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.

Reassemble!!!

Is a cabin filter same as air filter on1997 mercury sable


The cabin filter is not the same filter as the air filter. The cabin filter is for the heating and air conditioner inside the car. The air filter is for the engine.

I assume you mean the cabin air filter. The engine air filter is easy, assuming you've changed one on any other car before (hint: it's a box with some clips on the right side). The cabin air filter is a bit more involved, see below.

AIR FILTER
DESCRIPTION

A dust and odor air filter is standard equipment on
models equipped with the three zone temperature
control systems. The filter element is the
same size as the front air conditioner evaporator to
ensure ample filtering capacity. A removable door on
the bottom of the front HVAC housing below the
glove box provides easy access to the filter element
for replacement. The filter should be checked and
replaced at least once every 24,000 km (15,000 miles)
and checked if heater-A/C system performance seems
lower than expected.
REMOVAL
(1) Locate the air filter door on the bottom of the
lower HVAC housing just outboard of the passenger
side of the instrument panel center stack.
(2) Slide the air filter door latch toward the rear of
the vehicle until it engages the opened stop on the
door.
(3) Pull the air filter door straight downward to
disengage it from the air filter opening of the lower
HVAC housing.
(4) Use your fingers to reach through the air filter
opening of the lower HVAC housing far enough to
grasp the air filter.
(5) Pull the air filter straight down and out of the
HVAC housing.
INSTALLATION
(1) Note the “Airflow” directional arrow imprinted
on the foam seal around the frame of the air filter.
This arrow should always be oriented towards the
center of the vehicle.
(2) With the air filter “Airflow” arrow properly oriented,
carefully slide the filter fully upward into the
HVAC housing through the air filter opening.
(3) With the latch still positioned against its
opened stop, reinstall the air filter door onto the
lower HVAC housing air filter opening.
(4) Slide the air filter door latch toward the front
of the vehicle until it hits the closed stop on the door.

Good luck

Tranny Filter


A lot of auto parts come in the form of a filter which is designed to remove impurities and foreign objects from a stream of gas or liquid. A typical car employs an oil filter, a transmission filter, a fuel filter, and an air filter. However, there is yet another type of filter which is least common to car owners. The cabin air filter, also referred to as the passenger compartment filter, the pollen filter, the dust filter, or the interior ventilation filter is inherent in vehicles manufactured in the 80�s. More and more vehicles are now equipped with cabin air filters, but what exactly is a cabin air filter? The cabin air filter is tasked to eliminate almost all of the airborne elements that come with the air that enters the passenger compartment. It is guaranteed to enhance the quality of the air that goes around the passenger�s area. The cabin air filter is attached under the dashboard, behind the glove compartment or in the engine chamber. Your factory cabin air filter may be worn and torn with use and time, which is why an aftermarket Chevymag-glass_10x10.gif cabin air filter replacement is manufactured. The Chevy cabin air filter replacement is designed to ideally replace your factory cabin air filter which is created to top the performance of your old one. The Chevy cabin air filter replacement is ideal to use because it helps purify the air and remove particles that might cause the passengers allergic reactions. It is highly beneficial not only to the car occupants, but also of the car driver so that he will not get distracted from controlling the maneuvers of the vehicle operation.

Its time to replace my air filter.


Inspect/Replace As a filter gets dirty, the amount of air that can flow through it is reduced. This is not a problem until less air than the engine needs gets through the filter. Without the proper amount of air, the engine will not be able to produce the power it should, nor will it be as fuel efficient as it should be.
Included in the preventative maintenance plan for all vehicles is the periodic replacement of the air filter. This mileage or time interval is based on normal vehicle operation. If the vehicle is used or has been used in heavy dust, the life of the filter is shorter.
Always use a replacement filter that is the same size and shape as the original.
The shape and size of the air filter element depends on its housing; the filter must be the correct size for the housing or dirt will be drawn into the engine. On today's engines, air filters are either flat or round.
fr_12.06.3184.gif Typical flat air filter element. f12-07.gif Typical round air filter for a late-model vehicle. Courtesy of Ford Motor Company. When replacing the filter element, carefully remove all dirt from inside of the housing. Large pieces of dirt and stones may accumulate there. It would be disastrous if that dirt got into the cylinders. Also make sure the air cleaner housing is properly aligned and closed around the filter to ensure good airflow of clean air.

Difference between an Air Filter and Air Conditioning filter


The air conditioning filter that your manual speaks of is known as a ''cabin filter'', it is much differant then your engine air filter. It filters the incoming air into your vehicles interior. So if someone has told you to replace your ''air filter'' they are more then likely speaking of your ''engine'' air fitler. You should check your engine air filter every oil change. If it shows signs of dirt, then replace it. Hope this helps =)
