How does glove box come off to replace air cabin filter ?
First, take a good look at what you’re doing.
Look on the right side of open glove box and locate a plastic lever. You will see grooves on the end connected to the glove box. The grooved area is the spot to place the thumb in order to press this lever off the glove box when it comes time to do that.
Look up under the glove box. You will see two brass colored screws one on each side of the bottom of the glove box. These screws go up through two square plastic hinges that are attached to the glove box and into the the dash frame.
Okay, with the glove box closed remove the two brass colored screws, and put them aside so you won’t lose them..
Open the glove box and hold the glove box with your left hand and press on the plastic lever (grooved area) located on the right side of the glove box. This lever (the lever already mentioned above) is slotted and will pop off the glove box.
Put the glove box carefully aside.
Look straight in behind the glove box. You will see a rectangular black plastic cover approximately 1.5 inches wide by 8 inches long. On the right and left side are arrows pointing in. Press the arrows and pull out on the cover. This will slide out the tray that holds the filter. Remove old filter and insert the new one, flow arrows pointing down.
Retrieve glove box, hold in place, and attach plastic plastic lever to the right side of the glove box. The reverse of removal.
Next, the two plastic hinges located on the bottom of the glove box fit underneath the dash frame.
While holding the glove box in place (the glove box latch may hold glove box in place while installing screws) re-install the two screws through the plastic hinges into the frame and tighten.
Hope this helps you.
