HOW TO: replacement of in cabin air filters.

I ordered some new filters, and documented how to replace them.
here is where i got mine. Great price and super fast shipping.

http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53...Q5fAccessories


Here are the new ones.



First you empty all the crap out of your glove box.

there are two posts that keep the glove box from opening all the way, you can easily flex the box and get it to come out without removing a bunch of bolts.





Once the box is open, you have to release the cable that holds it closed. This just slides out of a notch in the side of the box.





Once the box is down, you can see the lid for the covers, remove this screw.



removed the lid and you can see the filters (or lack thereof)



use a flat blade or knife to removed one, then slide the other over and remove it as well.

Mine were pretty bad. I ran my air for a minute to make sure no leaves and crap were still in there.





Install is reverse of removal, slide in one, push it over, and slide in the other. Be sure to pay attention to the air flow direction arrows.







once you put it all back together, you are done!

Re: HOW TO: replacement of in cabin air filters.

yea i think they were.. airflow should point down. the air flows down through the filter.

check out the "deals from other sites" thread for a killer deal on new filters. $10 shipped for a set, and they ship wicked fast. I added the link to the HOW TO post.

Are those the ones that feel like paper right?

I bought 2 sets in 2 weeks (due to mice eating my first one) (one from trustednameautoparts) and the second set i bought from "aircabinman" on ebay. These (aircabinman)had no air flow arrows, but are made of a "plasticy"/styrafoam (hard to explain, but did not feel like paper) material that i liked better than the paper feeling ones. Who knows if they filter better or not though, but for $11, they are also a good deal.

I replaced mine with Fram's....A little more expensive but they were treated with Arm & Hammer baking soda and were carbon infused, meaning NO musty smells.

Re: HOW TO: replacement of in cabin air filters.

Great write up beason. Thanks a lot. This is the first vehicle I've had that actually has these in it. Took a look at mine this morning and used the link you supplied to order me a set. Amazing at how much dust and crap was stuck in mine and the T only has 41K on her. Great deal at $9.97 shipped.
