The 2005 Toyota Corolla has a pollen filter, or cabin filter, that is connected to the ventilation system. The maintenance schedule for the Corolla calls for the replacement of the pollen filter annually or after 10,000 miles. If the Corolla is driven frequently on dirt roads or in heavy traffic, the filter will likely become dirty more frequently. Replacement pollen filters can be purchased at any auto parts store. The employees can look up the correct filter for your Corolla.
