Air Filters for a 2006 Prius

Where is the passenger cabin air filter located and how do I change it?

Look in your glove box.There’s an Owner’s Manual to read.

Very simple. take less than 2 minutes. My manual is out in the car…otherwise I’d tell you what page it’s on in your manual.

It’s actually behind the glove box. You open the box, pull off the little shock absorber (It’s on the right of the box - slows the box opening) and just pull out the air filter assembly. It takes 2 minutes, as long as the crud in the filter doesn’t give you nausea.

Thanks. The owners manual was lost when my kids cleaned out my wifes prius.
