Cooled seats..Filter..Anyone changed yet?

I understand there is a filter on the cooler of the cooled seats. How often and when should you change it? I also assume there is one for each seat.

Also, I do feel the seats getting cooler a little towards the back<shirt area> not just the seat <pants>....How far up does it go? Or at all?

thanks,
Shane

I was wondering the same on the filters. I was thinking about pulling one out and seeing if they can be cleaned (foam) or are they paper and need to be replaced.

Looks like it needs to be checked and/or changed every 15,000 miles.

I would believe that the filters would need to be changed when the air flow diminishes somewhat.

Don't feel bad, I read the manual and don't remember anything about the seat filters. Do in-cabin filters really need to be changed? I have never done it on any of my vehicles and never a noticed a difference.

If you got the cooled seats, you got them (I think the cabin filter and seat filters may be the same). I took a look under my seat and found this. Based on where it is (center rear of the seat bottom), it will collect dust. Mine looks clean:
