2012 Acura TLX Air Filter

There are two fundamental air filters in your 2012 Acura TLX. The engine air filter is located in the engine bay and is used to filter out destructive particles that may cause damage to your vehicle's engine. If the engine air filter is not replaced at the appropriate intervals, the build-up can affect the performance of your engine and lead to both a loss of power and loss in fuel efficiency.

The cabin air filter is located either under the dashboard, behind the glove compartment, or under the hood of your car. In most cases, it will be located behind the glove box. Just like engine air filters, cabin air filters in your 2012 Acura TLX are designed to clean the air as it moves through your heating, air conditioning, and ventilation system. The cabin air filter removes allergens such as pollen and dust. It will also trap pollutants such as smog & mold or distinct perilous fumes.
