Question about 2006 Toyota Corolla
Went to change cabin air filter, removed glovebox. When I went to put it back pushed too hard and entire support assembly came out. I only have 1 glove box support in my Corolla and need to know how to put it back
Open the glove box and there are push out tabs on the left and right side pop them out. Now watch it because you are about to dump the contents of your glove box on the floor. let the box hang freely from the lower hinge and look in the back. You will see a white panel that pulls out the panel has a tray attached with the filter element in it remove old element and replace with new 20ish bucks at the parts store lots more at the dealer. re-install filter tray and reverse your removal steps to re-install. Recommended approx 15k or annually

You cut the cross bar away with some diagonals and throw it away. It is just an assembly aid when they are putting the car together. Google "DIY MDX cabin air filter" and you will find step by step procedures with photos for changing the filter. It is not a difficult job.

I will never understand why this service is so expensive at the dealership.
I made a video showing how this is done: (I would recommend watching the video in HQ and full screen)

I have an 06 corrolla. Open the glove box, empty it out, and on both sides you will find philips head screws holding the supports. Once removed the glove box will tip forward and expose the cover of the cabin air filter. Carefully remove the cover and pull out the filter.(note the directional arrows of the filter as you remove it) Installation is a reversal of the above.
