  1. Release glove box:  Open the glove box and release the damper arm. This is accomplished by first removing the retainer cover/clip which slips over the end of the rod and post (pull/slide off the end of the rod). You must then remove the door stops (2) by prying inward on the tabs inside the glovebox.
  2. Remove filter and housing:  The glovebox will then lower to reveal the filter housing. Push inward on the release tabs on eaither side of the housing and slide it out.
  3. Install new air filter:  The last step is to install the new filter.  You will need to make sure you match the air flow direction on the new air filter with what is on the van.
