I just purchased a 1992 525i (M50) and I was just wondering where the cabin filter is located? I'm not even sure if my car has one, but they say they make it.

You've got one. It's behind the glovebox. It can be a pain to get at but it's worth the trouble. You'll be surprised just how crapped up it will be. :)

Here's a detailed procedure for replacing the micro filter. It's for an e32, but the procedure is basically the same. It may be a bit frustrating while you're doing it, but once you access the filter, it will all make sense. Cheers.

Well, my baby is down for a new head gasket (waiting for the VANOS tools to arrive) so I'll jump in and replace my micro filter. I'm sure it has never been changed. :eek:

that is inspiring to clean my car that detailed, to check for stuff.
