Indoor air filters - Dust and pollen filters for good ambient air - buy online at low cost
On every car journey, clean air inside the car contributes significantly to driving and travelling comfort. However, exhaust fumes from all vehicles in road traffic as well as pollen and other external influences can have a strong influence on the air and climate inside the vehicle. A cabin air filter is used to filter the most important particles out of the air. Since they also filter pollen, they are sometimes also referred to as pollen filters and dust filters.. Learn more

The cabin filter for your car is installed as part of the air conditioning system. This allows you to benefit equally from cooled and clean air, so that you can enjoy a pleasant indoor climate in the passenger compartment during the summer months. It is important to check the condition of the dust filter and pollen filter at regular intervals, as they are gradually clogged with dirt, dust and pollen. You can buy the suitable cabin filters for your car at Q-Parts24 at a favourable price. Our range includes other filters such as oil filters, fuel filters and air filters.
Function of the cabin filter and possible problems
Internal cabin filters can be easily inserted and exchanged as handy automotive parts with a small housing. Depending on the series and manufacturer, they are offered in different formats such as rectangular or square with different frame thicknesses. In earlier years, pure particle filters were installed, which were primarily intended to collect soot and dust from the ambient air. Today, these are multi-layer combi-filters that are used as cabin filters and also remove pollen and other sources of disturbance from the ambient air. In these filters, the classic fleece layer of the filters is supplemented by an additional filter made of activated carbon, which binds a large number of other pollutants.
Internal filters are classic wearing parts that become clogged over the course of months and thus lose their filter function. Typical problems that occur with a cabin filter, its frame and other accessories are:
- partial or complete clogging of the filter
- cracks and holes in the filter fabric
- loss of filter properties of the activated carbon
- physical damage, e.g. in case of accidents
A blockage of the filter does not only have an influence on the room climate. Allergy sufferers in particular feel when the filter loses its effect. In the worst case, the accumulation of pollen can concentrate in the filter. If the ventilation is then switched on for the first time after a long period of time and operated at high speeds, a high concentration of pollen is distributed in the interior and causes considerable health problems.
At what signs do I recognize the failure of a cabin filter ?
- "misty" or steamed-up windows
- restricted function of the air conditioning system insufficient air pressure during fan operation
Which causes lead to problems with the cabin filter
The most important cause is the wear and tear of the filter, which cannot be avoided with any automotive filter from oil filter to fuel filter. However, the cabin air filter in the car may also have been installed incorrectly and unprofessionally, so that dust or pollen can get past the fabric and into the interior of the car. Other causes that indicate problems with the filter are:
- Exceeding the lifetime specified by the manufacturer
- Frequent trips on dusty roads and in the off-road area
- Penetration of moisture into the filter
- Absorption of gases and other chemicals during fan operation
The slow clogging of the filter is shown by the decreasing effect of the air circulation. In the autumn and winter months, the windows of the car steam up very quickly from the inside. Unpleasant odours are not uncommon if the filter is clogged for a long time without replacing the corresponding spare part. In addition, the heating power may decrease or cause a smoky smell when the heating is switched on. To prevent these and other problems, most manufacturers recommend replacing these car parts every 10,000 kilometres.
Replace spatial filter and associated spare parts yourself ?
Even laymen can change the cabin filter in a car without any great expertise. A repair of the filter is not possible or the mere replacement of the fabric is not worthwhile in comparison to the purchase of these new car parts. The filter is usually only attached to the vehicle by clamps or screws, which can be easily loosened. The removal and insertion of the filter is then done in a few simple steps.
If you want to change the cabin filter in your car, make sure you insert it precisely. The fabric should not be damaged during replacement, and the frame should also fit exactly into the anchorage provided. If this is not the case, slits are created through which dust and pollen can enter the interior of the car unhindered. For this reason it is also important to choose high-quality filters from well-known brands. Only with these can you be assured of the exact dimensions that will ensure that the cabin air filters in your vehicle function perfectly.
