Hey everyone, I was just wondering if VPs have a cabin air filter? I did a search and someone said VEs were the first to have a filter, but in that case what's stopping the fan from blowing dirt in your face? The reason I ask is because, well at the moment I am getting dirt blown in my face . Not so much dirt, but whenever I turn the fan on I can feel particles irritating my eyes (they are very sensitive). I don't get this problem in other cars I ride in, so I'm just trying to figure out what's going on.
i don't think they've got a filter, i've noticed leaves in the vents before, PITA, they make a buzz at full fan.
hhah I used to work in a vineyard and drive on red gravel all day, YOU DO get dirt in your face, my VP had red rivers of dust flowing out of all the vents for a couple of years . I believe you can fit a filter to the vents, aftermarket style
hehe aftermarket it is then . i'll take the vents off and see if i can stick some kind of filter just behind them
VT commodores have a cabin filter under the passenger side big plastic wiper arm cover between bonnet and winsheild. its just a small wire mesh filter, mine was full of crap when i cleaned it.
I keep getting shit in my eyes. Mine is from the crap coming from my hood lining. I need to
re-glue it. I think it is the old glue or the backing board falling apart. You may have the same
When i say hood lining , i mean the roof lining !
thanks for the input guys
stage 1: investigation. LOOOOTS of shit behind the plastic cover. cleaned all that out. this is what it now looks like (sorry didn't get a before photo)
i am going to get some steel mesh to put over that hole, then i found some of this lying in my house to use as a filter
depending on when i get that steel mesh, should be done next weekend
You should try and get a HEPA filter that size froma vacuum cleaner or something
VS II have a plastic screen fitted over the intake hole. That might be worth a look in place of the steel mesh.
thanks for that! i found a hepa filter on ebay but it's about 70mm too short, so i would have to figure out how to make it tight and fit nicely so it actually did filter all the air
i will go to the wreckers tomorrow and grab something off a vs (or even vt if the hole is the same size)
