Did you know you have a cabin filter? Have you changed it?

Many people do not know thier Camaro has one. The passenger compartment air filter removes most of the pollen and dust from the air that enters the vehicle. The filter will need to be replaced periodically. Should be replaced every 12 months or Maint II service. Using the climate control system without an air filter installed is not recommended. Water or other debris could enter the system and result in leaks or noises. Always install a new filter when removing the old filter.

Here is how you change it out

Remove the passenger side wiper cowl (held in place by a few push retainers Item 1 retainers item 2)
Remove the passenger compartment filter door. (Thin door see picture below item 10)
Pull out the filter and install a new one (item 9)

All this takes about 5 minutes and will make the air coming through the vents a lot easier to breathe especially during allergy season.


These are available from us at the amazing price of 26.37.

To order simply give us a call, shoot us an email or here they are in our Camaro catalog http://store.gmpartshouse.com/partlo...egoryID=167685

I would get these trim removal tools like I have from Amazon or Crutchfield. Tool #2 from the right side will pop those pins off without any damage.

You're not kidding. Every time I turn around I find a use for them. I have two sets in case I brake one or mess one up! LOL.
