4Runner Cabin filter replacement
To get to your cabin filter you first need to open the “glovebox” wide. Remove the screw, circled in blue and slide the little arm off. Now there are two “hooks” circle in red that holds the “glovebox” door in place. Push the side of the glovebox door in till you can slide the hooks out. This will open the glovebox wide. Now the filter unit is exposed, it is white. To remove it, unclip the two clips circled in blue holding it and slide it out. You can now remove the old cabin filter from the holder and insert a new one.
You can either use a Toyota OEM filter, which are pretty expensive and perform rather poorly, or you can make your own from 3M house A/C filter (using scissors to cut it). However there are no Bosch replacement filter that cost a little less than the OEM ones and works much better.
Bosch actually OEM these filters from Micron Air, they are available online (rockauto and autobarn) or from most Auto Zones.
Part # Bosch (F00E160176) or alternatively Bosh P3785
