Pull the glovebox open, then out toward you, removing it from the hinges. There's a black panel hidden behind it, release the tabs and pull it out. There's the filter. Simply reverse the directions to put it back together.

lol mine looked like that after about 30k miles the dealership wanted $60 for that and another $40 for an air filter i almost shit my pants!

I can get one off ebay for about $10 and a K&N air filter for about $50 which is alot better than the one mazda would give you so I just vacuumed all the crap out and put it back in good as new well....almost

For those of you that use ebay and are looking to replace your cabin filter finding one that fits the 09-10 can a headache there is a lot of wrong info saying it fits 03-09 and different part numbers not matching and so on but I finnally confirmed that the TYC cabin filter matches up with the oem part number here is the link to their website with instructions actually using the correct year and model:

http://extranet.soleniuminc.com/gene...es/800131P.pdf

I didnt want to buy the wrong one and just because it says it fits the 09-10 I was getting to much mixed info and had to find out for sure.

Hey Tom, that's what my cabin filter looked like too! lol

Anyway...I should have come on the forums instead of wasting the last 2 days running around to 10 different parts stores to find out they have the wrong one or don't have the wrong part in stock lol. Dealer wanted to charge me $27!




$3.99 amazon prime one day shipping, Will be here Monday. The reviews say it fits. I'll update if I have any issues.

P.S. Is anyone interested in me making an install thread on how to replace it? I know it's easy enough but pictures are always nice...

There's only one thing to add to those instructions. I had a black plastic shock on the right side that allows the glove box to open slowly. This shock just pops off at the top(I believe) by pushing the thinner side sideways.

I hope that helps.

ya thats true they did leave that out anyway...you just pull the peice to the right (its at the bottom though connected to the actual glovebox) and it pops off then you can remove the whole glovebox then just re attach it after your done and enjoy clean air lol
