I'm about to change mine, it's making a funny noise again and gets dirty every **** month. I have no idea how that's even possible.
Please take notes and pics for our reference if possible;)
Are you using the OEM filter? Mine works fine, no noise but smells a bit, LOL.

Reading this thread from the beginning is a pretty good start. It contains instructions of what must be done (which is all anyone had until THE PICTURES in Post 14). Actually attempting to do the job and taking the time to look things over might help the previous 20 posts make a trifle more sense. Sooner or later someone will make a video. Hang in there.

Unbelievable!
After watching this, I think there’s a very good possibility that this annual maintenance pollen filter changeout is billed to JLR and never done.
When the engineer finished designing this system, he was told, “good work. Now go and work on the ICTP entertainment system”.?

WTF! Having to take that much apart just to change a cabin filter is crazy. It's no wonder there are so many creaks, lost screws and rubbing noises after routine service - so dumb.

Mine is due for its 3 year annual service later this month and I may just ask the service department to remove and not replace the filter as I also don't believe mine has been changed during any previous service. I'd rather have direct air flow into the cabin than air being routed through an air filter that has a multi year build up of pollen, mold, mildew, and what have you growing on it. That filter change ordeal should be used as a training video on how not to design a system that requires relatively frequent access.

I couldn't even watch all of it, just too painful. What a pitiful sad design.....

Mine kept getting dirty from exhaust fumes. The filter collects a variety of things, a hyper sensitive carbon filter among them. The fan would sound like a 737 until the filter was changed, 2- 3 months later it would come back. Took about a year to figure out the issue was where the car was parked.
It took about 2 hours to change each time. Only takes a few minutes on my wife's Nissan. Just a horrible design.

Adding some pics. Did both of my F-Paces today. First one took about 1.5 hours. 2nd took 30 min.
I used to have a Daewoo Leganza and the cabin air filter took less than a minute. On the engine side of the firewall there was a door with a thumbscrew. Open the door, pull & replace filter and tighten the screw. Whey does Jaguar design something that could take a master tech!?

Did my mom’s Toyota awhile back. $12 from Amazon and 5 minutes.

great stuff. I have a 2017 First Edition and it is even more difficult to change the cabin filter because the glove box won’t come out based on the tips posted due to the cooling features.

I am a newbie here. Send me instructions on how to upload pics from an Apple phone ss I have more tips to add.

"Send me some instructions"?
hope the previously posted pictures plus my pictures will help.

I will try to write at a high-level:

Job: need to remove your right side lower dash/glovebox to get to the cabin filter door.

Recommendation: Buy a good high quality filter as it takes too much work to change is sooner than required.

Hint: Good time to run your hardwire for your dashcam / Radar / etc along with this new ask.

High level steps fo based on my experience from my First Edition....not sure if other trim models have the cooling air duct attached to the glove box:

Easier to follow the pictures previously posted by the other member.

written steps:
Remove lower right cover trip (3 push clips) and unplug light.
Remove door sill by lifting up and save the clips.
Loosen tight door seal trim by kick panel.
Remove right kick panel (fuse door) with 1x T30.
Remove the lower glovebox pivot pins.
Remove the outer side dashtrip (90degtee angle outside the dash vent) by light prying.
Remove any T30 screws you see that are holding the glovebox trims.
After the T30 screws (both black and silver ones) are removed, there is one non-screw anchor by where my flathead screw driver was pointing.
Then start slowly pulling the glovebox including the trim behind it loose as 1 large trim. The glove box itself does not need to be separated.
I wasn’t able to completely get the larger glovebox trim out so I just made enough room to get to the filter door.
Pop that cover out.
Remove the filter tray out as far out as possible to re&re the filter - very tight!!
Then reverse the steps to put everything back

Post questions as you go...

Good luck.

Great job, Pat! Definitely an improvement over my chicken scratch.
