I havent tried yet but if i remove the fan will that give me access to get a hand on the inside to help slide this filter in? Also thanks for mentioning pushing the tabs on the filter housing cover I did not know this and was also frustrated because it will fall off or become loose all the time. So maybe tomorrow i will try getting that cover on! Please if anyone can give me a hint on getting that filter in! I have tried three times and about four hours trying to get one in!
Sorry I couldn't get back to you sooner; I've been experiencing internet issues here.

If you remove the fan which takes less then a minute to remove, you have access to filter from the fan opening. Bare in mind that since the dash is in the way, you do have to bend the filter to get it in.
