    Haven't looked, but maybe it is behind the glovebox. Anybody know?

    Open the hood, look at the left rear corner of the engine compartment. There is a little plastic door with two catches. Remove it and the filter is inside. Pics if you need them.

    I believe you mean right rear corner, by the cowl.

    Correct, but for those having an issue finding something under the hood, use the point of reference as they would be viewing.

    No, to simplify the matter, I stated the way I did for clarify. If someone has an issue locating the filter, perhaps, just perhaps, cowl would be meaningless to them.

    In order to get everyone on the same page, all locations on any vehicle are from the driver's perspective. IMO, trying to "simplify" by using other reference points only adds to the confusion. I figured if he can't find the cowl, he'll ask.

    I'm gonna agree with Paladin on this one.
    If I was asking someone where something is located on the vehicle, and someone was responding that it was under the hood, in the engine bay, I'd want instructions from the point of view I would be at, if I was opening the hood and looking into the engine bay.
    Having instructions from the point of view INSIDE the car and then having to think in reverse (or opposite) when locating something under the hood, would seem more confusing to me.

    I understand the "driver's perspective" instructions, just like you'd do in talking about a boat (Fore, Aft, etc) but I still agree with Paladin, someone who may not be versed in that, will find it easier from the point of view THEY will be at when looking.
    I would also say this would be the case when giving instructions for something in the trunk. Give it from the POV you'd be at when you are standing at the back of the car, opening the trunk. Just my .02

    Owners manual page 475:
    The filter is located in the fresh air inlet under the hood,
    behind a removable panel in the cowl on the passenger
    side of the vehicle, next to the windshield wipers. When
    installing a new filter, ensure its proper orientation.

    But that's not the way we techs talk. Case in point if your standing in front of the car and want to change the PASSENGER side turn signal bulb which comes on when the RIGHT turn signal is on are you changing the left bulb?;) If you want to use your way so there is never confusion say driver or passenger side so you're never wrong

    I totally understand. As an aerospace engineer we use left and right, #1 and #2 position indicators from the rear of an aircraft. Just wanted to help the guy out. So, we agree to disagree, just this once. :)
