Remove the glove box.. Remove the screws and pry it down and out..the the filters can then be accessed.(2)
Very Easy job!

The air filters are behind the glovebox. You have to pull the glovebox out of the dash and the filters are on the right side.

Do you have automatic climate control (dual zone)? What year and model are you referring to?

I just changed mine. Unless your steering wheel is on the UK side then they will be behind the glove box just under the dash line, bellow the airbag, behind the right side vent. The opening is only large enough for one to go in at a time. You slide the the first one to the right and then put the second one in.
