Regardless of what dealer tells you, there is no such thing as lifetime fluid. Even the best fluids such as synthetics should be changed. Change intervals should be regarded as false as well...If you changed all the fluids once a week your vehicle would last far longer than it does...Obviously this would take up a lot of time and $, but reasonably engine oil should be changed at at least 4,000miles, trans fluid every 25-30K. Otherwise the oil begins to chemically change loosing it's ability to do it's job and also carries fine contaminants with it that begin to wear components.

cabin air filter is in the airbox behind the glove compartment,
unclip the glovebox, look behind it for a small access door, undo the latches, and voila! theres your cabin air filter! (if equipped, some model equinoxes dont have it!)

SOURCE: Trans-axle fluid leak
checking the transmission fluid involves lifting the vehicle and removing a plug on the transmission, it is quite difficult and messy if you don't have access to a lift, the vehicle has to be level and at operating temperature in park, there is a small plug on the side of the transmission near the passenger axle shaft. remove the plug slowly, i believe it is an 11mm bolt, if fluid drips out, the level is ok, if no fluid comes out, there is a small plastic screw on cap on top of the transmission itself on the driverside near the oil filter cap, add fluid slowly untill fluid starts to drip out of the plug hole, once the fluid starts to drip, insert the plug and tighten, don't overtighten, just snug it up.!!!make sure you use the right fluid, this is important!!! i believe your fluid is dextron 6, double check in your owners manual, the use of any other fluid will cause damage!!! also, do not remove the small plug on the front of the transmission, that is the pressure plug, all the fluid will shoot out with force if that plug is removed!!!

Hello and Welcome to Fixya,
Very sorry Sir, as far as I know. The Dip stick is not included in this model. The transmission fluid must be checked only by the professionals at the dealership's place using special tools for the job (so that the unit shouldn't be over runned by the user and for long life safety of the engine). You should contact the dealer near your place for the completion of the job!
Keep using Fixya
