My new Brio also has a similar chapter on AC filter maintenance and the procedure look similar too. I will check and revert back. However, I wish to know if I drive my car 100% AC in re-circulation mode, is it still necessary to have this filter?

Check @AutoIndian s indicated thread for the details.
Which thread? Can you paste a link here? Then how come that this filter finds a mention among the spare parts list? I doubt if someone has the competence here ( in the middle of nowhere I am) to do the entire service. How difficult it is to remove and refix the dashboard with perfect alignment?

If you're in warranty/extended warranty, then stick to the A.S.S.

If you're outside warranty, look for any recommended automotive AC technician, or ask a friendly neighbourhood garage for a recommendation. The mechanical (i.e. non-electrical) part of automotive AC systems are pretty much standard in most/all cars.

My 2010 Fiesta has a Cowl filter that filters the outside air and a cabin filter that filters the cabin air. Got the cowl filter replaced and cabin filter cleaned during the service 2 weeks back. Personally saw them doing the same.

Hi pramodpk, could you tell me how much it cost to replace the cowl filter for your fiesta and does it really make a difference in the air conditioning post replacement?

I am not sure of the exact cost as the car is company leased and the bill is sent to the company but it must be really cheap. Replacing it would take around 30 mins. The cowl filter is used in fresh air mode and hence it would affect airflow only in fresh air mode if it is clogged. Mine was not clogged as I use fresh air mode rarely.

When I checked at the dealership today it is not even listed. The diagram is there, but no part number. So obviously Honda India has been economising. Part no. seems to be 80292SMGE01 and fits all models. The site says 2006-2011.

When I pulled out the tray I found dust and a few leaves - so getting it may be highly desirable,

This problem seems to be a problem with Maruti also.

They are puzzled when asked about the AC filter and are misunderstanding it for the air filter. Part number does exist for the AC filter (don't remember it though).

A very important part for interior cleanliness an quality of air.

The indica Vista and Manza have one. If anybody would like to know where it is located let me know as I cleaned mine a couple of months ago and know how to go about doing it.

The Puntos and Lineas have a pollen filter for AC within the cabin before the cooling coil.

This filter is a long term investment, since it will definitely reduce clogging and collection of debris in the evaporator. I saw in the manual that Brio also should have one. My car is in for service and some body work and is expected back tomorrow. I am sure I will find zilch there. There seems to be a firm by the name of Arrowhead filters in Manesar. I am trying to persuade them to make and supply these.

I am using it in my civic for the last 3 years. I get it from US.
Air flow is slightly reduced, but the advantages are immense. However, best to change after every 6-8 months, depending on dust conditions, to avoid heavy reduction in air flow.

And, all the air that passes over the blower motor, whether on re-circulation mode or fresh air mode, passes through the air filter and removes dust.

I think in a dusty and polluted country like ours, it is a shame that manufacturers skimp on this necessity.

I guess it is cost cutting and not thatvyhe points is skimped as it exists in drawing but not in reality.

Where is the awareness in the owner to cjwck on this parameters. We have to add these point in the Team-BHP PDI check list and if it didn't exist it would be fit before delivery.
