As the original poster I would like to say thank you to the answerer who responded in a variation of this question. @8^) If you look under the plastic lever you will see a copper colored bar that runs parallel to the handle insert a small flat bladed screwdriver and gently push the bar towards the dash when you do that the door will open. There are two Phillips screws holding the latch mechanism the best way to unscrew them is to either use a stubby screwdriver or a 1/4" ratchet with a socket to fit a screwdriver bit. The new part can be ordered for about fifteen dollars at the local dealer.

How do you replace the cabin air filter for Lexus gx470?

If you have a 2004-2006 (other years may also be the same), the cabin air filter sits behind the glove compartment in your vehicle. To access the cabin air filter, open the glove compartment as you would normally. On the left side of the compartment, you will see a knob with a retractable string that attaches to the glove compartment (this controls how fast the glove compartment falls when you open it). While gently pushing up on the glove compartment, turn the knob attachment clockwise slightly and then away from the glove compartment to release it. Then push in on both ends of the glove compartment to release the catch triggers that lock the glove compartment movement downward. At this point, the glove compartment will be completely free, so make sure to keep your hand underneath it so it does not completely fall out. You do not need to completely remove the glove compartment, you only need it to be released from the vehicle's dash. Inside the newly exposed area behind the glove compartment, you will see a white filter housing panel. Push in the two clips to release the filter housing. Replace the filter with a suitable replacement, making sure to maintain the position of the filter (filters will not work correctly if they are not in the right position). Place the filter housing panel back into the vehicle. Make sure it is locked in with the two clips. Reverse the steps above to replace the glove compartment. NOTE: You may find it easier to attach the control level (the retractable string) to the glove compartment before locking in the two catch triggers on either side of the glove compartment.

How do you replace cabin air filter on 2001 Honda accord?

Not sure this is the approved manner but this is how I perform the change. First remove the glove compartment. This involves removing 4 screws from inside the glove compartment. Next remove the lower trim piece ( below the glove compartment), this involves removing the fuse cover and then removing 2 screws. This trim piece should then pull out with a little light pulling. Once this is out remove 3 screws holding the glove compartment in place. Remove the glove compartment. There is a metal trim piece that held the glove compartment in that you remove with a couple of screws. Then remove the filter cover (it snaps right off). Remove and replace the filters. Reverse the procedure to finish.

Open the glove compartment. If your glove compartment door is held by a small plastic arm, push the arm off its post. Squeeze both sides of the glove compartment door while gently pulling down. The door will come off. Look into the space revealed behind the glove compartment. You will see a plastic rectangular drawer, approximately 8" wide and 1" high. It may have release tabs on both sides. Press tabs, and remove by pulling straight out. The paper filter element can be lifted from the drawer. Replace with a clean element, noting the direction arrows on the filter element. Replace in reverse order, and rehang the glove compartment.
