By the way, these are terribly important because when you are taking air into the vehicle from the outside they collect everything just like your air filter does on your engine. Mind was extremely dirty after 20,000 plus miles.

I just this minute changed mine in my 2011 Toyota Corolla S model. They are $20 each at Wal-Mart. They aren't that hard to change. Push both sides of the glove box inwards and allow it to drop down. There is a rear door that snaps out behind the glove box and the filter is inside. By the way, the dealer charges $65 to do this 5 minute job.
