Ordered the deodorizer-type replacement from Amazon; time to get rid of the intermittent funk . . .

Very nice! Not as easy as in my Kia Hybrid -- but not bad!

Haven't tried it yet on the L; but Acura wanted $95 to swap out the cabin air filter in our former RDX. I bought it for $16 and it literally took longer to clean out the glove box than it did to change the filter! Easily under five minutes once you've done one! On the other hand, the Volvo C70 CAF swap requires three skinny hands and a magic incantation !

Awesome video! But good lord, that's an awful lot of disassembly to get to the filter. Not a good design at all! Hyundai has the easiest to change filters I've ever seen. You pop out two little plastic pieces allowing the glovebox to swing down out of the way and then voila, remove the snap on cover and pull out the filter. Takes all of 2 minutes. Fiat requiring you to remove 8 bolts and three trim pieces to get to it is a bit ridiculous! I think I might go ahead and let the dealer take care of it....
