Default Another Camry Question - Does a 1998 have a cabin air filter?

Hello again,

I quit smoking cigarettes over five years ago but every time I start
my 1998 Camry, I still get a blast of air that smells like stale
cigarettes - especially when the A/C is set to cycle the interior air.
I used to smoke in my car OFTEN.

I have removed all the ashtrays, cleaned the whole interior including
the carpets and upholstry. I even removed and cleaned the carpet in
the trunk but still I get that SMELLY STALE CIGARETTE air for a couple
of minutes when first started.

My question: does this year Camry have a Cabin Air Filter? I've had no
luck Googling it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Kaz aka Jack C.

I have a 2000 Camry LE and it does not have a cabin air filter. I had
inquired about the same thing to my local Toyota dealer for the same
issue. I had never smoked in the car, but the previous owner did quite
heavily. The only response from them was to have them clean the air
vents internally at a price. I just learned to live with it after
that...good luck!

Not aware that my 99 Camry CE has one--I would have discovered it by now.

No. Camry's cabin air filter didn't come into existence until the next
generation in 2002. However, I believe some Avalons had them earlier.

Yep, John is right. Camry does not have them until 2002. Some avalons
have then earlier. I don't know about corolla, i think 2003 or so.
Change them every 20-30,000 miles for the cabin filter.

I have a Camry 98 and it doesn't have a cabin filter. However, after messing
around with it and watching DIY videos i found some kind of filter. You could
see it if you remove either one of the centre "air vents" and look through.
Reaching it was kind of difficult since I had to remove the thing in front of
the driver, including the steering. It took me hours cause, well, it's the
first time I ever do that. Hope this helps.
