it's possible that you broke it.I force remove my ac filter on is350 2007. For few hour it didn't even close the 3 rd door. Now it work after few mannual open close with my hang. now everytime I turn ac to recirculator mode . the door that cover the filter open but never close. It that normal? How come the automatic mode close ties. But not the circulate mode? did I broke it
My cars are always on recirculate mode. The air filter may trap dust and pollen but it doesn't filter out smells or chemicals. I'd rather not breathe a bunch of carbon monoxide and all the smells of the traffic!As far as I can understand the broken bracket would make the re-circulating setting inoperable. Most people avoid using the recirculating setting as it causes fogging of the windows. Why would someone be inclined to spend such an exorbitant amount of money for something so unimportant?
Just wondering... because the amount seems almost ridiculous!
The filter is working fine. The problem is, there is either mold or dust/dirt in your vents. This is why I always run the air, even if the A/C is off. You should never turn off the air circulation completely.Here's a question for everyone. Has anyone else experienced a musty smell coming from the HVAC system after running the A/C? When I run the A/C and turn off the car, when I start it up, regardless of how long, the musty smell is very noticable coming out of the dashboard vents. I have had the cabin filter changed twice and the smell continues. A possible design flaw??
Any comments are appreciated.
I haven't tried it yet on my IS2000. But I am planning to. I'll need to buy a replacement first.
