Default A/C Cabin filter

Hi folks,
I have 2 questions;

1- How often should the A/C Cabin filter replaced?
2- Where is the filter located and how Do I repalce it?

Thanks a lot,
A.

It is located at the very top of the engine. While looking at the engine with the hood up it is closest to the windshield in the direct middle. It is an a oval-esque looking rectangle, Not sure how often but I check mine every so often and if I can just clean it. I'd just replace it when its dirty enough, depends on the conditions you are in.

Easilly accessible yes, just remove the hold down screws and it pops right up. You should change it every 20k or so, if you don't you can get an old man musty smell which is very nasty.
