The first two steps are to open the hood and then move to the passenger side of the car.

To access the filter housing, you'll have to remove the rectangular shaped cowl cover.

Gently push in the two release tabs on the front edge of the cowl cover before lifting it off.

Set the cowl cover aside in a safe place.

Once the cowl cover is out of the way, you'll see the rectangular shaped filter access panel.

Slide the old filter straight out of the slot.

Inspect both sides of the old cabin filter.

If the old filter is dark grey or black and clogged with dirt, dust, pollen, hair, insects, twigs, leaves, soot and other debris, it should be replaced with a new element.

I recommend buying the Fram CF11668 "Fresh Breeze" filter since it has excellent reviews on Amazon.

If the old filter is relatively clean, you can just tap out the large debris and remove any fine dust with a vacuum cleaner.
