    Cannot figure out where the cabin air filter is located. A/C is not blowing very hard - could the filter be plugged up?

Instructions: (Click images to Enlarge)
  1. Stop the windshield wipers when they are in the up position. Since the filter will be placed on the passenger side, this will make it easier to access the panel.
  2. In the center of the windshield, there is a small plastic circle piece. Pry it off with the flathead screwdriver, and set it aside in a safe place. Remove the screw you have uncovered. (See picture) This will make it easier to remove the panel you are about to remove.
  3. There are 3 plastic locking clips holding the cover down. Use your flathead screwdriver to GENTLY pry them up. Once they are up, give the whole piece a little tug up and to the left. You will see the slot where the filter goes.
    • BE CAREFUL!!!! Everything is made of plastic, and everything can break. Take your time, and don't get frustrated.
  4. In this slot, there is an eggcrate style plastic piece retaining the space where your filter is about to be placed. Pull up and out on it to remove it. You will not need this piece, so you can discard it, or keep it in a safe place.
  5. Remove your filter from the box.
    • Note: which side is to be placed "up".
  6. Slide the filter into the casing, ensuring a snug fit.
  7. Replace everything you removed by reversing the steps above.
  8. Go in the car, and blast the vent, to remove any dust, etc. that may have been in the vents.
  9. Enjoy your clean air! You will notice that your interior will stay cleaner for longer periods of time, and you can breathe easier!!

How do i change the cabin air filter in my 2003 ford expidition


Locate the cabin air filter container on your Ford Expedition. If you are standing in front of the vehicle, looking at the engine, it will be on the back, left side of the engine, next to the heater fan. You will see a black cover over the top of the container. The air filter is approximately 6" x 9" and about 2" deep. Look for a black casing that will be about 10" across and 8" high. The box sits vertically against the firewall of the vehicle.
Step 2
Remove the cover of the cabin air filter by lightly prying on it with a screwdriver. The cover is secured with plastic tabs that pop off quite often. If this happens, you can buy replacements at your local automotive store.
Step 3
Remove the cabin air filter, and vacuum out the container to remove any dust or debris. Wipe it down with a clean damp cloth and let the inside of the container dry before inserting new filter.
Step 4
Place new cabin air filter in container and secure the cover, replacing tabs if needed. Remove tools from engine compartment and close hood.
Step 5
You are now able to enjoy driving with clean air flowing through the inside of your car.

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

How do you replace a Cabin Air Filter and air filter for vented front seats?


The seat filters are located underneath each seat, driver and passenger. Slide seat(s) all way forward. From the rear reach underneath and feel for a small square filter, about 2x3in. Grasp an edge and pull down , it will pop out. Replace same way. Good hunting finding replacements. Had to go to a dealer and order.
