Under the dash "behind" the utility box/glove compartment.

The OEM Toyota brand replacement filter comes with fairly clear
instructions on how to do this yourself. If it's like the 03, it will
take 10 minutes, including the time to read the instructions, find a
screwdriver and then swap it out.

You could try to find an aftermarket, but they aren't plentiful, and at
least for me it was only about four dollars cheaper. The real drawback
was, however, was the aftermarket I bought, I don't remember the brand,
Bosch maybe?? didn't really "fit" Oh, it did sort of, but it took a
lot of fussing and you don't sound as if you are that "up" on working
on cars..

The Toyota just drop in with ease.

It's in the upper area of the glove box.

Open the glove box and remove the phillip's screw @ the hinge point on the
sides of the box & remove it by pushing in each side of the box to
disconnect the "claws" that hold it when it's in the open position. You
will then be able to get to the filter case in the upper part to the
opening.

I had just replaced the carbin filter on my (03 LE) 2
weeks ago. I called up 3 dealers, each quoted me a
different price ($31.88, $28.00, $38.00). I went to a
local Advance AutoParts store and got the filter by
Purolator for $19.28. The filter comes with clear
instructions (with picture illustrations). It was a
perfect fit. It took me 2 minutes to read the
instructions, and another 3 minutes to replace the filter.

Yes,you may replace it your-self.
Should be behind the Glove compartment.
Drop the glove box and there you are.
Napa sells them.Some have instructions.
Some guys go to Home-Depot and purchase a furnace filter and cut it to
fit the Camry.Good Luck......
