Question about 2004 Toyota Avalon
This may not be the best way, but it was the way a non-dealer mechanic changed the air filter In my 2000 Avalon XLS (purchased in Sept. of 1999):
remove 3 screws above the glove box, 1 bolt lower left of glove box, 1 bolt lower right of glove box. Pull left side of glove box in to free a protrusion of the glove box. Pop off surrounding dash at top left and top right of glove box. There was a black plastic attachment on the right side of the glove box that was the main problem. This attachment has a hinge between the glove box and the surrounding dash. The mechanic used a screw driver on the lower part of the hinge to pry it away from the right side of the dash; it is held in place by a plastic pin on the outer side of the dash. The hinge was slid back and away from the dash to free the hinge. The retaining pin was held in an open position in the hinge, so it was not lost. Once this hinge was freed, the glove box could be dropped and the cabin filter accessed.
I have to believe there is a simpler way to free the hinge, perhaps by removing a different part of the dash on the right side of the glove box.

Lower the glove box and its forward of that, should be a plastic panel to remove.

The cabin air filter is actually pretty easy to change. Here are the steps:

Its located behind the glove box. If you open the door, at the top there wil be stops, you can flex the stops to fully open the door and look toward the front, there is a panel approx 1.5"" by 10"" take that panel out and slide the filter out. No tools will be needed.
