    Those of you who know me no how Anal I am about my car...anyway last weekend I was picking up some motorcycle parts and down the block is the WORLD Famous BMA …so I figured I would drop buy for some baguettes and wine….lol
    I picked up the cabin filter/micro filter…I could not believe my eyes upon removal

    not too bad...


    WHAT THE &%$@$@!~



    YEECH!




    It took me about 30 min. to do the job
    All you need is
    1_ 20 Torqs
    1-Philips Screw drive
    1- Flashlight

    P.S. it is way easier to remove the glove box than to lie on your back to try to work.my.02

    which one was yours? All of them look like they havent been changed in a long time. When I first changed mine it was real dirty like that but the second time (1 year) it was still relitivly clean in comparison.

    I changed mine and to my dissappointment it was no where near as dirty. There were a bunch of leaves and crap though.

    2) this is what comes in form the outside
