    I removed the filter, had a bunch of debris so I needed to vacuum a bit. Before installing the new one I noticed a piece of rubber gasket laying on top of the fan about 12"L x 3/4"W x 3/16"T? something extra Toyota left in the ventilation or? or is it for the cabin filter? Thanks!

    It is for the cabin air filter. It improves the seal and forces any air to go through the filter and not around it. If there was a lot of debris you might want to consider replacing it. If you dont want to buy one there is a thread in the Forum to make your own.

    I don't remember right off.. I bought it at the stealership when I was picking up parts for 30K service. Plugs, oil filter, air filter, cabin filter was just under a $100 with tax.
