Default How to change cabin filter and where is it?

I am hoping someone has pictures and a how to do it yourself instructions on changing the cabin air filter. The dealer wanted to charge me $75 (w/filter) to change it at my last oil change. I think that ridiculous when I could just DIY for free. I bought the filter but have no clue where it is or how to get to it. Any help would be appreciated.

Note** I am not talking about the air intake filter for engine** But the air filter that filters the air going into the cabin for AC/heat.

Cabin filter is in the Passenger side firewall, look under the hood and lift the plastic cover near the windshiled wiper and --Boo-Ya! There it is, not sure if there is one on the drivers side or not. $75.00 crazy right!

Just the one, passenger side, like he said.

$75 for what??? A gold lined filter?
i paid $21 at Germanpartsonline.com.

I am a total girl when it comes to working on cars and even i did that one by myself.

Sadly I did search for it. For at least 10 minutes and couldn't figure it out. I guess I'm afraid to pull up the plastic piece. I will play with it this weekend and hopefully figure it out. Thank you for your input. And I'm sure it was gold lined and scented with lavender to calm me during my rush hour in downtown chicago.

I found it and replaced it. It was gross (practically black). It was difficult to maneuver out and even more difficult to maneuver back in. Luckily I had an oil change the same day I installed it and they tweeked it in the correct spot. Thanks for your help.
