    Default Cabin Air Filter Size

    Need to replace the cabin air filter since I don't know when the previous owner changed it.
    VIDA has both sizes, 1" (Pollen Filter) and 1.5" (For vehicles with AQS (Air Quality System).

    According to FCPEuro, a car with:
    - "MAN" only, would require a 1" cabin air filter.
    - "MAN" & "AUT" would require a 1.5" cabin air filter.

    My 2005 XC90 only has the "MAN" but with a 1.5" filter.

    However, the one I removed from the car seems to be 1.5"

    What size should I have installed?
    Thanks

    The first picture is your recirculation button. "MAN" would be for a manually controlled HVAC system. "AUTO" for an automatic system where you set the temp you want and the system regulates the fan and vent positions.

    If you pulled out a 1.5 inch filter put a 1.5 inch filter back in.

    Hoping the previous owner used the right size since parts stores has two different sizes for that car.
    Yeah, I already put in a new 1.5" filter.
    Thanks
