We already offer HEPA air filters for your Model 3/Y, but if you're looking for a straight replacement for your factory filters, then you're in the right place. Each kits comes with everything you need:
- 2 x cabin air filters
- T20 allen key
- Pry tool (trim removal)
Made as a perfect replacement for the factory filters (p/n 1107681-00-A), these filter particulates down to 8-10 microns. the project is moderately easy, but does require the removal of a trim piece, and the location of the cabin filters is awkward, and made more frustrating by a poorly placed retaining screw. Prepare for installation with some cod liver oil for flexibility, as you'll need to be a bit bendy to work in the footwell. The step by step instructions are below, but Tesla also has a really easy guide here.
- Clear the footwell area on the passenger side
- Pull away the carpet trim panel by grasping an edge and pulling it away. This is held in place with spring clips, so don't be shy when using a little force to remove it.
- Now remove the panel above the footwell when the light is. This is held in place by pop-clips, you'll need a Spudger or flat-blade screwdriver to remove them.
- Now you have access to the filter location, pull the orange cable out of the way.
- The filter compartment is behind the orange cable at the top. A single T20 torque screw hold the panel in place. The screw is at the top of the panel (WHY Tesla, WHY??), so acces it very restricted. Some customer have found the screw is loose and you can unscrew it with the T20 bit and just your fingers, but otherwise you'll need a flexible screwdriver or we use a mini ratcheting screwdriver. It's a good, cheap addition to your toolbox.
- Once the screw is out, the panel just levers out and can be removed.
- There are 2 filters inside, grab the tab to remove the top one, then grab the other tab to lift and remove the bottom one.
- Inserting the filers is the reverse of the above. Ensure the tabs are in the correct place (at the top for the lower filter, and the bottom for the top filter), and avoid scuffing the foam seal around the new filters, as this helps ensure a great seal.
