I want to give some information regarding replacing the cabin air filter in the rav4ev.
I decided 13 months 20K miles was worth looking into that.

I googled some info on this form:
dealers charge $69

A link was posted to the OEM part on amazon:

I ordered one of Ebay:

$5.98 including shipping

And after watching this youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lszx-BDfxJ8
It took me 2 minutes to exchange it.

Good video.

I just did mine and it took me less than 5 minutes including cleaning out the glove box. I did find the hydraulic thing a little hard to remove but everything else was simple.

I just squeezed it between my fingers and could slide the thingie off.
I was surprised how much dirt had collected in just over a year ;-)

Are the EV filters the same as the non EV cabin filters? I want to order a few on hand but want to make sure. Are there other filters i should be worried about? Thanks,

Thank you! I just ordered a couple.

Anyone have experience with the WIX brand on the rav4?
