Why does it need to be changed?
Your air filter stops dirt and dust particles entering the engine. Just like your vacuum cleaner, it needs to be kept clean to work properly.
What happens if it's not changed?
Fresh air is vital for your car's engine to perform well. If the air filter is not replaced when needed it could lead to a drop in performance as the engine tries to 'breathe' through a dirty filter. Your car could then be difficult to start.
What do we do?
We remove the old filter; check and clean the housing and hoses; then fit a new filter.
How often does it need to be changed?
Changing it is part of a major service.
