    Passenger compartment air filter

    Where is the air filter and how do you replace it. The manual says to let your dealer replace it.

    Another way for car companies to get some money now that cars don't need servicing as much. I replaced the cabin air filter in my daughter's Mazda 3 and it was a pita. What saved me was someone had posted a video of how to do it on you tube. I had to take out the glove compartment to get to it. Hopefully some enterprising individual will figure it out and post a video for this car. The instructions will probably be in a Haynes manual if they have one for this car.

    Hi everyone,

    When my car was in the shop for warranty work, the dealer rented me a cruze. I took alot of things apart, trying to learn and curious where things were located, like the passenger cabin filter. It's located behind the glove box. Real easy to take the glove door off, no tools required. 5 minute job at most.

    I can't wait for a repair book on the cruze. On the car I traded for the cruze (Cadi) the air filter was in the engine compartment on Pass side. Two clips & lift a trap plastic door & pull old filter out & new one in. Max time five minutes. If I recall right, the filter was about $45 dollars.
    It was easy to check & every two or three years I changed it. If you live in South West with sand & dust you might have to change more often.

    Is it easy to get the glove box out? Air Bags scare me. Cowl sounds easier. Let us know when some does this. Thanks for the info.

    ...yep, the wife has me replace the filter after each dust storm (~2-3 per year), so it's NOT a cheap task.
