Just recently found a vid from youtube, how to change cabin air filter. Has anyone tried these before? As far as I know, some cars have them and some don't.

B-Series and up are the only Falcons I know of to have a cabin air filter.

If it is in the car, its behind a sliding door hidden behind the glovebox. So the glovebox has to come out.

That's right.

Only need to take the glove box out (opening it isn't sufficient).

then you need to re-hook up the dampner which is by far the worste part of the whole job.

Which is only on higher spec cars... I thought it was Ghia and up, but i'm guessing its Fairmont and up.

Other plebs don't have such luxuries like us. :D

how do you go about changing from mesh to carbon?

Do you have to cut the filter cover off of the mesh one and reuse it?
