    Take care not to break the (might be) brittle clip holding the plastic HEPA cabin filter cover down.

How to install a cabin air filter in a 2001 Porsche Boxster S

Porsche offers option an option called the Active Carbon Filter (M571) for $458. However, you can purchase the same part at your dealer parts counter for under $70. The part number for the active carbon filter is 996.571.219.01. The active carbon filter reduces the air pollution by using charcoal in the filter.
To replace the existing filter with the new one you must open the front trunk, remove the battery cover. It is in the middle at the top and has two knobs that you turn to remove. Once it is off you remove the black plastic cover to the left of the battery. It requires that you remove a single Torx screw so you will need a Torx screwdriver. Once you remove the cover you will see the filter to the left rear. It is about 10X6 or so. Simply remove the old filter and replace it with the new one. Then reverse the process on the covers and you are done. It will take less than five minutes start to finish.

On a 05' tahoe the bottom of the glove box area is different than the earlier years (00'01'02') and would like to get a better answer to where the cabin air filters are. Please help.

The dashes are the same.
The cabin air filters do not exsist on a 2005 tahoe. Gm didn't put them in after the 2003 year model in the trucks and suv's.

How to Replace the AC filter on my Lexus 01 LX 470

Perform steps 1-3 first to inspect whether you have the access doors or not before ordering filters!!!

Did this little project this evening. Figured I'd write it up.

5 Easy steps:

1. Remove glove box door by removing both screws at the bottom of the door.

2. First pop the the little flap with a fuse/relay out of the black plastic shield in the upper portion of the glove box opening. Next push it back behind the shield through the opening. Next remove the 3 screws holding the shield in place. Don't pull this shield out yet!! Read step 3 first.

3. Gently pull the shield out. Be careful because the glove box light is still plugged into this part. It is located on the right side of the shield. Once it is pulled out slightly, unplug the bulb from the harness and now you can fully remove the part.

4. Now you can see the vertical cover where the air filters reside. The cover is about 5 inches tall and about 1 inch wide. It has 2 tabs on the upper portion of the cover. Squeeze these tabs towards each other and pull the cover off.

5. The filters are now exposed. They are stacked on top of each other. Pull the first filter out then lift the next filter up and pull out. Put new filters back in and reverse the procedure.

Parts needed:
2 Cabin air filters (Toyota PN 88568-60010 if you drop CDan a pm)
1 Phillips screw driver

Time needed:
No more than 15 minutes
