    2009 Routan, open the glove compartment door. You should then push inward on both sides of the glove compartment, then lower the glove compartment door.

It's either under the hood, extreme back left where the glove box is or it's under a small cover on the underside of the dash.

SOURCE: How to change the HEPA cabin filter in a 2006 Honda Civic

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

How to change cabin filter


Not all cars have a cabin filter, but most are located behind your glove compartment. Open glove box and remove the two pins on the sides so the compartment opens wider and you should see a black plastic door with a clip to keep on. Unclip and pull it out and replace. Some cars the cabin is located under the hood on passenger side by the wiper. You have to remove the black plastic by a screw driver or socket and youll see the filter housing under it if its there

Heater/defrost does not change position. windows fog, fan motor running as should just will not let air into cabin.


get the cabin air filter of ur endeavor changed by following method.
Procedure to Remove the Old Cabin Filter First off, you need to open the glove compartment; you'll see two screws on top of the glove compartment and two at the bottom of it.

Remove each one of them one by one with the help of a Phillips screwdriver, and then unhook the stop bar which you can find on the right side of the glove compartment .

Next, pull the glove compartment out - while pulling the glove compartment out we disconnect the light wire .

Now, you should be able to see two tabs on both sides of the cabin filter which we press towards the middle of the compartment and then we remove the cabin filter cover . After this, slide the filter out of the housing .

Putting the New Filter In Place Now, you can easily insert the new filter in the filter housing making sure the "up" arrow printed on the filter points towards the roof of the Endeavor and then we replace the cabin filter cover.

Next, insert the glove compartment back into the dash and while it is half way through you need to reconnect the light wire.

Finally, reconnect the stop bar over the hook and finally replace the four screws to hold the glove compartment firmly in place. And, that's it - you've just learned how to change cabin filter in Mitsubishi Endeavor.

What is the toyota number for the cabin air


The cabin air filter is actually pretty easy to change. Here are the steps:
  1. Set the air conditioning system to Recirculation. The case for the cabin air cannot be removed with the system in the Outside Air mode.
  2. Turn the engine off.
  3. Open the Glove Compartment
  4. unclip the damper rod on the ride side of the glove compartment. To unclip it usually it is just a squeeze tab but sometimes it is a phillips head screwdriver.
  5. The glove compartment now must be squeezed together at the rear to allow the tabs to be released. Just let the glove compartment hang down.
  6. Through the glove compartment opening, locate the filter cover and remove.
  7. Remove dirty filter and replace with the new and reverse steps 1-5 to put it back together.
Shouldnt take to long usually takes me about 5 minutes to change it.

As for the toyota cabin air number im not to sure on that but you can go to any parts store and pick up an aftermarket cabin air which will save you a bit of money, same quality..

Where is the cabin air filter located at and how do i get to it.


It will either be behind your glove box, or will be located under your hood by the firewall.

    Behind the Glove Compartment
  1. Open the glove compartment and remove all the items from inside of it.
  2. Remove the glove compartment assembly retainer screws with a Phillips head screwdriver. Refer to the repair manual for your specific year and model series BMW for the exact location of the screws or carefully look around the perimeter of the interior glove box assembly to locate the screws.
  3. Locate the lower trim panel retaining screws behind the glove box assembly. Remove the screws with a Phillips head screwdriver and then remove the panel.
  4. Remove the foot-well air duct.
  5. Loosen the retaining screws of the control module box to all you to lower it down.
  6. Turn the cabin air filter panel retaining knob counterclockwise to open the panel. Pull the filter removal tab outward to remove the filter.
  7. Use a shop vac to clean out any noticeable debris from the cabin air filter housing interior.
  8. Insert the new filter and reverse the order to reassemble the foot-well air duct, the trim panel and the glove compartment assembly.
  9. Under the Hood
  10. Open the hood and locate the cabin air filter housing. The housing is located near the cowling on the top section of the firewall. Some models place the housing in the middle of the cowling, on both sides--left and right--of the cowling or on the passenger side cowling. Removal of the cowling and placing the windshield wipers in the upward position may also be required on certain models. Some 7-Series BMWs place the filter housings on both the left and right side undercarriage of the hood.
  11. Release the cabin air filter duct clamp. This can either be released by unclipping the air filter duct by pressing a retaining lock with your fingers or using a flathead screwdriver to pry off a retaining rod.
  12. Lift the cover upward--or downward on hood-installed 7-Series BMWs--to reveal the cabin air filter.
  13. Remove the cabin air filter from the air duct. Vacuum the air duct with a shop vac.
  14. Insert the new cabin air filter(s) and reassemble.

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.
