Almost everyone has heard of a cabin air filter if they own newer vehicles. You might have even seen it in the maintenance schedule of your Toyota Sienna owners manual. If you replace it yourself, you can save money on labor charges from repairs stations. Cabin air filters help prevent pollutants and allergens from getting inside the passenger cab of the vehicle. Filters clog after time and need to be replaced. Refer to your owners manual for recommended maintenance replacement of the cabin air filter.
