Refreshed for everyone's attention....


Hi All,
    Just an update on the change of air con filters in Latio / Slyphy rides. Thanks to Lord Draco for unlocking this thread and also to Aerosignal for starting this thread.
I would like to clarify some steps on this changing of Latio Air Con filters. The steps shown by Bro Aerosignal is only applicable to the two pcs design. I believe that was due to in the market a few years ago, air con filters sellers like me have not appear yet, which is why an alternative aftermarket air con filters (esp the two pcs design) came into the picture.
However, there are alot of fresh supplies of OEM grade and Design air con filters that was meant for LAtio  / Slyphy, in which I feel that there would be a need to update this Thread.
   Below are the correct method of changing the air con filter for Latio, provided that you are using the OEM design.

Note : Thanks to bro Aerosignal and very sorry as I need to use some of your pictures.

Remove your glove box. Do this by removing the 4 top screws inside, close the door and remove the 3 bottom screws. You can keep the door closed and pull the whole glove box out.

If during removal or installation, your screws feel tight as you are removing them, support the glove box slightly. This will take the load off the screws so they will not rub against the plastic as you remove the screws.

Remember: "WATCH YOUR WIRES" for those with glove box lights!!!!




Step 2.
Remove bracket. Refer to picture for location of screws.



Step 3.
Remove filter. Filter location is shown in picture. The cover is what the support from step 2 is screwed onto.

I had to push the passenger seat all the way to the back and crawl inverted so that I can get a look at the cover. You may have to do that the first time too.

To remove the cover, pull the tab out with some force. This will pull the top portion of the cover. pull up and out to remove the bottom tab.

You have to pull with some force because the filter is larger than the hole.







Step 4

This is how the stock air con filter looks like....


Take the OEM design filter....
Do the squeezing as shown in the picture below, then insert in the air con filter this way into the air con slot....





Then repeat Step 3 (screw back the filter bracket, put back the glove box), step 2 (insert back the glove compartment lighting for premium models and screw back the holes)


This is the end. This step is applicable for OEM grade air con filters. Where Latio and Slyphy models are concerned, it is very highly recommended to get back the stock design (integrated filters with plastic frame) as this will ensure the filters are a plug and play item (no modifications needed)....

Please contact me at 9797 7936 if there are any doubts on this... I will be glad to show you the steps...

Thank you.

Hi Bro,
     Very sorry for the late reply as I have not been logging in a long time into this forum.
With regards to your question, can you remove the holder that is secured by 2 screws?
if yes, put ur hand to feel whether there is a hole where the ac filter is supposed to be or whether there is a fin like plastic

there are only 2 possibilities.

1) if there is a fin like plastic, that is the ac filter (refer to my earlier post and pic to see how the ac filter looks like, the fin like protruding plastic is part of the holder.).

2) your hole is not broken, meaning there is no ac filter.

If there is no ac filter, u got another two alternatives.

one is to break the hole, using a cutter, to cut out the plastic and make a hole.

one is to just ignore as I understand, alot of car models in msia does not have ac filter....

I hope this clarifies your doubts.

you can call me at 9797 7936...

Thanks,
