    Hey guys,
    I've been meaning to replace my cabin air filter (I don't do Tesla recommended service, yet anyway).
    Is there a 3rd party source for these? Are they better quality/price?
    Does Tesla Service sell them to me as a part? Price?
    Is there a Youtube video or step by step on how to do this?
    Thanks guys!

    A Tesla service center will sell you one for ten or fifteen dollars. Unless, of course, you have bioweapon defense.

    How often do you have to replace them?

    I havent yet after almost 2 years, so I think I'm long overdue.... Guessing it should be every 6 or 12 months. Not much risk except a duster interior I don't think.

    Sometimes you can used compressed air to blow the dust off or just vacuum the filter if it is not completely covered with dust and dirt.

    This is the simple procedure, at least for a Classic Model S.

    You'll want to replace it when your cabin starts smelling exhaust while behind ICE vehicles / in tunnels :)

    10-20 bucks at your local SC. Changing it for your self is easy peasy

    I assume the Bioweapon filters are more costly?
