AC Air Filter Change

It’s purpose is to filter out any particles from entering your cars interior when you turn on the fan.

Tools: Phillips Screw Driver (Stubby)
Parts: AC Filter (Cabin Air Filter) $15-$30
Time: 5 min


Get in the front passengers seat and open the glove box. There is a screw on the right side of the glove box near the bottom. Take the screw out with the phillips screw driver, you’ll need the door open (don’t loose the screw).

With the screw taken out slip the holder (<-lack of better term) off the peg. Open the glove box as wide as it will go. Lift up on the glove box (I jiggled mine while lifting) it should pop out its hinges on the bottom.

Now that you’ve taken the glove box out you will see this

The AC Air Filter is housed where the black rectangular box with the clips on the left and right. Push the right and left clips in and remove the cover plate.

Remove it and replace it if it’s dirty.

I don’t think it’s ever been replaced . Because of the bad lighting I put some clean napkins to give a better idea. When I put the new filter in there was noticable difference in power and flow from the vents than from the old dirty one.

Reverse the instructions to put it back together. The new filter will have an arrow point up for reference (or atleast it should).
