How do I know if my electronic air filter is working?

If the neon light is turned on, the electronic air cleaner works. If the neon light is turned off, turn off the electronic air cleaner and only remove the cells (not the pre-filter), then close the access door and turn on the electronic air cleaner (the fan must always turn on).

How do I know if my pollen filter needs changing?

Another sign that might be the time to change the pollen filter is an odor of moulds in the cabin. This can also be caused by an accumulation of bacteria in the air-con system, and can be cured by rotating the speed and temperature of the fan up to a maxi of about 10 min, but it is a sign that the pollen filter must be replaced.

How do I know what kind of air filter to buy?
