Garage List
thats either in front of the glove compartment or at the hood/engine compartment firewall right on top, before the windshield wipers is my first guess

Hey Aus, these are easy to find (ie the two boxes clise to the windshield) and very easy to change (ie few screws per box, rip out the old, put in the new), or maybe I missunderstand your question mate?

It's the two black pieces right at the front of the windshield, near the wipers. There are two small filters per side.

That seems way too often. Are you driving on dirt roads a lot or something?

I have to do them annually regardless of mileage. The pollen here accumulates and it fires off my allergies. Freakin' sucks.
