Hi, i took out the air filter to see if it should be replaced and after re-installing the same air filter back, i hear a drumming type of sound from the air filter casing when driving. specifically, the drumming sound comes when i stop giving the engine gas. any advise on what it may be and how to fix. thanks.

This is one of those topics that I have seen both ways.
1. The 2004 was the only MY to include an airfilter. 2. The late build 2004 to 2008 could have a dealer installed cabin air filter kit installed.
So don't be shocked if you go fishing for it, and it is not there. On to the directions :
Open the passenger-side glove compartment box. Remove all of the items currently stored in the glove box
Notice two screws on the inside ceiling of the glove box securing the glove box to the dashboard. Use a flat-head screwdriver to remove these screws. The glove box will now be loose. Wiggle the box off the dashboard and allow it to hang.
Locate the rectangular plastic housing; this is where the cabin air filter is stored. Remove the housing cover by pulling it out of place. Remove the dirty cabin air filter by sliding it out of the clips securing it in place. Discard the dirty filter.
Slide the replacement cabin air filter into the retainer clips. Push the filter housing cover back into place until you hear it lock. Place the glove compartment back into place. Replace the two screws that secure the glove box in place and tighten with the screwdriver. Place the items back into the glove box and close the box.
Toyota doesn't publish instructions for that. Its checked and installed for free as a courtesy on an oil and filter replacement, at good repair shops. You took it apart, I'm sure you can figure it out. People that aren't auto mechanics, think everything's so simple.
Does your car have an in cabin air filter? If so it may be clogged. Check your owners manual for the cabin filter's location. Follow the instructions for removal. Blow clean with compressed air or replace. return to installed position with the correct side facing up.
