Default Where to find the air conditioning filter on a 1998 Camry?

The filter needs to be replaced. But I looked in the dashboardcabin where I
suspected it, but I couldn't find it.
Anyone knows where to find it?

Thnx ahead

Next time do a search. Been discussed to death here.

Your question is not making sense. I'm guessing you either mean:

1. You were unable to find the filter in the location specified by
this link:
http://www.micronair.us/assets/pdfs/118.pdf

or, 2. You want to know where to buy the filter? I'd start with the
Toyota dealer...

Ah, I understand now. You are trying to find something that does not
exist.

The air con filters apparently first appeared in the 2002 Camries. You
don't have a filter to change.

I'm sorry I'm writing in perfect english...

I don't wanna know where to buy the filter... that's not the problem...
I was indeed unable to find the filter in the location specified by the
provided link...
so does anyone have a clue where else to find it?

Ok.... that's a good reason for not being able to find it...
Thank you for your answer.. I did find out it wasn't there in the 1989
models, but I didn't see it was only after 2002 that it had the filter...

The Toyota dealer SOLD the filter and said it was too crowded now else he
would fit it in the car... so that's why I had to do it myself....
So I think I'll go back to the dealer

Thnx for the info

You're welcome.

That's strange... he sold you a filter, not asking you what year your
car was? Or he asked, and sold you the filter anyway?

Just curious, does your manual mention anything about an aircon filter?

Good luck...

I was just going to write back and say my parts house doesn't list a
cabin filter for the '98, so I was thinking that they don't have
one....and then I saw your answer, but then he posted back with 1989,
which even I know did not have cabin filters.....so I don't know what
year he's asking about....but doesn't matter if neither year has the
filter.

I bet the filters from 2002-up are all the same tho., which is why the
parts guy didn't ask for a year.....I still get ticked tho. $30+ for a
little piece of glorified paperboard.

I had filters made for my furnace at a local place called Clean Air that
specializes in filter manufacturing. They're made with an electrostatic
media plus a pre-filter so they filter and trap by static charge (by air
moving across media) plus I just wash them off, blow or vacuum dry and
reinstall. They weren't very expensive, appx what it cost for a years supply
of regular paper filters. You might be able to get something made for your
cabin filter and eliminate the expensive filters plus get better filtering.
