I recently changed my microfilter. I bought mine from the $tealer, and just found out Canadian Tire has the exact same one for less, for e36 application $25 versus $38 from BMW. They are BOTH manufactured by a company called Micron Air, I checked the tab on the one I bought from BMW and then I recently saw a poster at the CDN Tire parts counter. Just a heads up ! *th-up*

3 yrs ? doh ! I've been changing it every oil change. j/k :moon:


It was pretty easy. Removed the Glove box, kick panel, passenger vent, electrical distribution bracket, twist knob counter clockwise, and pull old filter out.

I didn't see the one from Canadian Tire, but like I mentioned Micron Air was stamped on the OEM one. The only difference I could think of is the packaging.

ok, so is there a write up on changing this? what is a microfilter and whats it do?

WASABI 12-03-2004 11:20 AM

It filters the air going into the cabin (for the Heater/AC system).
