Changing out your cabin air filter, or what is sometimes called a pollen filter, is one of the cheapest and easiest services you can perform. You should change this filter once a year unless you suffer from allergies, or live in a dusty environment, at which point you should check and/or change the filter every 9 months.

Changing the filter is simple and requires no tools. Open the hood of the car and move to the passenger side. In the area of the engine compartment, closest to the dashboard on the passenger side, you will see a plastic cover covering the battery. Unclip the three snap clips on the cover and remove it.

Turn the cover over and the filter is on the under side. Pull the old filter out and replace it with a new one. It is just held in by friction and small plastic tabs along the sides. It is a good idea to replace the filter outside of the engine bay away from the air housing as dirt and debris will fall out of it while removing it, also wipe out the air box before installing your new filter.
