If the filter is dirty you will need to replace it with an OEM filter or after market air filter that can be purchase at any auto parts store such as Advanced Auto Parts, Discount Auto Parts, Pep Boys, or Napa Auto Parts. The Toyota genuine OEM part number is 17801-0H010, Purolator A35649, Fram CA10171 and K&N 33-2370. Before replacing the old air filter you may want to use a vacuum to clean out any debris or leaves that may be in the air filter housing while you have the cover off.
