for for half an hour and raise the rear of your sunroof panel to vent the stale air do this till the smell dissipates and then close he sunroof and reset the A/C to recirculate if desired.

It also helps to spray some Fridgi-Fresh or Fridgi-Freeze stuff on the cabin air filter and into the A/C condensor. It kills the odor causing bacteria. A local auto parts store should stock it. Might run you about $20 for a bottle of it.
