The cabin air filter on this vehicle should be located behind the glovebox.You will need to remove the glovebox to get to the access panel for the cabin air filter.Pull the cover off which usually consists of a few clips.Slide the filter out and you are ready to reinstall.
The cabin filter is located behind the glovebox.
First lower and remove the glovebox
If it has not been changed before, you will need to cut the plastic crossbrace behind the glovebox.
Once out of the way, unbolt the steel reinforcing frame behind the plastic and set it aside.
The cabin filter is mounted vertically behind it.
See images for further explanation:
Its directly behind your glovebox and seriously takes 3min to replace. Open your glove box, directly to the right you will see a sort of tab you can push that will let the glove box come further even more, itll let you bring the glove box down enough to see the cabin filter. From there its self explanatory. Do it yourself and save you the $50 the dealer would want
On the VW Jetta MkV, the cabin filter is underneath the glove box. Access is gained by removing two plastic screws, gently pulling down a piece of foam insulation, and releasing a single clip to detach the filter. It (and some debris from it) fall easily onto the floor mat below. Insert the new cabin filter, replace the insulation, re-screw the screws, and within 3 minutes, you're back in business with fresh air and clean hands besides!
Hiya...the cabin air filter is located below the front passenger/windshield area. It's only accessible by standing outside the Equinox with the hood open. Here's how to do it...(before you pop open the hood)
1) Stand outside at the front-right door area. 2) Just below the front windshield area, pull up a few small black plastic clips that's on the black windshield wiper cowl area- a small flat screwdriver or a special clip-remover tool is handy. 3) Raise the hood up. 4) There may be a triangular-shaped hard foam sound damper at the left side nearby the hood hinge...pull it off if it allow you to work around it with ease. 5) Continue to find a few black plastic clips around the black windshield wiper cowl area. 6) Gently pull up the black windshield wiper cowl cover with care not to bend it too hard during removal. 7) You should see the cabin air filter inside that's held in place by a black rectangular box inside. 8) There's 2 black tabs that holds the cabin air filter in place. 9) Insert your finger or tool to pry the cabin air filter away from the tabs. 10) Remove old cabin air filter.
Remember to reinstall the clip parts back into place when you're finished.
If you release the holders on the sides of the glovebox (when it is open) the glovebox will hang down, and you will see a removable black panel behind the glovebox...remove that panel, and the cabin filter will be behind it.
To change the cabin air filters (there are two, that are in same location), you first have to remove the glovebox. The glovebox itself will not come off. You have to get a phillips head screwdriver to remove the 5 screws. With the glovebox closed, locate the two screws underneath and remove, one on each side. Next open the glovebox, remove the two screws at the top. The fifth screw is on the right behind the plastic molding. Pull back on the top of the lower piece of molding until the bracket pops out. The piece of plastic located just above that piece needs to be pulled out. No need to take it out all the way, just enough to get to the screw. Once removed, with the glovebox open take the fuse panel cover to the right off to allow you better grip. Pull both sides evenly until glove box pops out.
Get a flashlight and shine it on the right side behind where the glovebox was. There is a small plastic cover about 1 inch tall by 5 inches long. It is clipped in place. Push up on the plastic clip with your thumb while pulling out and down with your other finger/fingers. Behind this is one filter. Remove it best you can. Be careful, mine had dead bee's/wasps/dust/dirt/pinestraw/etc. After removing the first, you will notice a second one to the right of that. Slide that one to the left and remove the same way as the first. Look at those filters when you remove and take note the direction of AIR FLOW ^marking. Before replacing with the new ones, vacuum out inside where the filters go as best you can to remove all that crud that fell off of the old filters when removed.
Reinstallation is the reverse of how you removed. I hope this helps all my fellow Pathfinders out there.
Regarding the door, you are prob going to need a body repair shop to do it properly.
The cabin ir filter is located behind the glovebox. Open the glovebox, remove all of your personal stuff. Disconnnect the shock absorber-looking thingy at the right side. Press IN on both sides of the glovebox "box", to defeat the 2 travel limiting pins on either side. The cabin air filter is located in a black or white rectangular looking door, pull it out and extract the filter.
