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.

SOURCE: how to replace the cabin air filter in a 2000

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.

SOURCE: How do I change the cabin air filter on my 2002

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.

Replace cabin filter


The cabin filter is located behind the glove box. Open the glove box and disconnect the retaining rod on the right side, then squeeze the sides of the glove box in order to make it drop down. Behind it you will see the filter cover, just undo the clips holding it in. You will see the filter once the cover is off. Reverse for installation.
