Where is the air filter on a 2008 Tacoma

It appears that the air filter box is located in the right wheel well. Do I have to remove the inner wheel well fender to get access to the air cleaner

    Thanks for the quick response Toyota Ed. This is my 3rd tacoma so I'm familiar with the engine layout. On my 2008 tacoma 4L V6 the air intake tube connects to a plastic cover on top of the engine then curves down behind the washer fluid container (where it gets larger ( almost cam shaped) then exits into the fender on the left side as you look at the engine. So I was guessing that the airbox was in the fender being used to the older square box shaped air cleaner box. I also thought is mmight be located in the larger cam shaped area on the air intake tube. But there is no way to open that. Looking at this photo it looks like maybe it's up closer to the plastic cover on the engine. I'll take another look when I get home.

    The air filter is located at "11 o'clock" in relation to the "V V T - I" decal. It is in a angular box, on the passenger side of that big black plastic cover. The filter is a panel-type filter.



    Let me know after you get home. Thnaks, glad to help.

    Right wheel well??? Are you sure?

    All Tacoma air filters are in the engine compartment...

    Please advise.

Where is iat sensor located on 2006 tpyota tacoma 4,ol ?


Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor and Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor are combined into a single assembly which is called Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor. This MAF sensor is located on the air filter box near air filter hose, and is connected with a five wire connector. You cannot replace the IAT sensor alone. Instead a MAF sensor is replaced altogether.

2008 honda pilot cabin air filter


This solution pertains to a 2008 Honda Pilot...To replace the cabin air filter which is located on the passenger side of the vehicle behind the glove box: Open glove box and remove stored items...while sitting in the passenger seat, pull towards you on each of the two clips on the left and right side of the glove box...this will cause them to become loose and the glove box will tip out completely exposing the inside of the dashboard. (Alternately...carefully pull towards you on the top center of the glove box which will cause the left and right side stops to pull away from the edges and allow the glove box to tip out) Here it gets tricky...the box holding the cartridge for the cabin air filter is the large black box on the left side behind the glove box The filter fits in a removable tray vertically inside that box. A pressure clip at the top of the box allows the vertical cover to be removed exposing the tray with the Cabin air filter... BUT!!! There is a plastic bar an inch or so high which has been placed there by the manufacturer to prevent most from changing the filter without the service department being involved. This bar must be cut with a sharp sheetrock knife or hacksaw and discarded, (it will not be reinstalled). Then there is a flat metal bar behind the plastic bar that can be removed using an 8mm socket and a phillips screwdriver. There are 2 8mm screws and one phillips head screw on each side that must be removed in order to remove the metal bar. THEN you can remove the cover to the cabin air filter box, pull out the tray with the filter (note how the filter is in the box so the new one can be placed the same way) reinsert the tray with the new filter and replace the tray cover. All other steps to finish the job are obvious as everything is the reverse. Actually the whole process is a lot of trouble and unless you are determined to change the filter I would recommend not doing it.

The engine air filter is located in the box behind the battery. This box should have 4 metal clips that pop off and you and pick up the top of the box and underneath is the filter.
