has anybody tried to change or even find a cabin air filter in the 6th Generation Toyota Celica?Mine is the 1.8 95 one if that makes a difference.

Thanks in advance

There isn't one. Cabin air filters didn't start becoming commonplace until the 2000s

Thanks for the ups man.Just realised that myself after screwing everything out in the glove box.Can't wait for summer to come , because the weather here in winter is very very annoying and hard drive wise.Especially when the windows get all clouded up.

Why do they get foggy? What is your HVAC set at?

If you've got it on recirc, they'll fog up but if you switch it to fresh air, they usually won't.

Um... it might have a cabin filter. It's just in North America that they didn't have them till after 2000.

If you do, it would probably be behind the glovebox.

At least it was an option, but if you looked and it didn't have one, then no, probably not. Otherwise, call up your local toyota dealer with the vin and they should be able to tell you if it did, or did not, have a cabin filter.

Thanks for the concern guys , but I'm sure there is no cabin filter in my Toyota.Checked everything behind the glove box and realised that for sure.

As for the Hvac . mine is set to fresh air but it's still not functioning properly , imo.I have a feeling that the humidity in the car itself might be too high and that's why when it gets warm in the car all the windows fog up.I think there might be a place where the water might leek in and steam when the tempeture rises up.I'm not sure tho'.Still doing much research on this matter.

If you crack the windows open just a tad, it really helps clear up foggy windows.

You might be having AC problems. When you set the vents to defrost the AC should engage and dehumidify the air in the car. Sounds like that isn't happening.

I'd make sure you don't have a tiny leak in the heater core either. It's not horrible to replace but not something you don't want to do more than once.

Said the guy who's done it what twice?

I haven't done it twice.

Nyx has done it twice. And she's not going to do it again... lmao

Ahh ok. I wouldn't want to do it either

I think it's getting better.Just checked that some vent under the wheel was disconected from the other part of the vent which simply means that the heat the AC was producing was going somewhere else but the cabin.Now it's getting warm very quick when it used to take atleast 20 minutes to feel warm while driving.The windows don't tend to fog up aswell as they did before.I think it means problem solved for me.Thanks for the help guys

Awesome, glad it was all squared away.
