Thanks for the great post and pics guys.
My AC compressor was replaced, and I figured it was as good a time as any to replace the cabin filter. Thanks to the great instructions posted above, the whole affair took about 5 minutes.

A word of caution- when trying to remove the filter housing, the gasket had gotten stuck. I just had to pull pretty hard. This is probably due to misuse.

My filter was totally gross and full of grime and debris.

Spray Lysol on a new filter for a clean fresh scent in your car!

Ok, I had to go and make sure it was there. It was. Still looks new.

I was told that if you attached fabric softener sheets to the filter the incoming air into the car would smell great. Y'all think this might work?

Rockauto.com $9 apiece. Ordered 3 to make it worth shipping. Appear to be same quality as OEM.

I wouldn't do that for a car, maybe on your home ac.
For the in cabin filter I'd spray it with either lysol or fabreeze.

Might restrict the airflow more than it should. I wouldn't do that. I'd spray it with something or better yet, to avoid any possible flammable fluids, just use an air freshened in the car or discount auto has a small bottle of febreZe for like $2

My window tint installer said that fabreeze--in any quantity--would cause deterioration of the tint and adhesive. He advised not to use it in the car at all!
