    does anyone have any pics and or video of where the carbon and hepa filters actually go inside the model x ?
    I'm curious if an entire different set of hardware goes into the bio defense mode or is it just an empty space where the hepa filter would go ( + software)

    Here's the frunk filter. The large HEPA is only used with outside air.
    Is there a cabin filter when you operate in recirculation?

    There is another cabin air particulate filter inside the gloves compartment, bit difficult to remove the trim, entire glove box and to gain access to replace this. This filter is smaller in size rectangular with a cut in a corner. I could not spot any aftermarket one on this. This is to be replaced every 12500 miles - page 132.
    The HEPA (Bioweapon defence) cabin air filter inside the Frunk is available in Amazon for less than $100 and it's easier to replace. I could not see the replacement frequency on this- page 130. Looks like I'm confused with both the filters?
