Volvo V70 Acc Cabin Filter

Problems Caused by a Dirty Volvo V70 ACC Cabin Filter

You probably thought that a dirty Volvo V70 ACC cabin filter isn't so bad. Well, think again. You'll surely change your mind after reading the potential problems that it may cause.


A dirty Volvo V70 ACC cabin filter can be a health hazard. It's because all the grime that your cabin filter has collected may be released into your cabin if the buildup of impurities is too significant. When that happens, the air that you'll be breathing inside your V70 will contain a lot of dust, pollen and other allergens. Those suffering from allergies won't find this to be pleasing, to say the least. So if you're prone to allergies, you might want to change your cabin filter a bit more often.

Humid Air

If your car air-conditioning system isn't functioning properly, you may have to rely on good old fresh air from the outside. Naturally, you'll think that you have no choice but to go windows down. However, you don't want to do that because aside from air, dirt, dust, and smoke will make their way inside your V70. Well, you wouldn't have to open your windows to let air in, actually. Air can make its way inside your vehicle just fine by coursing through your air-conditioning system's fan and cabin filter. The only way that air won't be able to reach you is if your filter is clogged. If this is the case, you'll have to make do with the air that's already inside your cabin. The problem with that is it won't take long before that air becomes humid and develops an odor. That would be quite uncomfortable for you, of course.

Constant Misting of Windows

Your V70's windows will be constantly misted if your cabin filter is soiled. This is a result of the limited airflow inside your cabin. And as you know, mist can be a major safety hazard since it can severely affect your road vision.

Mold and Mildew

Yes, even mold and mildew can be a byproduct of a dirty Volvo V70 ACC cabin filter. These will eventually develop if you opt to continue using your old cabin filter. Aside from being health hazards, they can also cause damage to your V70's interior.

  • Maintenance Tips: Volvo V70 ACC Cabin Filter

    Your Volvo V70 ACC cabin filter may be hidden from plain view, but it tremendously helps in keeping you comfortable. After all, your cabin filter prevents dust, pollen, and other allergens from making their way inside your V70. For that reason, it's important that you put effort into its maintenance. Below are the ways to take care of your Volvo V70 ACC cabin filter:

    Clean your cabin filter regularly.

    The part that does the cleaning needs the same treatment as well. Washing your Volvo V70 ACC cabin filter is definitely a good idea since doing so will prolong its lifespan and get rid of the allergens (which can be dangerous to your health) that are on it. Cleaning it will also allow you to save money since you won't have to buy a replacement cabin filter more frequently.

    Here's how to go about it. Start things off by detaching your Volvo V70 ACC cabin filter and shaking it (make sure to have a dust mask and protective goggles on) in a trash can. Doing this should already get rid of a significant amount of contaminants that are on your cabin filter. If there are debris in your filter (such as twigs or leaves), remove them manually by hand. Once you've shaken off everything that can be shaken off, you can then proceed to vacuum your cabin filter. Wash it with soap and water afterwards. Finish the cleaning by rinsing your cabin filter and applying filter oil spray on the intake side.

    Check for signs of damage.

    Naturally, a damaged Volvo V70 ACC cabin filter won't do such a good job of filtering dust, pollen, and other allergens. And you wouldn't want that since the said allergens can affect your health, especially if you're prone to allergies. With that said, checking for signs of damage in your cabin filter is just as important as washing it. You can do this as you clean your cabin filter, although you probably won't be able to notice any signs of damage until you're done vacuuming it. If your cabin filter is indeed damaged, replace it as soon as you can.
