The grey stuff is activated carbon and if they don't have it then they don't benefit from the filtering properties of it.

I don't think cleaning will result in nearly as good filtering as a new part.

I own a 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage as well as a 2012 imiev es. I had ordered a cabin filter for my mirage a while ago and did a search for filter by sizes and they are both pretty close. I popped the mirage filter in my imiev and it fit almost perfect. No expensive or imported filter necessary. Mirage cabin filters can be had pretty cheap especially if you get the ones without charcoal.

Good to know.

I just pulled mine yesterday. Still pretty clean, but I was able to knock a little dirt out.

Cabin Air Filter

Mon Feb 06, 2017 3:11 pm

I know there is a tread some place for the Cabin air filter, I just can't find it.

I wanted to share that a member on the i miev en francais ( In French)
facebook group posted....
He has found out that the i Miev cabin air filter & the Mirage filter are the same.
The price being 1/2 for the Mirage here in Canada.
I personally have not tried this to confirm.
Might save someone a few $s

sandange, thanks for the post. I moved it over to this thread. My cabin air filters stay so clean that all I do is give them a brief blast with compressed air.

:evil: :x

Sign me up for the next group purchase. Pulled my filter out last night and found that a mouse had been chewing on it. At least it was on the outside-facing side of the filter.

I was hoping to avoid needing to purchase a replacement at all, as this one is still clean, minus the holes.

FYI - These still appear to be available here:

Cabin Filter » JS » AC304J

I haven't checked other sources like Amazon or eBay yet, so you may want to look around for the best prices.

BTW, jjlink managed to restore the photographs showing the filter and its location in the car. Thank you.
