Cabin filter r170 2002
Have original filter I think (35000mls) but has been a smoker at some point
Have vacuumed the filter slats land it is clean but has residual smell
Can I wash it ??
Thats one thing that would put me off buying a car if it got smoked in .My car was owned by a heavy smoker, I mean everything was yellow. I pulled the filter and cleaned out a ton of leaves, etc out of it and blew it out. It still smelled so I turned it on high and sprayed a lot of Febreeze into the air intake. It took a couple of tries but that cured the horrid smell and didn't leave a flowery odor after a couple of days.
Febreeze is incredible stuff.
