CABIN FILTER

2004 Toyota Avalon

Air Conditioning problem
2004 Toyota Avalon 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 47500 miles

Trying to replace cabin filter. Can't remove glove box - took out screws. Box won't drop down. Problem seems to be at the light button and the trunk remote control buton. Didn't want to force it.

Hello and thanks for the donation!

Try this..to remove the cabin air filter and glove box, first open the glove box and remove the 5 retaining screws. Now that you are past that part already, you will need to use a flat bladed screwdriver to remove the lower panel.

This will gain access to the electrical connector that you need to disconnect. Now you can remove the blove box and filter cover from the blower unit. Pull out the filter and remove the air refiner filter from the frame.

Installation is reverse of these procedures..

I've done the 5 screws. Diagram mentions 2 clips. I don't see any. Where do I insert the flat bladed screw driver to remove the lower panel?

2 clips are at the very left and very right of the end screws at top. Find the edges of the panel and start popping out the clips that hold it in by pulling it outward with a flat bladed tool / screwdriver
