: installing cabin air filter

01-21-06, 10:16 AM
I just wanted to check with those who have replaced this filter. I installed it with arrow facing the cabin, and the with the long length of the filter vertical. I wasnt sure how tight the filter fits into the slot however. I slid it behind the plastic tabs on the sides (toward the cabin) but the two top plastic tabs keep the filter out about a half an inch from the cabin side. might have thought this filter would fit flush up against the side of the slot. I did see the installation instructions but it doesnt address the particulars of the fit. Everything went back together fine. Just want to make sure its in there properly.

that is the way that my install went too...I also was not sure of the gap; the filter actually seemed to not rest properly until I put the cover on it and then I really couldn't tell if it was in properly; I hope it is...
