Changing Air Cabin Filter by yourself

15563 Views 32 Replies 24 Participants Last post by  SteveEngineer
When replacing the cabin air filter behind the glove box by yourself, I've seen one video where the damper or shock absorber is removed by sliding it out to the left. Has anyone tried this? The other 2 videos show it being removed from the bottom of the glove box. Then they struggle getting it back in. Thanks

I just did this a couple of weeks ago. The damper pops out to the right. All you need is a screwdriver to undo (and redo) the lock that keeps the arm in place.

I just did the one in my wife's Buick a couple days ago, uses the same shock absorber. It's a simple plastic locking hook. Needs to be compressed a little to unhook and then snaps in relatively easy as long as the hole is squared up to the lock. If its like my wife's Buick, compressing the bottom of the lock is easier than the top.
You're absolutely right. It's the bottom half of the lock that has the hook part of the mechanism, if I remember correctly.
Wow! I didn’t know that upper part of it slides out so easily! I must try this next time. Still considering going this route for the speaker harness taps for future amp installation.

Thanks for the find and for sharing. No more fiddling with the screwdriver and wrecking the lock tab on the bottom part of the damper. Thanks again.
