I was looking through the 2000 Saab 9 5 owners manual today looking for info on all the recommended maintenance intervals, and I noticed something ive never heard of before. There is Cabin air filter intervals at every 30000 miles, and right under that is "Cabin Air Absorptive Filter." Not only have i never heard of this but there is no info on google or anywhere else ive looked. It says to change it out at 60000 miles. Does anyone have a clue what this is?

In the beginning there were two separate filters.
Now most suppliers offer combined activated coal filters.
Therefore no need to change two filters.

Yep. They were referring to activated charcoal filters, which were somewhat of a rarity back then. Common today.
The "great new thing" are ion charged filters, but you hardly see them in anything but S class Benz's, Maybach's, RR, and the like.. pain to get access to.. kinda like the 9-5.

You can't. The one's I've installed have sensors and connectors.. they're only in very very high priced cars.
