Question about Mitsubishi Cars & Trucks
This filter is an optional item and may or may not be dealer installed.
The procedures in this article are typical of most Misubishi vehicles.
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
1. The filter is located behind the glove compartment. Open the glove compartment, (disconnect damper rod, if equipped) push on the sides while pulling down to release the latches. Allow the glove box to swing down on its hinges.
2. Remove the 2 air filter screws.
Some vehicles may not have an installed cabin air filter, but may have a sealed filter compartment. In such cases, the sealed compartment will need to be punched-out and a new air filter frame acquired before a cabin air filter can be installed.
The filter is optional and may not be installed in all vehicles. If the filter compartment is sealed as shown, use a flat head screwdriver to punch through the perforated plastic cover. Some vehicles may not have the filter frame pre-installed in the compartment. If so, accquire the filter frame before installing filter element.
3. Remove cabin air filter. Remove the old filter frame (if present) by sliding it out towards you. Remove old filter from its frame and install new filter, ensuring that Air Flow arrow is pointing down.
4. Install in reverse order.

Filter is located behind the glove box. All you need is a screwdriver to replace.
1. Open the glove box and empty to take the weight off the box.
2. On the right side there is a plastic hinge like device held on by one Phillips head screw. If you have trouble removing with a Phillips screwdriver you can remove with a narrow flat head screwdriver. Remove the screw and slide hinge off the mount.
3. To drop the glove box press the sides slightly inwards while 'forcing' it open beyond it's normal stopping point. Careful as when it releases it will fall wide open and may even fall from its hinged area. Set it aside.
4. Behind the glove box there is probably some fiberous material inserted to prevent noise like squeaking when it rubs. It is sticky on one side to hold it in place. Just remove and place out of the way.
5. Behind the fiberous material there'll be a cover which kinda looks like a grille. Mine was white and it is in the center of the opening. Remove it by releasing the clips at the left or right. It comes right out.
6. When the cover comes off slide the filter out and replace it. The filter lays flat and just slides in and out easily. However, if it has been some time since you replaced be prepared for a lot of debris on top of the filter such as leaves, grass or other general type of debris that has been sucked into the filter. It also may be the source of any bad odors that you smell through the air conditioning system.
7. Reverse the process. Replace the cover and push the glove box lid back into place. When you replace the glove box be careful to make sure the hinge you initiallly removed the screw from is not left behind the glove box or you will have to remove again to get it out. Replace the screw and do not over tighten as it screws into plastic and then your done.

The cabin air filter is behind the glove box. The first thing you need to do is empty the glove box. (2) you need to remove the side panel that runs along the side of the shifter, it is a long panel and has on clip near the firewall, the clip will have a phillips head on it, just back it out and remove this panel. Then remove all the bolts (10MM) holding the glove box on, The glove box is will stay up because it has two hings that run into the sides of dash. All you need to do is squeeze the glove box untill it pops out and the glove box will be out. There is no need to unhook the wiring for the light bulb just let the glove box hang on the floor. Now you will see a black cover that is held on by 4 small metal clips, remove these and pull the cabin air filter out. when you reinstall the new one, make sure you put it in with the air flow arrows pointed in the right direction or else you will cause blockage. reinstall and enjoy your new heppa filter
