Cabin Air Filter in Decatur, GA


The cabin air filter is generally a pleated paper filter placed in the outside air intake to the passenger compartment, and is designed to remove dust pollen, mold, spores and other contaminants as the outside air enters your vehicle.A clogged or dirty cabin air filter can significantly reduce air flow cabin vents, increase the load on the blower motor, and allow allergens sent to the cabin air stream. We recommend changing the cabin air filter every 12 months or 12,000 miles or whenever necessary. Refer to your owner’s manual for specific intervals. Failure to change a clogged cabin air filter can greatly reduce the effectiveness of the vehicle’s air conditioning and heating system and could cause premature failure of other system components. Replacing the blower motor could cost $300 or more. Running your A/C with a clogged filter won’t cause any vehicle safety issues, but it could significantly affect the quality of the air your passengers breathe and might make them even more uncomfortable if the system does not adequately heat or cool the cabin. From an environmental point of view, failure of your cabin air filter will lead to higher levels of allergens inside the passenger compartment.

You don’t enjoy breathing in odors, dirt, and grime in your home, so you regularly change the filters in your heating and air conditioning system. So why wouldn’t you do the same thing for your car? The cabin air filter ensures that air being circulated through your climate control system is clean and odor-free. However, if you don’t change it, you will lose the effectiveness of the filter.

While we suggest that you change the cabin air filter in your precision European automobile according to manufacturer guidelines, the following symptoms may also indicate the need to have it replaced:

  • Reduced airflow through the system
  • The fan is noisy but little air is coming out
  • Persistent bad odors
  • An extended engine life
  • Reduced dirt and debris build-up



The luxurious, high-performance vehicles from BMW, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, VW, and MINI include some of the most advanced cabin air filters and micro filters being used. This ranges from standard HEPA filters, to Mercedes-Benz’s sealed micro-fiber system, to advanced charcoal and microparticle filtrations systems.

Because we specialized only in European automobiles, we understand what it takes to perform the delicate cabin air filter replacements and servicing required to keep these advanced air conditioning systems working properly better than a dealership or other independent repair shop. When it comes to the air you breathe, are you going to take it to a repair shop where they will use subpar, aftermarket filters?

At Revolution, we use only OE cabin air filters and micro filters. This means you are getting the filters that are meant to work with your vehicle, and that will continue to provide you with clean, clear air. Our technicians are more than just mechanics, they are European automotive enthusiasts, and they can give you pointers on improving the functions of your filters as well as any maintenance steps you can take to prolong the life of the filters.

Dealership quality and professional experience without the dealer$hip price tag.

I've used the Revolution team for years and have always received great service above and beyond my expectations.  They even point me back to the MB dealer to take care of areas covered by warranties and recalls ( = a big savings).

It's refreshing to see an owner so involved -- Matt always takes time to discuss the issues and review my options.  And Tammy runs a smooth process, making sure they deliver when she says they will.

They only thing I would change: it's hard to see the shop on DeKalb industrial across from the Kroger shopping center.  I think I drive past it every time.

5Stars  I wish I could give them another * for honesty and speed
