    Not sure if you've got the EURO Manual or a specific UK version - this is the EURO:

    TOYOTA also advise some more information:

    It's the one on the Driver's Side of the front of the back seat - check that you haven't got something on the floor or hanging over the edge of the seat (like a dog blanket, children's schoolbags?) which are covering it. There's another in the middle - which seems not to be so critical, but I keep it uncovered too.

    They only suggest the corner one is the one to watch and there's a filter behind the grille. I got mine off easily to check, with a bit of fiddling but the filter was like new.

    Found this also in Owner's Manual:

    I would take a crack at cleaning the filter yourself.

    Good news - I'd guess you shouldn't see that again. How many miles have you done?

    It could be worth a diary entry to do it again - maybe twice as often. My suspicion it will run more efficiently if the filter is clean.

    I checked mine at about 30,000km and it was clean as the proverbial whistle. But then, my dogs are non-shedding (and only occasionally in as passengers); I rarely have passengers in the car (hopefully non-shedding too), always have A/C on.

    If the message doesn't go away, unhook the 12 volt battery for a few minutes.

    I think cleaning the filter should have done it - better than disconnecting the 12 volt if not necessary.
