Working on my dad's 1996 4 Cyl Toyota Camry last night and decided to check. there's the same slot but no filter. ordered a carbon activated one off amazon. Going to need a shop vac and some lysol in there. it's been 20 years and 200K miles with no filter!!

Replaced my filter today and decided to use this opportunity to create a video about it. I have to give credit to speedkar9, creating automotive videos is a lot more challenging than you think.

Nice video MrBooby. I did this two months back and there was no filter to begin with in my car. I struggled a bit and this video would have helped

I had the same experience...bruised ribs and all.

Thanks for the video, like many mine didn't have a filter there and I got out as much debris as I could. I can get the upper filter to slide in but not slide up, any suggestions?

You just have to wiggle it and it took me a while but was finally able to slide it up. Check to see if there is any more debris in there.

Slide a thin stick or something like a ruler or a long pencil below the filter (after the filter is slided in). Using this stick move it upwards until it is completely up and locked in position.
