According to online sources, the cabin air filter is located behind the lower glove box in a 2008 Toyota Tundra. In order to access the Toyota, you must disconnect the piston rod on the right-hand side of the glove box. Then, you can squeeze the side supports, which will cause the glove box to open as wide as possible, giving you optimum access to the cabin air filter. You can then examine or change the cabin air filter.

  • What is a cabin air filter?

A cabin air filter is a device fitted on some vehicles in order to purify the air which enters the vehicle from the outside. It works to remove pollutants such as dirt, grit and pollen from the air, before allowing the air to enter the vehicle itself. This means that the air inhaled by the passengers is cleaner and healthier. The cabin air filter is quite a new device, and is not yet used on all makes and models of car.

  • How to change the cabin air filter on a 2008 Toyota Tundra

It is apparently very easy to change the cabin air filter thanks to its accessible location within the Toyota Tundra. However, if you encounter any difficulties, the first port of call should be to contact a qualified mechanic. They should be able to offer you any advice or practical help you may need, for free or for a small fee.

On the other hand, there are lots of different tutorials available on the internet. These come in the forms of both written instructions (often with accompanying diagrams) and video tutorials, so you can choose the tutorial which is most suited to you.

It's easy: On the 2007, 2008, 2009 and the 2003 4 Runner are all in the same place.
It is behind the lower glove box. Just open glove box disconnect the little piston rod on the right side then squeeze in the side supports so the glove box will open way down. The cabin filter it right behind the glove box. You will see a snap on door that covers the filter. Pull it off and slide out the filter.
