A friend with a car must have such a feeling, the maintenance of the vehicle is a small expense, no matter what maintenance, as long as you enter the 4S shop, let alone the accessories, the light time is A lot of money, is there really no way to save some money? In theory, the car is a rigorous and complicated machine, any operation related to it needs to be carried out at a professional repair station, but in real life There are some accessories that are not related to the machine itself. They can also be replaced and inspected by themselves. It not only increases the understanding of the vehicle but also saves a lot of money. It is indeed a matter of killing two things.

●Replacement of air-conditioning filter recommended index: ★★★☆☆
The replacement interval of air-conditioning filters for most models is 1 year. Of course, vehicles in different vehicle environments need to be adjusted according to their own conditions. In addition to the difficulty of replacing a few models due to the installation location, many models of air conditioning filters can be replaced by themselves.
First of all, you should know the location of your car’s air-conditioning filter. You can get the answer from the vehicle manual or the 4S shop. The air-conditioning filter of the general vehicle is below the center console (the left and right are uncertain). There is no difficulty in the process of replacement. It is nothing more than removing the outer casing and taking out the filter element and replacing it with new ones. Since the position of the air-conditioning filter element of each car is different, the disassembly and assembly method is also different. We will not introduce it in detail here, but need to pay attention to it. Some vehicles are dismantled in a fixed order or require some tools and techniques. You can consult the worker’s master during maintenance and go home and try several times according to the formal method.
With this method, the owner can check the accessories regularly. When the air conditioner filter is found to be dirty but has not reached the replacement level, it can be cleaned easily. However, it should be noted that the air conditioner filter should not be washed and cleaned. Otherwise, the filter element is easily rotted when it meets water. At the same time, the purchase of new accessories is an aspect that needs attention. Try to choose a more regular accessory store to purchase. Otherwise, in order to save a few maintenance money, it is not only a waste of money, but also a loss for both the vehicle and the car.

Conditional owners can ask the maintenance master during the previous maintenance. After one or two exercises, they can be proficient in operation, which is simple and saves maintenance costs.

I believe that there are not many friends who go to the 4S shop to change the glass water, if you are unfortunately among the few people It should be noted that this is an extremely easy job.
