I’d imagine that for most people, changing their van’s cabin air filter is like flossing. We all know we’re supposed to do it. We all know it would be healthier for us. But it’s probably not really hurting anything to leave it alone. Plus, it just sounds boring to spend time actually doing it. So… we don’t.
But the good news here is that in addition to being easy (Stef, who’s not a trained mechanic, replaces ours in this video), it also TAKES LESS TIME THAN FLOSSING!!! Check it out.
So – if you’ve got a ProMaster (whether it’s an RV or not), the very first thing you’ll need to pull this off is a fresh cabin air filter. We get ours off Amazon, and the one you see in the video is here:
You’ll also need a Phillips screwdriver, which I imagine most people have. You’ll need one that’s neither too long, nor too short – you’ll see why when you look at the screws for yourself. There’s a screen above and lip near the screws that may get in your way, so the length of the driver comes into play. Stef just uses a multi-driver we had in the van for this video.
But once you’ve got those things, it’s pretty much a snap, as Stef demonstrates.
So, now you’ve got no excuse. Go change your cabin air filter!
PS: I do floss, by the way. (sometimes)
