Hi Everyone. Can anyone school me on how to replace the cabin/ dust filter? Did a search that yielded, "its behind the glove box". Any help is greatly appreciated! Pics would be wonderful!!!

Thanks in advance.

Ha ha , 2 on behind glove box.

Remove 2 screws on panel Under glove box.
Flip panel out.
rectangulat bit with 2 slide clamps is exposed (lay on your back, head facing under the glove box)
Slide 2 clamps to the ends. Remove filter by pulling down and slightly rotating.
Hint :Remember which way it came out

not quite sure if your trying to be humorous but can you walk me thru this DIY? If not, please don't respond with what one already knows.

Thanks.

Hey, I just used Bazzle's procedure to replace my cabin filter and it worked fine. After you remove the panel under the glove box, slide the 2 clamps to unlock the filter cover, remove filter...pulling down and rotating. I used my shop vac to clean out the filter housing.

*Notice Bazzle's hint.

Also, I didn't have to lay on my back...I'm short.

I think linh was just suggesting you get under there and figure it out, it's not rocket science. Dont be afraid to unscrew a few screws and try to figure things out, it has worked for me. That being said, SLK32.com has the best description of how to do it that I've seen: Pollen Filter. Good luck.
