Question about 1998 GMC Sierra
How do you replace the wire mesh cabin air filter in a 1998 GMC Sierra / K1500? I have removed the plastic tray under the glovebox, but there is a secondary black plastic box that I can not seem to gain access to. I am guessing the filter is inside this secondary box. Any suggestions?

Your cabin air filter is behind the driverside carpet. pull out your floormat, pull back the carpet. now way back behind the center console theres a white plastic door. just squeeze the clips in and pull that out. now theres two cabin air filters. just pull them out with the tab. as for the replacement filters, aftermarket ones will not fit quite right and will usually leave gaps inside the airbox. oem will fit like its supposed to. I'll leave the decision up to you. youll save about 20 bucks getting an aftermarket one.

just stick your head up under the passenger side. there is a small panel with a few screws in it, and it drops strait down. nothing involved in the glovebox at all

Your blower moter is under your glovebox and very easy to replace.I dont think thats your ploblem.I would pull off the dash.It will snap right off without breaking anything.Then pull out the part that holds the selector switch for the fan speed.Then you unplug that switch.Clean the copper contacts.Plug it back in.If everything works again like it should and did in my truck then it is either that switch that is bad or the wiring harness.I would replace that switch.

The cabin filter is located above passengers feet,There is a large black plastic cover that needs to be removed and then you will see a narrow plastic cover that snaps in to place.Pull that cover out of your way and they will be right there,there is two of them replace both and be ready for dust and dirt on your floor board.worth doing makes huge difference
