Default Cabin Air Filter

Ok. I have been through the books, and contacted VW Service and all they will tell me is it is just like a jetta, well I do not own a jetta, and do not want to take it into the dealer for service so i know it is located behind the glove box. I would like to inspect and change my cabin air filter if it needs it, but can not see how to remove the glove box to access the filter. Can someone point me to a service document or explain here how to change it out?
Thanks

Default Should pollen filter be replaced at 15000km?

I just had a 15K service and they have not replaced it. Is that right?

If one were to do it yourself, where would you get a filter and is it hard to replace yourself?

In the U.S. "Carefree Maintenance" schedule, the pollen filter isn't replaced until 20K miles. If the schedule's similar in Australia, 15K kilometers would be too early.

I haven't replaced the filter yet myself, but if you look at YVR's pictures from eBahn it appears to be an easy task.

Plenty of aftermarket vendors for the filters, such as Mann, ~12USD mail order. In the U.S., local auto parts stores can get aftermarket filters if they don't have them on the shelf, not sure about other countries. An actual VW filter at your local VW dealer probably will run a few bucks more.

I have a 2007 EOS and to change the cabin air filter I removed the two plastic screws under the glove compartment and pulled back toward the seat a pliable cover. Next I slid the plastic filter holding device and removed it. Then I removed the filter. I then installed the new filter and reversing the order completed the job. All of this was accomplished with some manipulation but none the less it was accomplished somewhat easily.

cmaggio is spot on, that is exactly right. Just be careful not to damage the mountings of the filter when putting it in. Best way is to fit the plastic bit to the filter when it is partially in so you can push it up with the guides in the right place.
