I must be missing something but I cannot figure out how to get at the air filters on the air inlets for the air conditioners.
On my 1997 Dynasty the rear of each wooden frame around the air intake for the air conditioner there is a hinge. This would seem to indicate to me that those frames swing down to give you access to the filter for cleaning. I cannot figure out how to release the frame so I can get at the filter for cleaning.
I didn't have any trouble replacing the furnace but this has me stumped.

On my '98, the wooden frame swings down from the front (rear hinge). It takes a bit of a tug to get it to release.

There is indeed a hinge on one side and a catch or two on the other. Mine are the same as what are on my cabinets. You should run your fingers around the three sides to release the ceiling material which is probably stuck to the cover. Now grab the cover on the side opposite the hinge. Put your fingers on the top edge of that side in the middle. This is where the catch is. Just pull straight down with firm pressure. Your cover should swing down exposing your filter. Be sure to look up and inside. If it is dirty at all or any dust on the fins, get a vacuum and clean them too. I can send you a pic of mine open if you want.

As mentioned the ceiling ac. frame is a hinged door that will pull down and reveal the roof units air filter. If yours is like most the so called filter is nothing more than a single ply layer of plastic foam that you can see through. It is a lousey filter IMHO, and needs to be replaced rather than washed and put back in. I bought a new foam filter at Lowe's that is easily cut to fit and replaced the cheep orig. The new filter does a much better job and is easily washed when needed.

I have to thank everyone for the replies. I was somewhat nervous about just yanking on things having broken things in the past by not asking questions.
I have to go get some decent filter material the little thin thing that is in there really is useless.
