K&N Introduces 2005-18 Chevrolet Corvette Cabin Air Filter

New from K&N – the 2005-2018 Chevrolet Corvette Cabin Air Filter. This filter features a washable and reusable upgrade that cleans and freshens incoming air. See more details below.

Official Release:

The Chevrolet Corvette seems to always have been connected with open air motoring, after all the first Corvette was a convertible and the first Corvette with a permanent top didn’t appear until almost a decade later. Even when the convertible model was dropped during the run of the C3, it was replaced by a T-top option that provided at least some of the feeling of an open car. A convertible option returned for the C4 and continues through to today’s C7.

But there are times when open air motoring isn’t entirely pleasant, and we don’t mean during a rain storm. Regardless of whether you own a 2005 – 2018 Corvette convertible or coupe, whether the top is down or just the windows, unseen invaders are grabbing a ride in your car and they can make your trip miserable. Dust, pollen, spores, bacteria, and other allergens are entering the cockpit.

You can roll-up the windows and receive protection inside the closed cockpit by virtue of the fact that your Corvette is equipped with a cabin air filter. A cabin air filter is the first line of defense for what you breathe. Since it’s a filter, it’s an item that requires maintenance. You will find the recommended replacement interval in your factory owner’s manual, but there are a number of conditions that could shorten those intervals.

For example, if you drive in an area with sand or dust in the air, you might find that these particulates have collected on your filter and have reduced air flow through your HVAC system so that even when you turn the A/C to high you get more noise than cold air. Another is persistent bad odors that come from bacteria or mold growing on the filter in cars in operated in damp climates.

There is an option to replacing your disposable cabin air filter that will just end up in a landfill. K&N cabin air filters are the first of their kind designed to replace your vehicle’s stock cabin air filter with a washable and reusable upgrade that cleans and freshens incoming air.

K&N cabin air filters are manufactured from a non-woven synthetic filter media that’s electrostatically charged to grab and hold dust and other airborne particles. K&N cabin air filters also help control odors while they help capture most mold, mildew, fungus, spores, bacteria, and germs.

K&N cabin air filters are easy to replace your Corvette’s cabin air filter. Replacing the cabin air filter is a quick operation – it is as simple as exchanging the old, dirty filter for a new one. The housing for the filter is located under the hood, and the filter is accessed by removing a few clips.

A detailed installation instruction sheet is provided on the VF3018 product web page for the installation of the VF3018 cabin air filter in 2005-2018 Corvette coupes and convertibles. K&N cabin air filters are designed to fit your Corvette perfectly and seal tightly, thanks to the precision-engineered frame. In addition, each filter comes pre-treated and is ready to install straight out of the box. Besides the Corvettes already listed, the VF3018 also fits 2005-2009 Cadillac XLR, which was based on the Corvette C5.

The only maintenance required for a K&N cabin air filter is a service you can do yourself in no time at all. At intervals of 50,000 miles, using a K&N 99-6000 cabin air filter cleaning kit, you can easily renew and re-oil your air filter, which brings it back to brand-new condition and ready to protect your car’s cabin for another 50,000 miles.

Your K&N cabin air filter is designed to last for the life of your vehicle, which is guaranteed by the K&N 10-Year/Million Mile Limited Warranty.
