$49 through the dealer, $35 at autozone, or $15. on e-bay... think I'll choose autozone next time. I got mine at the dealer & paid too much. Yes, the one I took out was ready for a change at 13,500 miles.

No problem. Fits right in. Looks identical to the factory one. Other than missing a part number, and where it was made. I am sure the one from autozone is similar. Just no overhead and stocking fees. I plan to change it again around another 20,000 miles. Will compare it then.

Replaced mine today with the part rtcat posted up. Mine actually didn't look too bad for going almost 2 years and 30k miles but for 15 bucks it was a cheap swap.

be careful folks. There are two styles of filters for our cars. One is a particulate filter and the other a ODOR and particulate filter. The later filter does have a darker look to it due to the charcoal activated granuals in the filter. To me the better filter is the Odor filter and I know for a fact that it works very well.

Thanks for the update, I was not aware that there were two. Good to know.

I'll try and get the specifics at work today. For most cars, if you ask there is a better quality Odor Filter that can be had. In many cases, it can be 2X in price. To me, living near some Dairy Farms, it is a real help to the nose! LOL!
