None of the cobalts use a carbon activated filter. If they did they would be very expensive.

In the factory owners manual it is written to replace the filter every other oil change or 15,000 miles.

open the glovebox then you bend the stops back (bend the sides of the glovebox inwards towards the center of the glovebox so it will clear the dash) so it can hang by the hinge. Then you have access to the filter door

Mold on the evap...your filter won't do anything for that. Try an anti-fungal foam you can buy at a parts store. You spray it up through the evap drain on the passenger side firewall under the hood. It worked for me but get the good stuff and do a couple applications.

I work at a honda dealer, and today I did one in a cr-v, It was very hard to pull out and you could hear things dropping into the blower motor, turn out it was dog food, some type of rodent must have had a stash, Had to pull the blower motor to get all the food out of the cage
