    My 1999 Acura TL has a moldy air smell in the cabin... especially noticeable on a warm day... where are the two acc cabin air filters located and how do I access them... thank you for your help

    A few weeks ago the car started to smell moldy when the heat was on. As days went by, the smell got worse, also more complex -- there were burning smells (like hot antifreeze, I wondered?) and a chemical smell. Since then I replaced the cabin air filter (1st suggestion of the dealership); now it's just a moldy smell. Worst when the car has just started up, and worse when the ac is on than when not. I've been running it at max temp, ac off, to try to dry it out. No idea what else to do but have scheduled another repair visit to see what the dealer can make of it.

The two filters are located behind your glove compartment, you have to remove the glove box and you'll find them.

What is the toyota number for the cabin air


The cabin air filter is actually pretty easy to change. Here are the steps:
  1. Set the air conditioning system to Recirculation. The case for the cabin air cannot be removed with the system in the Outside Air mode.
  2. Turn the engine off.
  3. Open the Glove Compartment
  4. unclip the damper rod on the ride side of the glove compartment. To unclip it usually it is just a squeeze tab but sometimes it is a phillips head screwdriver.
  5. The glove compartment now must be squeezed together at the rear to allow the tabs to be released. Just let the glove compartment hang down.
  6. Through the glove compartment opening, locate the filter cover and remove.
  7. Remove dirty filter and replace with the new and reverse steps 1-5 to put it back together.
Shouldnt take to long usually takes me about 5 minutes to change it.

As for the toyota cabin air number im not to sure on that but you can go to any parts store and pick up an aftermarket cabin air which will save you a bit of money, same quality..

How to replace cabin air filter in 2003 pilot


Step 1 Take everything out of the glove box on the passenger side. Squeeze the black clips on either side of the glove box interior to free it from its retainer and pull it toward you. It will glide forward on hinged arms. Lower it as much as possible so it's out of your way.
  • Step 2 Identify the gray plastic bar that runs from left to right across the bottom of the glove box opening. This is a piece of plastic molded to the rest of the glove box assembly, but it covers up a removable bar that is mounted directly in front of the cabin air filtermag-glass_10x10.gif case. You'll have to cut this plastic bar off with a razor knife to proceed. Fortunately, this isn't too difficult; just cut carefully and steadily, and make your cuts as close as possible to the ends of the bar.
  • Step 3 Remove the metal bar you uncovered in the previous step. It is screwed into the glove box assembly with Phillips head screws on either side.
  • Step 4 Open the cabin air filter case, which is the large plastic case on the left side off the glove box opening. The hatch will come all the way off when you open it.
  • Step 5 Take the old air filter out of the case and throw it away.
  • Step 6 Look at the arrows on the filter and the arrows on the filter case that indicate the direction of the air flow. Slide the new filter into place so that the arrows are both pointing the same way.
  • Step 7 Put the lid back on the air filter case and reinstall the metal bar you removed in Step 3.
  • Step 8 Push the glove box interior compartment back into place and listen for the snapping sound. Put the glove box contents back, close the lid and you're done.

    Need instructions on replacing a drive belt and a cabin filter for a 2006 Toyota Corolla S


    The cabin air filter is located behind the glove box, you will have to remove the glove box, behind the glove box is a cover about 1" high and 7" long, remove that cover and you will see a tray that holds the cabin air filter, remove the tray and you can replace the paper cabin air filter, I recomend using a Toyota cabin air filter, the Toyota cabin air filter is a HEPA air filter and is available at any Toyota dealer for about $ 30

    How do i change the cabin filter in my acura 2009 tl?


    The advise by Techbuster was a bit off. The '09 is a bit different than the earlier models. To change the filter, pull the center divider in the glove box straight forward. The cabin filter housing in immediately behind it. Push the two clips on the outer edges inward and slide the tray out. Replace the filter, reinsert the tray, replace the center divider.
