Re: Changing Cabin Filter

Changed out mine today, pretty black, considering what goes in is pure white. Glad that new vehicles, (Not sure if all of them yet) have a cabin filter, it eliminates quite a bit of dust/pollen/dirt etc from the air. When your in an enclosed space with the windows shut its good to know we have a filter helping us out a little.

I changed the cabin filter today, it was actually pretty easy.

The filter is located behind the glove compartment

To get to the filter you will have to push in the 2 side tabs on the sides of the compartment. This will allow the box compartment to drop down, there are hinges at the bottom and a wire that will keep the whole thing from dropping.

Once you drop the compartment if you look up in the back you will see the filter behind a blank piece of plastic holding it on.
On the left side there is a tab that you push to remove retainer.

Once this is removed you reach in and pull out the filter, it's about 10x 10" and pretty flimsy.

If you install a new one just reverse process, when you go to push in the new filter due to it being so flimsy it will take a little finesse to get it back in. Try to push the front of it in first on the side and again use some finesse.

Pretty easy now that I have done it. Filter was getting pretty dark and had a little order to it so I was glad I figured it out.

Be aware of the filters they say work for a 2011 on Ebay, those look nothing like to filter I bought at the dealership. Must be for a 2010 maybe.
Just removed mine to check it and it was pretty dirty. Exactly one year a couple of days ago 9/20/2011, need to replcae it. You can get to it without dropping the glove compartment. How much was the filter at the dealer.

Re: Changing Cabin Filter

Is the original filter just plain paper or does it contain charcoal?
How about the replacements?
I see a difference in price and I wonder if the cheap is as good as the original.
