The air around us can carry many contaminants, such as dust, dirt, exhaust soot and major allergens. Your car’s cabin air filter keeps these contaminants from entering the passenger compartment, so you only breathe in fresh air. Over time, however, the cabin air filter will fill up with dirt and contaminants and no longer do the job. If your A/C system is not as efficient as it used to be or you get an unpleasant odor from your vents, it might be time to change your cabin air filter.


Changing the cabin air filter on your Porsche Macan is so easy that virtually anyone can do it. To get an overview of the procedure, check out this video from the YouTube channel, Saul V. Detailed step-by-step instructions, along with the parts and tools you’ll need, can be found below.

  1. The cabin air filter is inside the car, underneath the glove compartment. Just under the glove compartment, in the passenger footwell, locate the cabin air filter cover. It is made from foamy plastic material as seen in this video.

  2. Remove the three plastic screws that hold the plastic cover in place. You can remove these screws by hand.

  3. The cabin filter is held in place by a plastic retaining bracket. Slide the bracket to right to set it free.

  4. Pull the cabin air filter out and be mindful of the orientation. There’s a notched corner facing the right side.

  5. Inset the new cabin air filter in the same orientation.

  6. Reinstall all remaining parts in reverse order.

  7. You’re all done!
