Find your car’s cabin air filter. The location of the cabin air filter is behind the glove box or under the dashboard. Your vehicle’s owner manual will also tell you where it is located. You can search on the Google to get some hint to where it is found if unclear.
When you have located the cabin air filter location, remove the clips, screws or wing nuts that hold the housing in place. Take off the cover and then remove the filter. Check carefully. Because, some vehicles have two filters. When you get the filter you can guess, if it needs to clean or replace. If it is got black color time has come to replace. If filter is needs to clean, clean by vacuum cleaner both sides of filter.
Before reposition the filter again, clean the filter housing compartment very well by vacuum cleaner. Take a rag and wipe the inside housing compartment, if you can reach there.
Put the cabin air filter in again. (NOTE: be sure you install the filter with the correct air flow direction).
Place the housing cover back on, putting any screws or clips you took off back on. If you had to remove the glove box or dashboard to get to the cabin air filter, put it back in place by reversing the steps you used to take it off.
