Your truck is not equipped with cabin filters, they came later on in newer models.

Fuel filter for 2003 chevy 2500 location

Under the driver's side cabin door. Spray both ends of the filter with BREAK FREE, or similar product. Let the stuff soak in and work. That location of the filter is prone to catch road mud/etc and the bolts may be frozen.

How do you change the cabin filter in a 2003 jeep grand cherokee limited, V8 4.7 L

Your cabin filter is located beneath the cowl that is located under your passenger wiper arm. To get to your cabin filter, first you must remove your passenger wiper arm. Remove the wiper blade arm by pulling off the cap that is over the nut, and using a socket to remove the nut. Now pull up on your wiper arm, and allow it to pivot up wards. Push down at the arm, to force the female end off of the shaft of the wiper motor. It may help to have the hood open while removing the arm.
Once the passenger wiper arm is off, with the hood open, carefully begin removing the rubber seal from the plastic cowl. The seal becomes weaker as it ages, and can tear easily.
With the seal out of the way, you can begin to disassemble the plastic cowl. I believe comes off by pulling up/forward, carefully not to break the plastic clips underneath. Start from the outside, and work your way towards the center of the windshield. Now the cabin filter and housing can be removed from beneath the cowl. Reverse procedure to install.

Thanks for your answer, but I was asking about the cabin air filter not the engin air intake filter

The cabin air filter is usually located behind the glove box or at the base of the windshield in the cowl area over the HVAC inlet duct. The exact location can be found in the vehicle owner’s manual or a filter reference guide at the auto part store where you purchase the cabin air filter from.
On most Fords, the filter is located under the hood in the cowl area. On Chrysler models, it is located under the dash. On GM products, it might be under the hood (Impala, Lumina and Monte Carlo), under the dash (Avalanche, Silverado, Suburban and Tahoe) or behind the glove box (Venture). On Toyota, Lexus, Nissan and most Honda models, you’ll find the filter behind the glove box. There is no cabin air filter even listed for a 1998 Oldsmobile Regency.

On vehicles where the cabin air filter is mounted under the cowl at the base of the windshield, some disassembly may be required to replace the filter. This may involve removing a plastic cowl cover. The area around the filter usually collects debris, so this area should be cleaned to remove any leaves, bugs or other debris before the old filter is pulled out. This will prevent any contaminants from falling into the HVAC inlet duct.

On vehicles where the filter is located behind the glove box, the glove box may have to be removed to replace the filter. On others, the filter can be accessed from under the dash and pulled out of a slot in the HVAC unit.

Most cabin air filters are flat-panel filters, but some have unusual shapes, so they will fit the HVAC inlet duct. Some filters also come in two sections to make replacement easier.

Trying to locate cabin air filter in 2003

The 2002/2003 Silverado was a change over year for Cabin Air filters. I know with the Chevy Avalanche the 03's did not have them and 02's did. The dash/center console changed with the 03's, and I believe it was done away with in that change over.... Still shows up on catalog, but the 03 has no Cabin Filter.

Good luck, and Merry Christmas

Where is the cabin filter located

The cabin air filter is located directly underneath the cowling at the base of the windshield on the passenger side of the car.
To access the cabin air filter, you will need to remove the cowling. First, open and lift the hood. Second, locate two plastic pins securing the plastic cowling at the base of the front windshield, on the passenger side. One is located under the wiper blade, near its base. Use a small screwdriver or similar tool to carefully lift/pop up two plastic pins securing the cowling, taking care not to damage the plastic pins. (You want to lift the pins, and not the anchors that look like washers beneath the heads of the pins. Carefully pull the plastic pins and their plastic anchors (once you pull the pin up, you can safely remove the anchor). Take caution not to damage the pins and anchors as you will need them to rescure the cowling when you are finished replacing the cabin air filter.
Before you remove the cowling, carefully pull back the rubber gasket and windshield washer fluid tubing at the base of the cowling. You can now safely remove the cowling, and you will see the cabin air filter below.
Remove the old cabin air filter and replace it with a new filter.
Reverse this process to reinstall the cowling, gasket, and pins once you have replaced the filter.

Where and how to change cabin filter chevy equinox

Hiya...the cabin air filter is located below the front passenger/windshield area.
It's only accessible by standing outside the Equinox with the hood open.
Here's how to do it...(before you pop open the hood)

1) Stand outside at the front-right door area.
2) Just below the front windshield area, pull up a few small black plastic clips that's on the black windshield wiper cowl area- a small flat screwdriver or a special clip-remover tool is handy.
3) Raise the hood up.
4) There may be a triangular-shaped hard foam sound damper at the left side nearby the hood hinge...pull it off if it allow you to work around it with ease.
5) Continue to find a few black plastic clips around the black windshield wiper cowl area.
6) Gently pull up the black windshield wiper cowl cover with care not to bend it too hard during removal.
7) You should see the cabin air filter inside that's held in place by a black rectangular box inside.
8) There's 2 black tabs that holds the cabin air filter in place.
9) Insert your finger or tool to pry the cabin air filter away from the tabs.
10) Remove old cabin air filter.

Remember to reinstall the clip parts back into place when you're finished.
