Like in any other air-conditioning system, the air filter in an EcoSport needs to be replaced every once in a while. My local dealership recommends replacing or cleaning the cabin filter every 20,000 to 30,000 km, or 1 to 2 years, depending on how often the vehicle is used and the environment it is exposed to. Cleaning of the filter is included in EcoSport’s Periodic Maintenance Schedule (PMS). A technician usually replaces the filter when it is due for replacement, but you may also opt to perform the procedure yourself.
Replacing or cleaning will require some disassembly of the panels, but it is not difficult to do. The whole process takes only about 30 minutes to 1 hour. It requires no special tools other than an Allen wrench and a screw driver.
A clean filter ensures that your vehicle does not only operate at maximum cooling efficiency, but it also means that the air that blows from the vent is fresh and clean.
ACCESS IS FREE, BUT HELP IS APPRECIATED
Through this blog, I intend to share things that I discover with our EcoSport. To donate a liter of gas to EcoSport DIY Series, click here.
