Mitsubishi Cedia DIY - Cabin Air Filter Installation
After reading about the Cedia not having a cabin air filter for the AC got me thinking why not install one ?
The Cedia doesn't come with a AC cabin filter so all the dust/Dirt and grime get accumulated in the AC motor which needs to be cleaned every 30,000KM or so.
Went to the Local mitsu A.S.S to ask them about this. Yes they have it in stock and were willing to fix it but - but a BIG BUT! the price
Rs 3,800 + taxes for the cabin air filter
+ some fitting charge
Yea right this got me thinking. Why not try and get something locally.
Removing the Glove box and making the cutting was quite easy. Follow the steps on this video.
With the glove compartment fully dismantled, and I had already made the cutting for the cabin airfilter. I started hunting around for the cabin airfilter. Being a relatively new car the AC wasn't that dirty.
Bad luck nothing fits this! Thinking what next. Kept driving around without the glove box for 2 weeks.
Cleaning the house one weekend I found the old cabin airfilter from the Figo. Now this got me thinking? Will this fit?
Went down and tried it. Its a near perfect fit but its a bit too long.
Went home and cut the filter down to size and stuck with some M-seal .
Stuck a layer of thin sponge around the filter so that it doesn't rattle or jump around in our glorious Bangalore roads.
Next I wanted something that can filter out the dust/mud. So added a layer of filter cloth and in it went into the Ceida.
Fixed everything back and started up the AC!
Immediately I could feel the difference. No more dust/dirt was being thrown out from the AC vents.
AC effectiveness was the same, I could feel no change in the air throw output.
Overall I am very happy with this.
Total cost -
Figo cabin filter - 320rs + some old sponge + some feviquick
not more than 350rs.
Below are the pics,

Re: Mitsubishi Cedia DIY - Cabin Air Filter Installation
I think if we undergo a small course of car mechanics, of a day or two, there should be enough initial knowledge, that be helpful at times. Anyone who knows any such course, please post here, could help anyone interested..
(Just an Idea, not sure if discussed anywhere) - Would also love TBhp to organize some kind of crash course.. and provide a "TBhp Certificate"
