This isn't very useful without telling us where the cabin filter box located in the 4G Eclipse. Is it the same location for all engine/transmission combinations and body styles (coupes or convertibles)?

Are there any hints or special tools needed in order to change the filter?

Any pictures?

Yes it's in the rear on the left side in the trunk.. Just take off the plastic cover in your trunk you'll see it

Is it difficult to get the filter out? I know on some model cars these cabin filters are a real pain in the @$$ to get to.

Regarding the filter location, my $ is on the glove box...

There is a vent in the trunk area, but it's not our cabin filter. But the cabin filter is located by/under/behind the glove box.

Thanks for posting the youtube video link, but I can't believe that it requires taking out 6 total screws to get the cabin filter. Why? Was Mitsubishi afraid that the thing was going to get blown out or something? LOL.

Here is a follow up link. My '08 Spyder did apparently not come equipped with one and there was no door to remove for the filter. This link says in that case, my model (GS) does not have one. I have a sealed door with no access screws. 2009 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cabin Air Filter Location and Insta You will see this note by Rshoemaker in the comment section below the drawings and the experts reply.

Additionally, the glove compartment door did not just lift off the 3 hinges and needed a lot more work to remove! The inner cover also does not just come off with 4 screws, you had to remove screws and then pull/pop/force a much larger inner cover and partial outer cover to come off, thus exposing the inner part where a filter should be.

Much tougher than the video and totally fruitless for me.

Here is another thread that shows photos of what a "sealed" opening like mine looks like.

the same thing with the lower end Lancers...I had a 2003 lancer ES, which did not have a cabin air filter, and my 2006 Lancer ralliart had one. the air box is the same though, and the slot for the cabin air filter is there, but you have to cut out a plastic panel, which is too easy, caus ethe lines are already there...even the screw holes are there, you just need the screws.
