How to Change an Air Conditioning Filter on a 08 Toyota Tacoma
The 2008 Toyota Tacoma is equipped with an air-conditioning system filter that keeps dust and allergens out of the passenger compartment. Toyota recommends replacing the filter once every 10,000 miles or every 12 months. Some driving conditions will cause the filter to become dirty more quickly, including heavy traffic driving and frequent driving on dirt roads. A clean air-conditioning system filter will improve air flow in the heating and air-conditioning system and will help increase the circulation of clean air in the passenger cabin.
