How to Change the Carbon Filter on a Peugeot 407
Driving in heavy traffic shortens the life of the filter. (major traffic jam 2 image by Aaron Kohr from Fotolia.com)

The Peugeot 407 is equipped with a carbon pollen filter that traps dust and small particles to prevent them from entering the passenger compartment. When the filter becomes dirty, the air flow in the ventilation system is restricted. Peugeot recommends replacing the carbon filter once per year or after every 15,000 miles driven. If the 407 is driven in heavy traffic or in dusty conditions, the filter will need to be replaced more frequently.
