Under the glove box.
Put the seat back all the way rearward (just to give you more room to move.
On the panel just directly below the glove box, there should be two Torx 25 screws. Remove those and pull that panel downward and rotate the right side back, that should release it from the kick panel on the left.
Now towards the back you should see the blower motor. Kind of an off white color and a black panel on the bottom of that.
It's held in with four gold colored Torx 25 screws. Remove those and the pollen filter should be in there.
If you have the thin pollen filter, you can get away with simply removing the two golden Torx 25 screws closest to you, carefully bend down the black plastic cover (carefully enough to squeeze the pollen filter past, I've seen people break them cause they do it too much).
If you have the thicker pollen filter, you have no choice but have to remove the four screws.

It takes less then 5 minutes to change this filter. Remove contents of glove box. Remove (pop out) the 2 roller guides (one on each side of glove box) with a flat blade screwdriver. Then pop out extension shock that controls (slows) movement of glove box. Glove Box will fall to floor and you will see the filter box. Press in each retaining clip one each side and it slides out like a house furnace filter. Pop in new one and reinstall 3 items you removed in reverse order and you are good to go. This is $90 at honda dealership but I did it for the price of filter around $18! This is much easier then 2005 pilot. About the same work as a 2004 accord.

To get to the cabin air filter on an XK8 or XKR, you have to do the following steps (I know these steps sound ridiculous...as in many cars there is just a simple cover in the engine compartment... but...): The air filter is under the black plastic cowl or plenum that is just under the windshield wiper blade connectors. To get to that, you must 1. carefully lift off the plastic covers that reveal screw heads. Remove the screws. 2. lift off the plastic covers that are on the top of each windshield wiper connector - under the cover you will then see a nut or bolt that has to be unscrewed. 3. Using a small puller (the puller that lifts off battery terminals works for this) lift off each windshield wiper and disconnect the rubber hose from each. 3. lift the car's front hood, and remove the plastic cowling (you also have to lift the side rubber runners and a rubber strap from each side that holds up the rubber drain hoses). Once you remove that plastic cowling, you will see the air filter plenum at the back of the engine area. The air filter should come vertically out of that. (This air filter does not exist on my 2000 and earlier editions...I am not sure what year Jaguar installed them.) Full instructions are on the Jaguar JTIS CD which you should obtain...look online for that.

It's under the dashboard. First you must dismount the accelerator pedal
(!), remove some dashboard plastic on driver side. The filter is
somewhere behind the central console.
I think it should be changed every two years. Look into the manual.
The company where you take the car for oil & filter change every year must change also this filter with no additional charges. Of course they charge you for the filter, which is not very exponsive.
