My wife has changed the cabin filter in my Outlanders. It may appear simple but it needs careful hand and fingers. She describes the procedure like this:
1-Open the bottom glove compartment
2-Detach the small black plastic strip on the right hand side
3-Press both edges of the hard plastic glove container very firmly (this was very difficult) until the plastic detaches from the little black plastic knob on either side.
4-When 3-happens the container collapses down disclosing the cabin filter space. It shows the old cabin filter.
5-Pull out the old filter taking careful note of the original position, so that you can put in the new filter exactly in the same geometry.
6- Job done!!

Outlander Service manual is usually in CD/DVD and can be ordered at a price from a dealer or from www.helminc.com. If you donít want to pay then a Mitsubishi dealer manager can help you to get one free of cost.
Every year each dealership receives a number of CD/DVD (e.g. Outlander 2007, Outlander 2008, etc) that is generally used in its service department for consultation. Quite sure the service department is using the 2010 version CD/DVD so the old version CD/DVD is being putting aside without use. Talk with an employee of the service department and offer $10 per a copy.

Batman, you must have a real nice dealer!!! Why would the service dept knowingly sell something that would help you avoid using them for service (especially below cost)?

You may be OK, but indeed my dealer in California offered me a free CD/DVD 2007 in May 2009. I think very few owners would like to apply maintenance procedures in the CD/DVD because the majority of procedures require SST (Special Service Tools) and a ramp.

Thanks for the post. I had no idea how to change the cabin filter, read above, had it out in about two minutes. It looked really dirty, too, picked up a new one at auto zone, and it's good to go.
