We have had the NB for a month, used car lot had put dryer sheets under the seats for smell. That had worn off and a new smell(not good) had replaced it. I was betting the cabin filter had never been replaced. It hadn't...
I decided it was time to check out the cabin filter situation.
As I figured, it was past due for replacement, with all the evidence of critters and filth from being in an area that is subjected to the infiltration of debris.
Scooping out the big stuff and a quick vacuuming job was followed by removal of the box that the filter sits in, so that I might gain access to all the crooks and nannies where there was a lot of built-up dreck.
A thorough cleaning of the area and the box and it's ready for installation of the new cabin filter, something that hasn't been replaced in many years.
