Dont have this model listed as iam in europe but i should imagine its the same as the avensis which is lower glovebox ,it has two hinges and you slip them out then their are two variants one comes out the top and the other out the side ,all toyota models are showing the same thing except their right hand drive in my book so look on passenger side and lower glovebox flap and ond one is behind and another model is on one side .

There is a hidden bolt that requires removal of the passenger side entry scuff plate and lower left kick panel. First thing you need to do is remove the glove box. There is a row of screws along the upper edge (visible when the glove box door is open) and a row along the bottom visible when the black plastic blower cover is removed (it will pop right out) The screw in the bottom right corner is covered by the kick panel on the right side of the passenger foot well. To remove it, first pop off the scuff plate on the bottom edge of the door jamb and then remove the large plastic nut on the back side of the kick panel (you can twist it right off by hand) After you get that kick panel off, remove that last screw and give the glove box a firm tug to un clip it. Be careful not to pull to hard as there is a light switch and an airbag wire connected to the back of the glove box assembly. Once you have it loose you'll see the cabin filter door.

The cabin filter is behind the glove compartment.

You will see three phillips head screws across the top and one on lower left, remove these, now on the lower right back in an indent you will see a 10mm bolt head, remove this bolt. There are several metal push-clips holding the glove box in place after the four screws and bolt are removed. Pull firmly from the top and rotate the bottom right flange out from behind the molding where the bolt was removed. There is a plastic foot shield that snaps to the bottom edge of the glove box. Pull it off the box. Gently pull glove box out and let hang down. If you want you can unplug the wire to the trunk opener cancelling switch by pushing the little tab while pulling out. You can now maneuver the filter holder out of its tray that is above where the glove box was. Grasp filter holder from both sides with fore fingers and pull it straight out. Remove filter from holder and install new filter the same way. Reinstall filter holder, Gently put glove box back in place, reinsert screws and bolt. Enjoy the fresh air.

SOURCE: cabin Air Filter
Open the glove box
Remove all of the contents in the glove box
On the right side, dis-engage the rod going to the split plastic pin on the glove box door
Squeeze both other sides of the glove box to defeat the stops that keeps the glove box from falling open
Observe the box in the area vacated by letting the glove box drop down, this is the heater box
Locate a rectangular cover (approx 7 " x 2"), it is located on the face of the box; facing you.
Pull this cover out towards you, the cabin air filter is located in the tray that is connected to this rectangular cover.
This should help you replace it.

I will be happy to provide you with the instructions.
Open the glove box.
Remove all of the contents.
Observe the right side of the glove box door, you will see a black plastic thing/arm that is connected to a cylindrical device; Remove the arm from the glove box door.
After the arm is disengaged from the glove box door. squeeze the sides of the glove box towards the middle, to defeat the 2 stops that prevent the glove box from falling completely open.
Whilst squeezing the sides of the box inward, lower the glove box door down.
With a flashlight, look into the area behind the glove box. You will see a long rectangular device, this is the door/tray for the cabin air filter. Pull it out, towards you. Once it is out, you will be able to extract the dirty filter, and replace it with a new one.
This entire procedure should take you about 3 minutes. Very easy.

You will have to remove glovebox and possibly dash panel to access the cabin filter compartment. Once you get the screws out and open the door, you then can pull out and exchange the filter

Take everything out of the glove box on the passenger side. Squeeze the black clips on either side of the glove box interior to free it from its retainer and pull it toward you. It will glide forward on hinged arms. Lower it as much as possible so it's out of your way.
