Hi Johnny.

 

Remove the glove box ,

behind the glove box you will see the blower box.

On top there is a plastic door that can be removed by pushing the tap on left sides inwards, then remove and then slide out the filter element.

This is horizontally fitted not vertically .

 

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back with the reply box below and not the poor or bad service button ,
For further assistance there is no extra charge after accepting.
