EBay is just crazy right?! Thanks for the info! One question, does your new filter have the gasket that runs around it? Mine has one that is glued in-place around the exterior.

Thanks for the link! I ordered one too. However, it was a really tight fit to install. Anyone else run into this problem?

Funny you should mention that. I just finished replacing mine. Btw I also bought it because of this thread and from the eBay store. Mine was a tight fit as well but I think it was due to the foam ring around it. 17k+ miles later. You can really see the it needed to be replaced.

Wow, you definitely needed a new one. Mine was pretty dirty as well, after 10k miles. I had to practically jam mine in there. You get what you pay for, so the quality and fitment may not be upto par with the OEM part. However, it should still do its job!

Were you starting to get a funny smell inside the cabin when you first turned on your A/C? That's what caused me to look into a new Cabin Air Filter.

mine was tight also.the rubber seal around the parameter looks thicker than the oem I pulled out.27,000 miles and mine looked about like rock stars.just a tip,push down on the outside edges by the rails and not in the middle of the filter or it could crack !!!

It is a pretty tight fit. Maybe take a pic of the old one before removing it just to give you a good reference when installing the new one. How far it should be pushed down in the slot.

Just rewarded myself with this deal. Great fit, fast shipping, A+++.

I too got to thinking about it because of a musty smell with the initial AC usage this season. Just put it in this morning, no word if it fixed it....but mine was visibly dirty and this was a good idea anyway.

If you can stand the stuff, spray some Lysol down in the filter cavity before replacing the old filter with the new one. It kills smelly things.

I ordered two from the e-bay site that was shown 2 months ago and only received one. The seller taped the two filters boxes together and sent it one it's merry way. When I got the one you could see the cheap clear tape was cut and the second one was gone. Finally got the seller to send me another one since the packaging job was so bad. Just an FYI.

OEM's are darker cause they are carbon impregnated.

Bump for reminder and an additional link to Rock Auto's selection. Note I only searched for the V-6, 2012. Are they all the same?
