Post Cabin Air Filter

Just changed mine and it was rather disgusting. Have about 60,000 miles on my car. Those who haven't changed theirs may want to look at these pics

Its easy to get the old one out. It gets a little tricky getting the new one in cause it has to go through a curve to slide into place. If I remember correctly a new filter runs about $30 or $40 dollars. I have yet to change mine only cause all the auto part stores around here don't carry them.

Good post!
The entire process took about 5 minutes. Haynes repair manuals FTW. New filters are typically $15-$20.

Is it a purchase from the GM dealer only thing?

Are those part numbers for ALL cobalt models? Not sure if they would have changed it in some year/time frame

Did a parts search for SS/SC, SS/TC, and base models through advance auto parts and they all came out to be:

Purolator Part #C35676

So it seems they are universal. There are just different brands.

I though it was supposed to be every 12,000 unless you use the recirc feature all the time.
