I'd like to know the same thing on the Tour-X. I think it's behind the glove box, but how do you drop the glove box to get to the filter?

That being said, I no longer think about, or worry about changing the cabin filter. Years ago, I had a Continental whereas the filter was in front of the windshield, under the air intake. Car had 85,000+ Miles and never had cabin filter changed. (A/C and heat worked fine). Decided I'd check it out so I found and removed it. Yes, it was dirty and loaded with leaves. Shook it clean, then vacuumed it. Replaced it back. Never worried about replacing (or paying for replacing it).

Dropping glove box is pretty simple - there are plastic clips located on the inside "ceiling" of the glovebox (which act as retainers). Push the glovebox in a bit, and push the clips above the rear wall of the glovebox. There is also a damper on the left side - of which the arm slides off the pin (pin is affixed to glove box). The glove box bin will drop straight down.

Replacing the cabin air filter after a year is a bit too soon if you ask me. According to the owners manual it should be replaced every 22,500 miles.

What about engine air filter? Is K&N 33-5049 the only option we have for high flow aftermarket filter? It needs to be oiled and it costs $60. I had Upgr8 aftermarket dry filter in my previous Scion and it was just $10, but it worked as good as K&N.

I went through a K&N phase in 2004. I also don't notice any advantage to using them. I've since been using Wix or other cheap alternative. As long as it fits and is durable enough, it works for me.

To each their own. We have really bad pollen around here, so I do mine annually in my cars. Haven't tackled the TourX yet, but when I do it I can create a how-to post.

I would agree, but I did notice a significant difference when I installed high flow aftermarket engine filter in my previous car. Sure it was a weak 1.8 liter Scion, so I wonder if it makes any difference on our cars. If K&N is good for ~50,000 miles, it is worth the investment. OTOH, those filters probably cost around $3 to manufacture, so they are making a huge profit.
