Question about 2006 Chevrolet HHR
Garyhhr's solution will work, but steps 3 and 4 are not necessary. 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. Also I would disconnect the MAP sensor before attempting to pull the filter housing off. 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.

For my 2006 HHR (2.4L), you have to remove the air-intake/cleaner HOUSING first. This includes
1. There is a large (2.5" diameter) hose that is located at the front/center of the housing. Loosen large hose clamp from the hose that connects to the housing and pull hose off of HOUSING.
2. There is large diameter hose that is located on the right side (passenger side) of the housing that needs to be loosened, then removed.
3. Remove two 13mm nuts on the back of the housing that connects the housing to the engine.
4. Remove one little torx bolt on front/right side.
5. Unplug the electronics connector.
6. Now it's ready to come out!!
Now you have to disassemble the housing because the air filter is in there. This is simple.
1. Remove seven (7) torx screws and split the housing open ... remove the old filter with a new filter.
