I bought a prius a few days ago and I've been going through my normal fluid and filter checks. Overall this car has been telling me its been unloved for quite a while. Glad i swapped out this filter. $14 and 2 minutes seems well worth it. (Hopefully I attached this picture correctly)

Yeah, someone didn't care for that car based on your posts.

Yeah that's a disgusting filter. Just judging by the discoloration and buildup of gunk, it's clearly been installed in that car for years.

The replacement filter seems so much smaller, no? But like everyone else has mentioned, that old filter was nasty.

Seems like my 6-month filter looks like this due to parking under a tree in a rural area.

Great to have a new filter in there though!

Yeah. Size difference is disconcerting.

The filter is held in a plastic frame. I hadn’t transferred in the new filter yet since dirt was going to fall out of it.

Wow - doubt that was ever touched since it was put on in the factory. Did you get any funky smells from the HVAC before you changed this? I could imagine it did not smell too luxurious.

No funky smells. But the dealer "detailed" the car right before i bought it. Basically hosed the whole interior with smelly product. Possibly to cover up a funk from the cabin filter.

A few years ago we went on a cruise so my Mazda3 was parked in the driveway for a couple of weeks. The first time I started it up the AC didn’t work. Here’s what came out of the blower:

This used to be the soundproofing under the hood.
