    Tire Pressure - Vitz KSP130

    Convert then into PSI( pounds per square inch)values using an online converter..but I usually use 30psi for all for tires for smooth driving(subjective figure). For front tires,due to engine weight company recommend a bit higer pressure than rear wheels..

    Question Regarding replacing Cabin AC filter

    Gentlemen,Answers to the questions you have posed are as follows: 1.yes its a 2017 model.mileage is about 15,000km 2.i scrutinized the cabin filter once it was taken out at service centre.it has torn out frankly & multiple tears were visible to naked eye 3.Whenever there was fogging of the windshield,most of the time i used to take out side air & set it hit at windshield to defog quickly.i think it may be the reason why the original filter got this plight at 15,00km. 4.please recommend me a place to buy a VIC or denso filter which is compatible for vitz 2017 5.Currently i replaced with following one.looks like a fake one despite it mentions genuine Toyota spare parts as its price was 1900/= P.S really appreciate all your prompt support/expertise given to a novice like me.thank you
