GM hasn't used any wing nuts on their air filter in cars since they switched to fuel injection. It's either going to be several clips or screws holding the air box together. Follow the air duct from throtle body towards air box. It's normally on drivers side. Should be a flat box with the air duct coming out of it.

How do you open the air filter container, when it looks sealed, i see no clamps or wing nuts, do i need to remove the top hose or something? also, the car will stall out when driving, i have had it to the...

It is a round filter in a canister. There is a tube that comes from the throttle body to the air filter housing. Loosen the clamp on the intake hose to the canister then pull the hose up inside you will see a nut or wing nut remove that then the lid comes up and remove the old filter. zdupo+7esmkf5debcbaaaawamqf1fqvk8glgiaaacabyauoqb4x0fcbaaaaaapqfxeqfg+grgiaaaaab6auiic4n0fcreaaaaapabxeqxf+wriigaaaab4aoiicor3fcrfaaaaapaaxeuufo8riisaaaaa4agiiygo3lcqfweaaadaaxaxuvc8ryauagaaaiahic6iohhfqvweaaaaaa9axerb8b6cuagaaaaahoc4iilifqvxeqaaaaa8wacava7iigaaaaaaamhbxaqaaaaaaaaziisaaaaaaaagg4ulkcgokcgokcgokcgokcjs8v8bd5bxe3kc3xcaaaaasuvork5cyiia

Where is fuel filter

The fuel filter on your 2003 Buick Century is located on the left side under the back dor and is up into the inside rocker panel. The filter is held in by a strap that has a 1/2 inch bolt and the filter itself requires a 13/16 wrencha dn a 5/8 line wrench when taking it apart. The line coming in from the trank side has the push on connector that you need to push it towards the filter body and then squeeze the two plastic wing to let it release the filter. The new filters now come with a new plastic wing so it yo really get fustrated with it you can force it and it should still be okay as the new one will work when you put it back on.

2000 Buick Century Custom 4dr sedan

The cabin air filter for your 2002 Buick Century is located under the cowl in the firewall between the engine compartment and the passenger side of the front seat. To change the filter:
1. Leave the wipers in up position.
2. Open the hood
3. Remove the weather stripping from passenger side of cowl
4. Unclip the window washer line (two or three places)
5. Remove the three fasteners with an ordinary screwdriver (one is easy, the other two were more difficult)
6. Take out the cowel cover
7. Remove old filter
8. Put in new filter
9. Replace cover, fasteners, washer line, and weather stripping.

Do it about every 20,000 km. I left mine for nearly 130,000 km and it was filthy dirty.
New filter costs about $12
