If you removed all 6 screws. there are 2 on bottom. 2 on top and 2 in front on the side. pop out the light and release the electrical connector. then grab a hold of the glove box door from each side and pull hard. it will feel like your going to break it but it won't. you really have to pull on it kinda hard. right when your ready to stop cuz you think it will break just pull a little harder. you will be shocked when you see how much force is needed to get the glove box out.

Need to Clean the Air-Condition Filter in Suzuki Alto 2006


Changing the cabin air filter is fairly easy to do if you follow this how-to guide. New vehicles usually come equipped with one or more cabin air filters. A cabin air filter provides fresh air through the passenger compartment side vents. Step-By-Step Guide
  1. The first thing you need to do is locate your owner's manual to find out if your vehicle is equipped with a cabin air filter. If you can't find the information, then your car is probably not equipped with a cabin air filter. However, if you would like to be sure, call your favorite parts store and they can provide you with the information.
  2. When you purchase the new cabin air filter, be aware that there are 2 types of filters. One is called the particulate; the other is called the activated charcoal. The particulate filters out road dust, bacteria, mold spores, pollen and other pollutants. The activated charcoal filters the above mentioned and filters harmful gasses and odors. People who drive around in gridlock or have an odor problem might consider buying the activated charcoal, though it is more expensive.
  3. After purchasing the filter, make sure you have your eye protection, gloves, ratchet, socket and screwdriver before beginning the procedure.
  4. Remove the glove compartment. Usually, vehicles are equipped with bolts and screws to hold the glove compartment in. Your glove compartment may have tabs as well, so be careful when removing the compartment and use the tabs to remove.
  5. After removing the bolt and the screws, remove the glove box frame.
  6. Locate the filter housing. Look for a removable plastic filter cover.
  7. Remove the filter. Most under-dash filters can be removed simply by opening the filter door.
  8. Before installing the new filter, vacuum the filter chamber to remove any excess particles. You may also take a damp cloth and wipe the inside of the air filter chamber to clean out unwanted dust and particles.

Dealer claims cause of malfunctioning indicator light is a $400.00 charcoal filter if this is the case where on the vehicle would I find the filter.Any help would be appreciated.


This would be your cabin air filter (charcoal is not required, you can go to Wal-Mart and purchase a FRAM equivelant and it will not void your warranty [as per law]). Most CAFs are located either behind the glove compartment (you may have to remove the compartment), or on the passenger side of the firewall or on the vent panel above, under the hood.

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.

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.

WHERE IS THE AIR FILTER LOCATED


The intake air filter is located under the hood on the right side ( a black tube leading to a black box which the filter is in). the cabin air filter is behind the glove compartment, just unscrew the one screw on the right of the glove compartment which holds the linkage and remove the two black tabs on each side of the inside of the glove compartment, to do this simply turn and pull each tab ( a little plier may be useful because they may be kinda tight). the glove compartment should now fall freely. behind it is a white tray which holds the air filter, simply pull it out and clean it or replace it, HINT...the funky smell that comes out of your air vents is usually caused by a dirty cabin air filter
