The filter is probably behind a small door/panel in the back of the glove box.

Air conditioning filter


Here's a really wild guess.
My daughter has a '06 Murano and the air filter, called the "cabin filter" is behind the glove box!
I'm supposing you have no owner's manual to look it up, right?
I have changed hers twice already.
You remove the glove box cardboard liner very carefully and you will see a door that can opened that has the filter behind it.
Seems like Nissan wanted 30 or 40 dollars, and I got one from e-bay for 6.
Be blessed.

Changing cab filter in 200 ford f150


If you are talking about the cabin air filter, this filters the outside air for the HVAC.
Hastings Filter (#AF1057) shows one for the 97-03 MY trucks.

Remove the screws that hold the horizontal filter housing cover from behind the glove box (no need to open the glove box);

Pull the cabin filter straight down (sits vertical behind the glove box inside the housing).

Install replacement and reattach the cover.

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..

Just squeeze the glove box inside up the top where the stoppers touch dash, the box will flip right down remove the cover behind and fit your new filter.

Falcon EL - plastic bag sucked in thru air vent from inside car, now rattling behind glovebox somewhere, can't see it. What can I undo to get it out? Would really appreciate your help. Col


there is an air filter under the glove box and sometimes it's even behind. this one filters the air inside your car, the bag probably got caught in the filter or somewhere around there. check in your glove box and underneath it, come cars actually put the filter in the passenger side under the weather seal outside the car where your wiper motor goes

2003 Ford Fairmont Fan noise


in above the clove box there is a removeable filter, that collects leaves and dirt, it is awkward to get to, but my father had the same problem, and a small piece of paper had got stuck between the filter and the fan. removed the glove box, and pulled out the slide in filter, cleaned it and the fan and no more noise.

the glove box was a bugger to get back in properly with the air strut.
hope this helps

Difference between an Air Filter and Air Conditioning filter


The air conditioning filter that your manual speaks of is known as a ''cabin filter'', it is much differant then your engine air filter. It filters the incoming air into your vehicles interior. So if someone has told you to replace your ''air filter'' they are more then likely speaking of your ''engine'' air fitler. You should check your engine air filter every oil change. If it shows signs of dirt, then replace it. Hope this helps =)

Air conditioning system musty smell when used


There should be a cabin filter. Call the parts store to see if they stock one for your car in particular.

Cabin filters are located in stream of the outside air flowing in. I know on a '99 Galant, you just had to take out the glove box, loosen two screws, and out she slid.

It'll be right near the blower motor, above the passenger's foot rest, behind the glove box. Simple hand tools will do it.

Be careful when pulling it out, as it may have leaves and acorns or fur all over it. Simply slide in the new filter and you're done.

You'll be surprised at how much better it'll smell, and how much harder your A/C and heat will blow without the constriction of a dirty filter.

Most cars have the cabin filters behind the glove box, but if not there, then they'll have them under the hood, on the firewall, on the passenger side. Usually inside a small black plastic box.

If your car DOESN"T have a cabin filter, then the musty smell is stuff that is sitting in the heat/ AC system. You can try spraying pine sol or Febreeze down the air intake hole for the system. Mind you, this is not the same as the air intake for your cars engine!

The air intake for the cabin filter will be on the passenger side, under the hood, most likely under a plastic cowling of sorts.

Good luck!
