    Cabin air filter replacement

    I made one final video this morning, showing the cabin air filter replacement procedure. Pretty simple, but sometimes it's nice to watch it being done first.

    I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to replace the filter. Zero tools needed. It's even easier to do when you're not holding your phone with one hand and squeezing the glove compartment side with your other. I was also surprised at how dirty it was after just 3 weeks of owning the car (which had previously been in the showroom). As easy as it was to get to the filter, I'll be popping it out and tapping out the big chunks of leaves whenever I change the oil.

    Yes, we were affected by the mid-west "derecho" of June 2012. My wife called me while I was on the way home from work and said, "Everything is fine, but the tree fell over." We had about a 40' or so pine tree in the front yard. It missed our house, it missed our neighbors house, and it fell right into the street where nobody was parked. And we had the joy of being without power for a week, right in the middle of the kitchen renovation I was doing.

    For USA I found one that is 10$ shipped on ebay

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/292459418447

    Do you think its possible to keep cleaning the filter or does it need to be replaced each time?

    This looks like a very good price. Recommend you guys to buy it ahead of time and keep it in storage so that you dont have to pay 20$ next time
