When the cabin filter is blocked, it prevents airflow in the car and it can also lead to unpleasant smells developing in the vehicle. You and your passengers will be exposed to dirt and bacteria that is being passed through the filter and in some cases; this can heal to allergic reactions or people feeling unwell.
