Oh ok. I thought it'd permanently pull in at least a small amount of outside air? Guess not.

I rarely even have the fan running as most my trips are short or at night :D

Don't know. There is a noticeable different when switching between the two settings though.

Oh dear, I'm scared to see mine :(

I always have the fan/aircon on :P Fan on outside air.... aircon on recirculate.

GG mine. I'll check mine later today when I get home from uni.

Hey thanks for the heads up. ;)

Just had a look at mine & doesn't look half bad, just tapped the grit out of it & gave it a dust down.

Though I did find a small cockroach stuck in there. :shock:

Graham,

In Step 1 of your first post in this topic, after you "Open your glovebox and pull together the parts circled in red while pushing it down further", how exactly do you "simply pull it [the glove box] out"?

I have allowed the gove box to open further than normal as in the first part of your procedure, so that I can see the fuse box and filter enclosure behind the glove box. However, I have tried tugging on the glove box in all directions without any success in removeing it - and it seems too awkward to try to remove the filter without completely removing the glove box (with my thick arms at least).

Before I go applying more force I was hoping someone would provide more specific information on how to remove the glove box itself. Perhaps others might find the clarifcation useful also.

Thanks everyone.

mitsfan, there is also strut attached on left hand side of glovebox, will need to unclip this as well.

Then just let the glovebox drop upside down, can let it hang there to get to the filter.

Just an update that there is aftermarket cabin filter available locally at most auto stores for the CJ Lancer and same one fits Outlander. It is a Wesfil cabin filter, code is WACF0090. This should retail in the $30-$40 bracket, about half the cost compared to the Mitsubishi part that I was quoted at my dealer last week for $68 or so.

Easy job, my CJ is 2 years old and the filter was filthy as!!
