Open the glove box and there are push out tabs on the left and right side pop them out. Now watch it because you are about to dump the contents of your glove box on the floor. let the box hang freely from the lower hinge and look in the back. You will see a white panel that pulls out the panel has a tray attached with the filter element in it remove old element and replace with new 20ish bucks at the parts store lots more at the dealer. re-install filter tray and reverse your removal steps to re-install. Recommended approx 15k or annually

The two filters are located behind your glove compartment, you have to remove the glove box and you'll find them.

You cut the cross bar away with some diagonals and throw it away. It is just an assembly aid when they are putting the car together. Google "DIY MDX cabin air filter" and you will find step by step procedures with photos for changing the filter. It is not a difficult job.

SOURCE: How to I replace the cabin air filter in my 2008 MC C300

Remove the three torx screws using a torx-20 screwdriver...pull back the padding in the footwell...there is tab holding the left part of the plastic piece, use a flat-head screwdriver to pop it out...you may need to disconnect the light connector, and the cigarette lighter connection.. Once the plastic piece is out, you will see a large white box, the filter is inside this box. There are two yellow clips that need to be slided to the left/right. The box then pops out from below and the folded-filter will fall right out
Good luck..i hope this helps..please rate me a fixya.

How do you change the a/c filter that I was told is behind the glove compartment?


This filter is behind the glove compartment. The entire glove door/box structure has to come off. Once it is off, the filter mount should be visible.

The dealership charges about 200USD to 400USD for the job. It took me no more than an hour for my first attempt. Any subsequent attempts should be easier
Full instructions for an Acura RL can be found here (COPY AND PASTE LINK) and they are almost identical compared to my 2004 TL.

Need instructions on replacing a drive belt and a cabin filter for a 2006 Toyota Corolla S


The cabin air filter is located behind the glove box, you will have to remove the glove box, behind the glove box is a cover about 1" high and 7" long, remove that cover and you will see a tray that holds the cabin air filter, remove the tray and you can replace the paper cabin air filter, I recomend using a Toyota cabin air filter, the Toyota cabin air filter is a HEPA air filter and is available at any Toyota dealer for about $ 30

How do i change the cabin filter in my acura 2009 tl?


The advise by Techbuster was a bit off. The '09 is a bit different than the earlier models. To change the filter, pull the center divider in the glove box straight forward. The cabin filter housing in immediately behind it. Push the two clips on the outer edges inward and slide the tray out. Replace the filter, reinsert the tray, replace the center divider.
