Nothing in your owners manual? It could be a number of places, but on my Camry it is behind the glove box. Release the door by disconnecting any retaining straps or struts, then push or pull the stop catches so that the door swings down towards the floor. Then slide out the glove box itself and the filter should be in plain sight.

Try filter1.com. If you navigate through the site, they at least give you an idea of where it's located. Or search for a corolla-specific forum on the web. Most enthusiast sites have step-by-step illustrated instructions for these menial tasks.

In the earlier models, open the glove box and remove the screw on the lower right side. Squeeze the two sides and the box will slide out. The filter is behind a small door that is held by two clips.

Smile 2009 Corolla Cabin Filter

Thanks for all the replies. Yes indeed, it is located behind the bottom glove box (2009 has two). No tools are needed on the 2009. Locate the strut on the right outside of the glove box, squeeze the keeper together and slide the strut off, move the glove box to one side to release the side stops, and the pull the glove box off the bottom hinges (it just snaps on and off). You will see a black cover over the filter. Pull the right hand tab over to release the cover and remove it. Replace the filter and reverse the procedure. Very simple job that should only take about 10 minute after you do it once. Total cost was $9.00 for the filter. The dealer wanted $50.00 to replace. Thanks again.
