milton, once again you come through with another great DIY instructional Going to add this to the DIY ES300/330 thread at the top, thanks again!

This is a very easy maintenance task everyone should do. I've done the filter change 2 times already with my '01 ES, and may do it one more time sometime this summer just to check on the condition of the filter. Here's what a dirty filter looks like after 80K miles when I changed it last year



BTW, you can also find the A/C filter instructional stated in your owner's manual, but the pictures milton provided are more helpful IMO.

Wow, that's exactly what happened to me! I recently finished up the 60K service on my mothers '99 ES and when I went to pull the cabin filter....nothing. I was shocked. Nothing but a few leafs and junk.

Anyway, I just wanted to add some info on the filter itself....I ordered both of these cause I didn't know what was what. One is a deodorizing filter (dark) and one is simply a filter (white). I installed the deodorizing filter and it doesn't smell at all in there!

88880-33020- FILTER SUB-ASSY, CLEAN AIR => w/deodorizer ~$45
88880-33040- FILTER SUB-ASSY, CLEAN AIR => ~$35

BTW - I had a few pics on this DIY too but your pics are much better than mine, good job .
