Put it back in after checking it today, thoughts? How much longer you think I can take it?

Your filter change interval likely is 25K or 30K. I like 25K if not for real dusty conditions.

For what it cost, I change mine. But that is just me. It might look good but when I tap mine lightly on the top of our black trash can, you should see the fine dust that falls out.

I'd never pull a filter with the intention of reinstalling it.

You've got a valid point there roofless. I guess some cabin filters can be a bit of a pain. My vehicle takes less than 10 minutes though.

Some people are confusing engine air filters with cabin air filters again.

Who's getting what mixed up ? First image is a cabin filter and the second is an air filter.

Really? Sounds like you are criticizing others while not actually reading the posts in this thread.

First post shows a pic of a cabin air filter.

Second post by the same person shows a pic of an engine air filter.

The OP is obviously looking for two answers - one for his cabin air filter and one for his engine air filter.

Luckily for the OP, the answer to both questions is the same: Now that you have gone to the trouble of taking them both out, replace them with new filters and have a nice life!
