Have you checked ADVANCED AUTO, cabin filters are 13 bucks.
I need to check for engine air filter to see if they carry them, does anyone know?
Autozone carries the Bosch filter for $19 and Puralator has a replacement for $12.50. It's the same filter as the Camry.
I paid $12 from Advance like a couple others mentioned. No reason to pay $25 for an OEM cabin filter.
I guess it is time for me to get a new one too and start the killing. I heard some noise every time I turned on my AC, it sounded like a leaf in the vent so I took off the glove compartment to find this little surprise.
Not Sure if it is from a chipmunk(Ground Squirrel), pack rat, or just a mouse, I have had problems in the past with rats making nest out of the hood insulation in my 95 neon and 96 dodge ram.
pepboys carries them from 17ish... they are purolator

Just bought Micro-Guard Filter from O'Reillys of Nashville for $10.50. Also purchased the better built WIX with charcoal filtration for $14. Will test for noticeable difference.

Can anyone tell me where the cabin air filter is on an 05 Tundra? Is it behind the glovebox like on the 07/08 models? I just bought mine with 92K miles and I'm trying to get everything up to specs so I'll know how/when to do all the maintenance going forward. Thanks!
Does a charcoal cabin air filter last longer or just keeps out more?
I searched on line and they exist at different sellers.
Do the charcoal filters last longer or keep out more particulate matter?
I think they are more for odor elimination than anything else

Bought the WIX CHARCOAL filter from OREILY'S for 14 bucks.
It is less flimsy then the one from ADVANCED AUTO for 2 dollars more FOR THE WIX.
Had charcoal before in other car and it does eliminate odors better.
It does have that foam on ends for better seal, just a better product IMO for a little more.

You might trying this to save some $$$. I buy a large 3M house filter and cut it up into pieces and place those in the plastic frame of the existing. My Sienna's filter has some ribs to support the filter. I remove the old filter material and place in the 3M filter I've cut to size and secure it to the frame with a few small pieces of duct tape. You get better filtration than the OEM for 1/4th the cost.
