1) Remove the lower clamp from the front rubber hose (air horn)
2) Pull up on the entire housing (gently but firmly ... don't yank it) and disengage it from the engine
3) loosen and remove the clamp to the flexible air intake hose on the right side of the engine (at the air cleaner side ince the hose goes through the wheel house)
4) With the air cleaner housing removed from the engine compartment, turm the housing over and remove the seven screws holding the lower part of the housing to the upper.
5) Remove and replace the filter element
6) Re-assemble in reverse order

My 2006 hhr wants to die whenever I turn on heater

I am going to assume that you have the same problem when you turn on the AC as well? If so, you have a shorted blower motor. If you feel that you can replace this by yourself or with help from a friend, I recommend you do it because service shops will charge you an arm and a leg to do this "simple" replacement. More than likely your cabin are filters are clogged and your cabin air intake is not draining very well. Do it all at the same time or it will just come back to bite you.

2006 hhr 2.4 won't start after replacing both camshaft position sensors.

Did you remember to plug in the MAF sensor? Are you sure the air chamber is correctly installed on the throttle body?

How do I change the air filter on a 2006 Chevy HHR

It's inside of the plastic cover on top of the engine. You'll need to remove the assembly. First lift the rear to loosen it from the stud. Loosen the clamps to remove the ducts and pcv tube. Disconnect the electrical connector. Now you can tip the assembly over and remove the screws to separated the halves and replace the paper element.

Air filter on chevy hhr

The air filter is in the large plastic cover that covers the engine.
1. Remove MAP sensor connector ( slightly hidden under the front center edge of the housing. Wiggle slightly and pull straight out).
2, Loosen (but don't remove) the large hose clamps on the passenger side and center of the housing, It's a tight fit for the hands on the passenger side and the head of the clamp is facing away from you. The front center hose is stiff, but pliable, so take your time.
3. The air filter housing was designed as a snap in with rubber grommets. A firm steady pull with the front passenger side will show you how much effort it will take to pull it free. Do each of the remaining two separately. The housing will be free to remove from the vehicle.
4. On a clear area, turn the housing over and loosen the seven torx type screws (they will not come completely off, so as not to lose them). Pull the cover off. Remove the old filter and replace with your new one. Align the cover and snug the screws back in.
5. Reassembly requires lining up those rubber grommets to the mounting studs.... take your time.... all that is needed is a firm downward push to seat them.
6. Reattach the large hose clamps and remember to plug in the MAP sensor (you'll get an "check engine" light if you forget.

Hope this helps.
