Default Cabin Air Filter 2002 Jetta TDI

Hi,
In the how to section, I saw that there was a diagram with pics on how to change the cabin air filter on the older jetta and the new beetle. Is the cabin air filter in my car located in the same area? Thanks, and I look forward to your responses, as I'd like to replace this myself.

Sincerely,

Pretty sure it's on the passenger side by the firewall. PITA to get out unless you have small fingers and hands.

Hello,
Can anyone else verify this? Thanks! I'm sure it would save me a lot to do it myself.

Sincerely,

I kinda think it's changed from the engine compartment by taking off the rain shield under the passenger wiper. At least that's what I remember doing in our 2000 Jetta.
