Default air filtration system

Last time I took my car in for an oil change the mechanic mentioned
checking the filter for the climate system. At a cost of $70+ I said
I'll check it on my own and was told it is behind the glove box. I
have no idea how/where to find it.

Any help along with thoughts/suggestions is appreciated.

Remove the glove box and you'll see a couple little filters which can be
removed and replaced. You can get replacements at any auto parts
store...AutoZone...O'Reilly's...etc.

Giving your make, model, year, engine and trim level would be a start.

Many models do in fact require removal of the glove box to get at the cabin
filter. This takes some time to do, and is fiddly, hence the $70 charge.

See this FAQ page:

See page 33 of the PDF I referenced on the Bosch site. You car takes Bosch
part number P3875.

It's very odd that your Owner's Manual does not mention cabin filter
installation at all...
