    Toyota here charges like $65 to change it. It's a lot cheaper to get the filter, or wash the old one, or make your own and install it yourself. Great video.

    2006 - 2012 Tacoma factory part # for the cabin air filter is 87139-YZZ09.


    TYC brand, cabin air filter, part # CAF800038P for the 2006 to 2012 Tacoma is a very decent cabin air filter. Can be purchased at Amazon.com for $8.11.

    Yeah the TYC filters are great. Prices seems to fluctuate a lot. As Sherlock says, they're now $8.11 each. I bought back in May 2011 for $4.77 each.

    Ok... how about $4.03 each! Go to rockauto.com and once there, search parts for the 2008 Pontiac Vibe, heating and air conditioning, then cabin air filter and you will come to the TYC cabin air filter, Part # 800038P for $4.03 each plus shipping.

    I bought 6 of them from Logical-Source for $3.62 each plus shipping. They fit perfectly!!

    I just notices that they also sell new heater Blower Fan Assembly for $34.22.

    HERE IS THE LINK

    Cheers.

    Remembered that I was supposed to order some for my wife's Rav4. The shipping cost barely changed when I increased the number of filters from 1 to 4. Nice!!!

    so, I'm assuming the 05's didn't have this, since it says 2006 to 2011?

    Are there any choices on filter type like your home return air filter. I'd like to put one in that filters our everything! I work in a very industrial area, have dogs and have allergies. Thanks in advance.
