You actually do not need pictures to install a new cabin filter into the 2012 Acura TL. You just pull out the glove box divider ( the shelf in the glove box), and the filter presents itself for removal. I was quoted a price of $90 to have the dealer do the job - I bought an OEM filter from a Boston dealer (Bernardi ACURA Parts) for $26.63 and installed it in about five minutes. The hardest part of the job was emptying the glove box. Thank you slickjem.

I generally use OEM parts for everything but not in this case. The Acura/Honda cabin filter is toooooo expensive ($38+ list, $26+ via online). My recommendation is Purolator for about half the price at local stores. But the cabin filter is not a critical item so I assume any brand will do.
