Does a 1993 Toyota Celica have a cabin air filter?

Asked by Nov 20, 2013 at 05:16 PM about the 1993 Toyota Celica GT Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Does the Celica (1993) have a cabin air filter? If not, how does that work? I keep getting sick everytime I run the heat, not necessarily the AC. But I am thinking maybe I am breathing in mold? The car was flooded at one time. about 3-6 inches above the floor, not entirely.

Unless someone put one in it, a cabin filter is not stock on this year of Toyota. As both the heat and A/C air routed through the same passages I doubt you are getting it from the heater assembly but it could be kicking up mold spores off of the flooring and from under the seats, the only way I know of to kill the mold is to strip out the interior, have the carpets and padding material thoroughly cleaned and then sprayed with Lysol or an equivalent, then do the same with the seats, don't forget the rear also. If you are still worried about the heater then you can also turn on the heater blower on high and set the fresh air door to recirc and spray Lysol or equivalent into the recirc intake until you see it come out of the vents or heater ducts, then just shut it off and let it sit overnight, next day fire it up and let the heater warm up with the doors open to air out the Lysol, it may take a few days for the Lysol smell to dissipate but it will. You may have to do your door panels and interiors too if the water was that high.
