    So I’m looking to replace the cabin air filter. Anyone know the difference between these two?
    One states deodorant filter and one is standard filter with small price difference between the two.
    Any help appreciated.1FEC48BA-CEF5-417C-946B-8011B0D09114.jpg

    Go to local auto parts store and buy the cheapest one, you can check it and change if needed in about 1 minute. If you want a nice smell in the truck, put a clip in smeller in the vent, or hang a Xmas tree on the rear seat hanger hook.

    It would probably work fine, but it seems like too much trouble. Your time and your money, but for me, no thanks. It's $6-7 once a year or so for the TYC filter.

    My truck came with the TRD engine air filter. It takes too much time and effort to clean and re-oil it (Not to mention the cost of the cleaner and oil), so I just use the disposable paper filter.

    One piece of advice. When you remove the old one, pay attention to which side is dirty, top or bottom. That will tell you which way the air flows and how to orient the new one. Some are stamped "This way up" and some are stamped to show the direction of airflow. I don't remember offhand which way the air flows on the Tacoma.
