How to Change Cabin Air Filter &c clear A/C drain?

Can I get some pointers to a page or short instrucitons on changing the cabin air filter? I also need to know how to clean the A/C drain... I am getting a musty smell and I want to make sure it's draining before I use a cleaner in the ducts & evaporator.

Thanks,

There is no in cabin filter in a 4th gen.
The A/C drain tube can be accessed down in the passenger leg area, twards the center. Not much room down there, might be better off blowing up through it from under the car. Compressed air is your friend.

If the plenum is really dirty you may have to open it up and clean it out manually.

Yes, I am also having an A/C problem with my car. It seems that it blows out hot air for a while before it begins to blow out cold air and when it does, it is barely cold. Anyone know what I should replace? Air filter???

Passenger side. From inside the car, passenger foot area, look up at the plenum, you can see the drain tube from the evaporator area that goes through the fire wall.

From under the car you can see the tube hanging down from the fire wall, passenger side right above the sub frame. Easily accessed when the car is up on a lift.
