How to Change the Cabin Filter on a Mitsubishi Endeavorby David Clair
Every model-year of the Mitsubishi Endeavor has a built-in cabin air filter that is designed to clean the air that enters the passenger compartment. The filter works by trapping particles, such as pollen and dust, so they do not make their way through the air conditioning system. Mitsubishi recommends replacing this filter every 15,000 miles or once every 12 months. A clean cabin filter will improve the air circulation within the interior of the car and will help prevent outside odors from entering the cabin.

Remove the four screws, two on the top of the glove compartment and two on the bottom, with a Phillips head screwdriver.

Press the tabs on both sides of the cabin filter cover towards the middle of the filter compartment to unhook them. Remove the cabin filter cover.
