I have been told twice now that mythe air filters for the engine and my cabin air filter are really dirty and need to be replaced. They're roughly $40 each and it seems totally unnecessary to completely replace them.

Can they just be rinsed out with water and dried or does this somehow ruin the functionality? Why would you HAVE to replace them?
