It is underneath the black plastic pieces under/below the wipers. There are just a few round fasteners that hold down the passenger side piece that need to be removed to access the filter.
You have to remove the windshield wiper arms, then take off the plastic molding that lies between your windshield. Once that is off (it comes out in two pieces) on the passenger side of the car, under the windshield just behind the firewall there is a plastic rain shield with two screws. Remove the rain shield. The cabin filter is under that rain shield. FYI...every bolt is metric, and be careful when removing the plastic molding-only turn those screws a half turn, they break very easily!

Is a cabin filter same as air filter on1997 mercury sable

The cabin filter is not the same filter as the air filter. The cabin filter is for the heating and air conditioner inside the car. The air filter is for the engine.

How to replace ac filter in 1996 acura tl

Your receiver dryer is replaced when the freon is removed. This requires a shop to evacuate the system - risk of death disclaimer in the manual. If your hoses are off or you have replaced the compressor you could replace it now. If you are talking about the cabin filter it should be between the heater core/evaporator and the air intake at the cowl where the wipers are. My wife's mercury sable's cabin filter was accessed from the engine compartment with a few clips and screws. It was explained well in the glove box book.

Cabin air filter replacement for Mercury Sable 2005

Open the hood and look at the right (passenger) side of the cowl between the wipers and the firewall. My 2000 was easy to slide the black plastic out (after removing the clips) and slipping in the filter.

Where is the cabin air filter located in 1997 sable

The filter is in the engine compartment under the passenger cowl grille by the windshield. Instructions should be in the owners manual. However, you can also follow these steps:
1- Open the hood. The filter section is on the passenger side.
2- I removed 3 push-on- clamps to open the grille. Clean out debris.
3- Unsnapped a part that held the filter down and then remove and relpace the filter.
Let me know if this helps and please rate my response for me. Thank you
