  • Open your vehicle's glove box.
  • Remove the screw securing the small black strut mounted on the right outer side of the glove box, using an appropriate size screwdriver. Disengage the black strut from the side of the glove box, using your hand.
  • Push the sides of the glove box inward to release it from the dashboard.
  • Examine the inside of the dashboard assembly and locate the filter housing. The filter housing features a long black rectangle shaped cover with a plastic latch on both the left and right side.
  • Remove the housing cover by depressing the latches and pulling it off the filtration unit.
  • Remove the old filter and clean out any remaining debris left in the housing.
  • Insert the new cabin air filter into the housing and replace the cover. Reinstall the glove box and secure the dampening strut to the side.
