Cabin air filter

Finally got around to changing out my cabin air filter today. Had a replacement floating around in the trunk for about month before I remembered it was there.

Quick and easy job, took about five minutes. The old one was pretty nasty and had a surprising amount of what appeared to be cat hair in it. Didn't see any evidence of critters (past or present) in the airbox, but still thought it was odd.

Yes, very easy to change. I replace mine every 20K miles. Matter of fact time to put in my new one that I have on the shelf.

Does anyone know if there is a reusable/rewashable cabin air filter available? I've been trying to find one.

New ones are fairly cheap and easier to replace than to reuse an old one.

Yes, I know it's easy I've done I've changed it before, but I was wondering if there is a reusable filter you can buy so you don't have to keep buying new ones.

You can buy in multi packs from Amozon for cheap, same filter as dealer. I change mine in the spring every year.

I don't think there is a reusable filter, but you can go to Autozone and buy a bunch of them for $11 each. I change mine once a year, but I don't live in a dusty area. I think changing it any more than that in a normal environment is a waste.

K&N has started to make them.
I'm sure they'll add HP.

They might be making washable/reusable filters, however they do not list any for the Camaro at this time.

That's for the hair-dryer mod, I suppose. My wife will be pleased!

Yah, I see that they have the option to fill out a form to special order/make a part, so maybe they can make one?
