My dealer charged $26 each for the cabin air filters for my wife's Highlander and son's Matrix. Neither was available at Pep Boy's or AdvanceAuto.
The filter in the HL was surprisingly dirty after less than two years and 15,000 miles for a vehicle that it parked in a garage almost every night.

Nice to see another response to air filter change or A/C filter. I paid $38 for the A/C filter. I will check with other dealer next time when I need it. Toyota should suggest or recommend A/C filter change at 12K or 15K miles intervals even under normal driving condition.

Also have to take into account allergies. If your family has allergies i would recommend changing the filter every 10,000 miles.

I thought I read the manual that A/C filter can be washed and it's reuseable. It is just a piece of foam with a plastic frame. But maybe I was wrong?

In the Highlander the cabin air filter has no frame. It's some kind of fibrous paper. Doesn't look to be washable. The Matrix filter did have a plastic frame and looked more like an air filter with very tight pleats.
#26 of 30 cabin air filter/pcv valve? (2000 camry (v6))
Jul 28, 2005 (6:49 pm)
Does anyone know if a 2000 camry has a cabin air filter? I checked my owners manual but couldn't find any reference to any sort of air filter. If once exists, where is it and where can i purchase one?
Also, what does a pcv valve do and when should you replace it?

There is no cabin air filter (I believe it was added with the 2002 Camry redesign). The PCV valve is part of the system that purges combustion byproduct gases from the crankcase to the air intake/filter assembly. I believe the valve keeps the gases flowing in the right direction -- crankcase TO air intake. Toyota has no maintainence requirements for the PCV valve.
Clutches can give warning of failure in many ways -- your best bet is to have a competent mechanic check it out. My early carbureted VW Rabbit acted as though it was hesitating -- when you stepped on the gas from a stop, the car didn't move initially. I thought the dealer was giving me a line.
On my 1980 Volvo, it got very hard sometimes to move the shift lever into first gear -- I had to move it into second and then into first when pulling away from a stop. Then the clutch just went suddenly at a light. I couldn't put the lever into any gear, with the engine running. I finally got the idea of turning off the engine, shifted into second, and managed to get the car going (with lots of noise until the car got up to 20 mph or so) so I could limp to the garage nearby where I normally went for service.

So where is the air filter? Thanks.

Which one? The engine air filter is inside the engine bay in a plastic box attached to a large diameter duct that goes to the intake manifold. The cabin air filter is located in the A/C evaporator/heater core enclosure behind the glove compartment. Access and replacement instructions are in your owner's manual.
