Replacing the Toyota Sienna Cabin Air Filter: A Comprehensive Guide

Welcome to Programming Remote! Today, we’ll guide you through the process of changing the cabin air filter on a 2020 Toyota Sienna. Although we’re working on a 2020 model, the process is similar for several different years of the Sienna.

The cabin air filter is located behind the glove box, so the first step is to open the glove box. On the right-hand side, you’ll find a latch that needs to be pulled straight to the right to release it. Once the latch is undone, push in on the sides of the glove box to allow it to come down. Simultaneously, push up on one side and then the other to clear the stops and fully open the glove box. Then, remove the glove box entirely.

Underneath, you’ll see an access door with two clips on either side. Pinch the clips to remove the access door and reveal the filter. It’s essential to note that OEM style filters have an arrow pointing up, indicating the proper installation orientation. For aftermarket filters with an arrow indicating airflow, ensure that the airflow goes in the correct direction.

Once the new filter is in place, reattach the access door and then proceed to reinstall the glove box by lining up the hinges and pushing it back into position. Finally, reattach the latch, and you’re done!
