Re: cabin filter needs to be replaced
1999 Rav/4 does not have a cabin air filter.
My suggestion would be to remove the heater fan blower motor, under the glove box. 3 screws.
Look for debris in the fan motor "squirrel cage"...sometimes, the fan can **** small, loose papers out of you glove box

Check drain and unclog if required. Remove air cabin filter (see you tube for instructions). Make sure it is done in a clean place so no dust or dirt gets in while you do this. Block Air Cabin filter opening with duct tape. Set fan to 50% (3/4), temperature to minimum AC must be OFF Open hood and using a Spray bottle, spray half a bottle of Alcohol 70% into the air intake vents at bottom of windshield Turn off fan Let it sit for 30 to 60 min Set temperature to max and fan to max Open hood and using a Spray bottle, spray the second half (250ml) of a bottle of Alcohol 70% into the air intake vents at bottom of windshield. Turn heater and fan OFF Take off duct tape and replace the air cabin filter (new one is better) If you don't take off the air cabin filter, a lot of the alcohol or disinfenctant (like Lysol) may be stuck in the filter causing an irritating smell. Replace Air cabin filter if possible.
Not sure if Hyundai cars have them but most cars have a cabin filter to filter air coming from the fan to the vents. Check your owners manual and it should tell you if you have one and where it is located. Most are located under or behind the glove box. You'll need to remove the filter and clean or replace.
You will need to slide the center hump on dash directly above radio and vents backwards towards the widshield. You will notice a crease where the actual part containing vents meets the center hump that is just one piece itself. It should open up giving you access to the right side (passenger side) dash panel that has 5 or 6 screws (they are hex) that need to be removed. You will find the Cabin air filter under this panel after removing screws. it pulls out easily and the new one just sits back in place. Replace the screws and then align and slide the center hump back towards the back of car to lock into place. Relatively easy thing to do..

Cabin Air Filter Installation Annoyed with all the pollen and dust in your interior? Unless you special ordered it, Ford left out the cabin air filter.
Here's how to install one in your Focus.Compliments of myFordFocus.com Forum Member:CinnabonBoyCost: $10.00
Time to Complete: 10 minutes
Stop the windshield wipers when they are in the up position. Since the filter will be placed on the passenger side, this will make it easier to access the panel.
In the center of the windshield, there is a small plastic circle piece. Pry it off with the flathead screwdriver, and set it aside in a safe place. Remove the screw you have uncovered. (See picture) This will make it easier to remove the panel you are about to remove.
There are 3 plastic locking clips holding the cover down. Use your flathead screwdriver to GENTLY pry them up. Once they are up, give the whole piece a little tug up and to the left. You will see the slot where the filter goes.
BE CAREFUL!!!! Everything is made of plastic, and everything can break. Take your time, and don't get frustrated.
In this slot, there is an eggcrate style plastic piece retaining the space where your filter is about to be placed. Pull up and out on it to remove it. You will not need this piece, so you can discard it, or keep it in a safe place.
Remove your filter from the box.
Note: which side is to be placed "up".
Slide the filter into the casing, ensuring a snug fit.
Replace everything you removed by reversing the steps above.
Go in the car, and blast the vent, to remove any dust, etc. that may have been in the vents.
Enjoy your clean air! You will notice that your interior will stay cleaner for longer periods of time, and you can breathe easier!!
