    I replaced my cabin air filter today and the OEM one shows which direction to put it in but the Purolator just has a arrow showing air flow direction. Is the air flow from the floor up?

    I think I figured it out. Dirt was in the top of the filter so air flow must be from the top down. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Yep. And keep in mind, that filter isn't necessarily for the air you breathe- it filters the return into the evaporator (cooling) coil of your A/C system, keeping it clean and efficient. I recommend checking this every maintenance.
