Here’s a quick tutorial on how to replace the cabin filter in your car. You may also be able to find some instructions in your manual. My manual refers to the filter as an “air conditioner filter.” The car I’m using for this video is a 2009 Camry.

I’m no mechanic, but I’m pretty sure most cabin filters are accessed the same way. I know the cabin filter in my 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe is also accessed this way. The only difference you’ll run into is how you release the latches holding the glove box up. Again, you should be able to find help in your owner’s manual.

I purchased my cabin filter and the Ozium air freshener at The cabin filter was about $12. Every other cabin filter I found online was in the $20-25 range. The ozium was $8.99 on Amazon, but after ordering it I found it at Walmart for around $4.

Remember that cabin filters, like oil and air filters, are vehicle specific…so be sure you buy the correct filter!
