How To: Change Your Cabin Air Filter

No tools required.

Open your glove box.

There are 2 tabs on either side of the glove box.

Press those inwards, this will allow the Glove box to fall.

Look behind the glove box and you will see a flap with 3 clips.

Unclip those with your fingers and pull downwards.

The Air filter is inside there.





Remove the old air filter.



Insert the new air filter. "airflow" is written on the front if the filter with a down arrow. Make sure you insert it properly.

Thats it.

Technically they are supposed to be changed every 12,000 miles or once a year.
