I'm a softy - I ordered a new filter and it should be here today. The filter is nasty enough to change; I can't even imagine what it would be like to try and get this nasty stuff out of my AC coil, if I let it get in without a filter.

I just put the replacement filter in today. That was actually more difficult than getting the old one out. The engineer that designed that placement should be sentenced to 3 years hard labor - changing cabin filters. What was wrong with the old placement on the firewall - accessible with the hood open?

i agree, the whole idea with filters is for people to be able to change them and if they make it difficult its not going to get done

Thought I'd be proactive the other day, and (once I got my hood open after the release handle broke off) I popped the cabin filter housing cover off to check it out & replace.

Much to my surprise, there was nothing but a big hole there!

So mine has no cabin filter at all anymore, apparently removed and not replaced for unknown reasons by the previous owner. I can't tell if the correct housing is there for a replacement filter. Is the framework plastic or metal? The video on page 1 looks like a plastic frame that the filter slides into... all I see is metal on the edges of my filter reservoir.

the worse job on the PA, I loved the three high stack. Put one in lift it up put then next in. Doubt mine was ever changed, Id like not to do mine again but will I have a long handled needle nose pliers offset 45 an 90 that worked real well getting old ones out, pitty the ones who don't use the filter it will clog everything up.
