1999 RL Cabin Air Filter Replacement -EricTheCarGuy

Visit me at: www.ericthecarguy.com Discussion about this video: www.ericthecarguy.com I feel this is one of the more difficult cabin air filter replacements mainly because of the ‘little’ things you need to do to access them. My ‘special tools’ help a great deal and to be honest I’ve found them to be the best way to handle some parts of this procedure. As I say in the video replacement period is about every 30K.

    Not to knock your technique or anything, but what’s the point of wearing oil-stained gloves when working on the interior trim?

    reminds me of how much of a pain in the ass it is to change the Heating element thingy or whatver in a old Volvo 240 and 740, anyhows its like they built the car around that stupid thing that has a tendency to leak wich creates almost like a thin fog film on the windscreen due to evaporated anti freeze. and changin it on a VW Passat is just as much as a pain……

  • nightpwner says:

    Eric, this question is unrelated to this video: Could you please make a how to video with the Subaru on converting from rear drum to rear disc brakes? That video does not exist anywhere on Youtube. Please?

  • santi781 says:

    Eric looks like he may have smoked some herb prior to filming :)

  • legalman1980 says:

    He is a good mechanic but do you people watching realize that the mechanic gets paid for every video he makes? If you knew that you’d get paid for every video you make and post, then wouldn’t you post videos on the most insignificant topics and give narrow and vague comments so you could extend your number of videos in order to then give more concise answers & then improve on them?

  • blacuraRL says:

    That’s actually a 1998 Acura RL….. it’s the special edition, only available in ’98 with the 2-tone paint.

  • Michael Luscher says:

    I do as well, working on computers on a freelance people yelling at me basis. I have purchased sooo many computer screwdriver sets, yet never have the one i need when i need it……

  • Deyan Nikolov says:

    I’m so glad it’s easier to change it on my Saab! I try to change it every 6 months (an year tops) due to the air being pretty dirty around the place where I live. If I left it stay for a whole year it gets slightly dirtier than the one removed in the video.

  • CharlesP2009 says:

    What a pain in the neck, cabin air filter replacement is one thing Audi made super easy on my A4! :-)

  • Ken Rhodes says:

    Why does Eric wear gloves? They don’t seem to do much good when they’re ripped.

  • daveytn says:

    wow, so glad mine is just under the scuttle panel. takes less time then it took to write this lol. can’t believe how complex that is on this video!

  • daveytn says:

    can’t tell you how often i do that aswell, sometimes its easier using one tool “for all” instead of messing
    about choosing the exact one

  • djbazzmaster says:

    I think its the manufacturer’s fault that these filters get so full of crap . if they would actually be easy to replace ..people wouldn’t let them sit for years .. :)
