As a woman, most aspects of car maintenance are considered to be beyond my skill level. However, the truth is that there are a number of low effort basic upkeep items I can very easily do. They can be done by any woman (or man).
One of those is to change the air filters on your vehicle. This is a job that, depending on your exact model of vehicle, could involve very few, to no tools. My vehicle for example requires no tools to change either the engine air filter or the cabin air filter. A simple quick trip to Canadian Tire, check the handy electronic directory to determine which FRAM filters I needed, easily locate them on the shelf and off I went.
Changing The Cabin Air Filter
- Begin by emptying the glove box
- Squeeze in the sides of the glove box to open it up to the filter in back.
- You will find the air filter behind the flat metal panel
- Squeeze the two clips on the sides of the panel and remove the panel.
- Pull the old air filter out directly towards you.
- Remove the new FRAM Fresh Breeze Cabin Air Filter from the box.
- Remove the plastic wrapping
- Insert the air filter back into the slot, until it is all the way in.
- Push the cover plate back over top until it clicks
- Squeeze the two sides of the glove box while pushing it back into it’s standard position
- You just changed the filter.
The vast majority of vehicles today have a cabin air filter (though even some current or relatively current models do not) This filter is important in helping to provide clean air for the occupants of the vehicle as it is common for the air in a car to be as much as 6X dirtier then outside air. Even more important is that the air filter helps keep dust and other particulates out of the air. A clogged filter also can make both the air conditioner and heater systems work much less efficiently and effectively.
Changing The Engine Air Filter Is Even Easier.
The engine air filter which is even less difficult to change involves simply unsnapping a couple of clips, lifting out the old filter and placing in the new one. Clip on the cover and off you go. Both these filter changes are simple and easy to do. They are just two the simple basic maintenance items that can easily be done by any woman (or man).
