Hi, I’m Mike from 1A Auto. We’ve been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

Cabin filter is located behind the glove box. You just open it up. There's a little strut here. It keeps the glove box from dropping too far and too fast. You're going to push in and pop it off, just like that. Then you take the two sides of the glove box and just push them in gently. It will fold down.

You may want to take whatever is in your glove box out because it's going to fall right down. There's a panel right here with a couple arrows and some tabs. Cabin filter is located in here. Now push in these locks, and pull it straight out. This one is pretty dirty. It’s full of all the stuff it catches, so it doesn't go into your blower motor.

Here's our original cabin air filter with the tray from our vehicle. Here's the brand new replacement filter from It's an exact match. It will fit perfectly. It's marked with the direction of flow just like the front of this is marked with the direction of flow. Simply lift this out of the tray, and throw it away.

This shows the direction of flow. I want to put it in the same direction with the pleats. There's little tabs here on the edges. Slide it in just like that. This will fit in our vehicle perfectly. Keep our blower motor from getting filled with outside debris.

Reinstall it. We'll slide the tray right back into the heater box. It clicks, and it locks into place.

Push the glove box back up. Then attach this little strut part. You may have to push the glove box up just a little more. Glove box might even lock into place. We'll push this forward.

This has the little strut, so when you open it, it doesn't slam down. Replace all your stuff in your glove box. The cabin filter is changed.
