Did you piss anybody off recently? They could have stuck a dead fish or an open can of tuna under your seat. Other popular suggestions is that you eat in your car and leave the bags in too long, you/others fart a lot, and you drive with the vent open by the cow farms. Whichever applies to you most is probably the culprit. :) .


um no but i smoke in my car while i drive and i know that affects it also

My 2002 Solara had mildew issues from time to time and I wondered if it was possible to change that thing out.

Now that I have a 2006, I will learn how to change it out so my car won't stink after a few seasons of AC use.

I wonder how good the 3M filter idea would work instead of using a Toyota one and getting screwed on the price from Toyota?

-you will see a little hinge on the right with a screw in it
-unscrew it and take apart the hinge
-then press both sides of the glove department on the black plastic inward
-that will release the glove department and just lay it on the floor
-then if look you will see a white box, move out the wires from it while trying to pull it out.
-then take the filter out and replace with the new
-after that follow the arrow on the box to make sure it is going inside upright.
-after that just attach the glove box and screw the hinge back together
-and thats it

hopefully this may help, i will take pictures when i have a chance.


Thanks for sharing as i was going to change filter this coming saturday.
Cheers
