How to Change the Cabin Filter on a Mitsubishi Endeavor

by 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.

Open the glove compartment.

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

Unhook the stop bar on the right side of the glove compartment.

Pull the glove compartment out of the dash. Disconnect the light wire once the glove compartment is about halfway out.

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.

Slide the old filter out of the filter housing.

Insert the new filter into the housing. Make sure the "Up" arrow printed on the filter is pointing towards the ceiling of the Endeavor.

Replace the cabin filter cover.

Insert the glove compartment back into the dash. Reconnect the light wire once the compartment is halfway in.

Reconnect the stop bar over the hook on the right side of the glove compartment. Replace the four screws that hold the glove compartment in place
