Let’s talk Cabin Air Filter Replacement
Well…..this weekend I replaced the cabin air filter on my 2005 S40 2.4i. I can honestly say it was one of the more difficult things I have done to my car due to the lack of room to maneuver & the @#$%^ lock nuts that hold the gas pedal on.
The most important piece of advice I can give you is to lay a blanket or a small pillow on the driver seat rail base (door side) so it doesn’t dig into your ribs. It still hurts after 2 days.
I also recommend replacing the lock nuts with non-lock nuts. Getting to the top 2 lock nuts & putting them back on was difficult.
This is a 15k mile recommended maintenance item.
