One of the dirtiest Cabin Filters I've changed.

My 2020 Audi Q3 only has 22k.

Thankfully it was so much easier to change compared to my 2015 Nissan Murano.

Get a washable filter. I never looked back. I got the K&N one off Amazon (yeah I didn't know they made furnace filters too).

I'll throw my hat in the ring here... pulled this out of a Pontiac Vibe. Bought brand new by my sister, I changed the filter when I got it from her.

Aren't these filter's suppose to check every 6 months to 1 years time period?

How y'all get them so dirty?? seems like y'all never check them or when in for service, the technicians don't check them.

Rural dirt roads.

I assume that's how OP got it so dirty. (Assuming the yellow one on the bottom was the old dirty filter).
