Thanks for your answer, but I was asking about the cabin air filter not the engin air intake filter


The cabin air filter is usually located behind the glove box or at the base of the windshield in the cowl area over the HVAC inlet duct. The exact location can be found in the vehicle owner’s manual or a filter reference guide at the auto part store where you purchase the cabin air filter from.
On most Fords, the filter is located under the hood in the cowl area. On Chrysler models, it is located under the dash. On GM products, it might be under the hood (Impala, Lumina and Monte Carlo), under the dash (Avalanche, Silverado, Suburban and Tahoe) or behind the glove box (Venture). On Toyota, Lexus, Nissan and most Honda models, you’ll find the filter behind the glove box. There is no cabin air filter even listed for a 1998 Oldsmobile Regency.

On vehicles where the cabin air filter is mounted under the cowl at the base of the windshield, some disassembly may be required to replace the filter. This may involve removing a plastic cowl cover. The area around the filter usually collects debris, so this area should be cleaned to remove any leaves, bugs or other debris before the old filter is pulled out. This will prevent any contaminants from falling into the HVAC inlet duct.

On vehicles where the filter is located behind the glove box, the glove box may have to be removed to replace the filter. On others, the filter can be accessed from under the dash and pulled out of a slot in the HVAC unit.

Most cabin air filters are flat-panel filters, but some have unusual shapes, so they will fit the HVAC inlet duct. Some filters also come in two sections to make replacement easier.

Directions on replacing a cabin air filter for a 2004 Avalon


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.

How do you replace the cabin air filter on the 2001 C70 Convertible?


  • Refer to your owner’s manual for the specific location of your cabin air filter. Some are found in the engine compartment and others are located in the interior of your car, under the dash. Note that some models may have more than one cabin air filter, so be sure to check both and replace them when needed. We suggest replacing them in pairs to eliminate the hassle of future occurrences.
  • Loosen the box and inspect the cabin air filter for debris, dirt, leaves and other objects that are obstructing the path of air entering the cabin.
  • Remove your old filter, clean the filter box and install a new filter. Secure the box.
  • Run the A/C systems with the doors closed to verify the repairs.

Tranny Filter


A lot of auto parts come in the form of a filter which is designed to remove impurities and foreign objects from a stream of gas or liquid. A typical car employs an oil filter, a transmission filter, a fuel filter, and an air filter. However, there is yet another type of filter which is least common to car owners. The cabin air filter, also referred to as the passenger compartment filter, the pollen filter, the dust filter, or the interior ventilation filter is inherent in vehicles manufactured in the 80�s. More and more vehicles are now equipped with cabin air filters, but what exactly is a cabin air filter? The cabin air filter is tasked to eliminate almost all of the airborne elements that come with the air that enters the passenger compartment. It is guaranteed to enhance the quality of the air that goes around the passenger�s area. The cabin air filter is attached under the dashboard, behind the glove compartment or in the engine chamber. Your factory cabin air filter may be worn and torn with use and time, which is why an aftermarket Chevymag-glass_10x10.gif cabin air filter replacement is manufactured. The Chevy cabin air filter replacement is designed to ideally replace your factory cabin air filter which is created to top the performance of your old one. The Chevy cabin air filter replacement is ideal to use because it helps purify the air and remove particles that might cause the passengers allergic reactions. It is highly beneficial not only to the car occupants, but also of the car driver so that he will not get distracted from controlling the maneuvers of the vehicle operation.

SERVICE ENGINE SOON LIGHTCAME ON. iT HAS 76000


The computer probably needs to be reset. there is a procedure for it somewhere but the quick easy way is to just disconnect the battery for a few minutes, This usually resets the computer and solves intermittant issues. Also, the air conditioning may be as simple as replacing the cabin air filter. My 2000 Lincontinental had the same issue only it would blow hot air. A local ripoff mechanic charged me 250.00 to look at the a/c after he cut a line into and had to replace it at my cost. he said I needed a new system for $1700.00. I walked away without using his "service" Later I checked the air cabin filter and found it was completely clogged. I replaced it for $30.00 and the air started blowing cold immediately. The cabin air filter is located under the hood. The plastic trim that is under the windshielf wipers has air channels in it. On the left side is where the cabin air filter is located. The best way to do it is to get someone else to change it at one of these quick lube places.
