7. Replace with new one and reinstall on blower unit.

8. Reinstall the instrument lower passenger panel.

When installing a new microfilter make sure of the following:

- The filter is installed so that the arrow, on the end of the filter, is facing the rear of the vehicle and is pointed upward.

- The microfilter sits on top of the two black plastic tabs, not behind them.

- The ledge on the back side of the microfilter cover panel slides below the microfilter.

NOTE: If the microfilter is improperly installed, the ledge on the back side of the microfilter cover panel pushes directly into the microfilter, causing distortion. A distorted microfilter may interfere with the recirculation door.
