when i went to jiffy lube to get the 3000mi synthetic change I saw them take out this mysterious filter from behind the glove box. I looked through the manual afterwards but it only mentioned it... not how to access it. I was wondering if anybody knew the way to drop the glove box down to get to it

Yeah that is the polem/cabin filter. By the way if you want to replace it it will cost you like 30+ dollars. I just change mine.

its a cabin filter. trust me, you dont need a new one unless air isnt coming out of the ac vents easily or if debris is coming out
no dude it gets seriously nasty if you dont change it in accordance to the book. I had one in my corolla when i changed it was nasty as hell after like 35000 miles.
