Anyone know how to replace the cabin air filter?? I know it is in the glovebox but it is not obvious on how to get at it.

Thanks for the info guys! Replacement was relatively painless and the filter was totally clogged with debris. I vacuumed and washed it and reinstalled.

What type was yours? Mine looked like paper fiber so I was afraid to wash it. I just blew it out with air. It was pretty dirty as well.

Mine was the original OEM sturdy cloth fiber filter, not the paper kind. I will definitely buy a new replacement next time as there is only so much you can rinse out - still pretty gross.

Would someone show me how to remove the globe box? I tried and I couldn't.

Six screws have to be removed. Two @ the top, two @ the bottom and the two that hold the latch @ the top. Pull down the top left corner, then pull to the left,(center of car), and out.
