That is a good idea. What I do on any filter is write the mileage and date on the filter with a permant marker. At least the next guy will know how long it's been in there.

Default Quick a/c question in regards to cabin filter

It was stated that changing the cabin filter being changed helps with a/c performance. If my a/c starts blowing warm while at lights, do you think that changing the cabin filter, which has probably never been changed would make a difference.

Maybe but it probably isn't the actual fault. Check engine fans...

Default Cabin filter changed

I just got done changing the filter. I got the filter at autozone. The filter was an STP. It was twice the thickness of the one that was installed. Also, the removal of the torx screws are not necessary which might be why some members say there car does not have them

Default removal of torx screws for removal of cabin filter

I guess I was not descriptive enough. My 2005 Jag s-type 3.0 has the torx screws. But (on mine at least) I only took out the pop out screws and simply lifted the cover high enough which gave me just enough room to take the old filter out and new one in. I am sure I put a little stress on the plastic near the torx screws but from what i saw, not that much. It allowed me to do it in under five minutes.

The cabin filter is separate from the AC and its performance. It only filters in coming air into the passenger cabin. It does not filter the air already inside the car.

Default I did this today and thought I'd add this ..

Those four plastic pins require pushing IN in the center and then the entire assembly pulls out. When replacing them pull the center pin all the way out first. Insert the base and THEN insert the center pin.

I went over two more pins and one more torx retaining screw and it's a good thing I did. The main reason is to get more flexibility of the cover for easier removal end entry of the filter. It's a clumsy operation.

Once inside the filter retainer top snaps back towards the rear.

In my case I had a new windshield installed by the dealer last year and it seems that the two center torx screw heads were under the plastic trim instead of on top holding the plastic sealing molding against the windshield.

Sloppy dealer work.

Now that my cabin filter has been replaced twice since I've owned it plus a windscreen repair I have one broken plastic retaining pin and those rectangular covers for the torx screws have retaining tabs that are getting tired.

For the next service they should probably be replaced.

Install, reverse procedure

per passport to service manual, this filter should be changed every 10,000 miles (16090 km to our metric friends)

Quite a few of the plastic retainers and electrical connectors work differently from one location to another so knowing exactly what to do is very helpful.

If you guess wrong you can break them and on some of the hose connections that can be expensive not mention annoying. MY local body shop supply place doesn't carry all of these and since this is in an area that "shows" I'll be getting some Jag versions of these.

It gets nasty in there after years of forgetting to change the filter. I would also caution everyone to be careful when removing the cover. They get brittle and can crack in the weaker places. If it does, quick fix epoxy for plastic will make it new again. The torx screws at the back have a little black tightening ring. Don't let it fall off. Most stay in the fitting but not always.


The filters do work well.

Default MicroGard 3883 Cabin Air Filter from O'Reily $26.50

They also had one that was $40+ that was odor infused.
So I picked up some Gonesh Sticks (Sandal Wood) and cut them to wedged between the filter folds (every other one) on the inward side. If the Sandal Wood odor lasts long enough I will replace the sticks because it is relatively easy to get at the filter.
P.S. I just purchased this Jaguar S Type R with 63k miles Monday, Sept 17th.

Sure it wasn't August?

Why not tell us all about it in the new members area?

Now all he needs is a Patchouli oil change and he'll have a fully fledged hippie S-Type!

So maybe it was September after all ...
