Turn off the climate control system.
Move the front passenger seat fully rearwards and remove the front passenger floor mat.
Use a clip pry tool to carefully release the push clips that secure the front passenger footwell cover to the instrument panel. Then, while supporting the footwell cover, disconnect the two electrical connectors and move the footwell cover aside.
Working from top-to-bottom, use a trim tool to carefully release the right side panel from the center console.
Remove the T20 screw that secures the cabin filter cover to the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) module, then release the cabin filter cover and move it aside. On some vehicles, the screwn is a T20/6mm hybrid fastener. Tabs may also replace the screw: use your index finger and thumb to squeeze the two tabs at the bottom of the cabin filter cover. Tilt the cover outward to remove.
Fold the upper cabin filter’s tab upward and the lower filter’s tab downward.
Holding the tab on the upper cabin filter, pull the upper filter out from the HVAC module.
Holding the tab on the lower cabin filter, pull the lower filter upwards and then out from the HVAC module.
Ensuring that the arrows on both new filters face towards therearof the vehicle, insert the lower cabin filter into the HVAC module and lower it into place. Then, insert the upper cabin filter above it.
Fold the tabs inward so that the cabin filter cover can be installed.
Install the cabin filter cover by engaging the lower cover tab then securing the T20 screw or T20/6mm hybrid fastener. Tighten the screw to 1.2 Nm/0.89 ft-lbs. On vehicles with tabs instead of a T20 screw: maneuver the top notch of the cabin filter cover into place, then secure the tabs at the bottom of the HVAC module.
Reconnect the two electrical connectors to the components in the front passenger footwell cover, then resecure the cover with the push clips.
Align the right side panel with the front and rear locator slots on the center console, then apply pressure until all of the clips are fully secure.
Reinstall the front passenger floor mat then move the front passenger seat back into place.
