All credit goes to the author. I don't think this has been posted before. Actually it looks fairly easy. Removal of the plastic parts isn't that bad. Take your time and use trim removal tools, and you will be just fine.

I like how Chevy made it 10 times more difficult to change the cabin filter, as in the first gen model. They have to justify that $70 they charge for labor, they tried to charge me, in my gen 1. When I asked the service advisor if they changed the filter, because he didn’t see where they had changed it on the service invoice. He went back and got one, and changed it in the service drive. I said, “I’m not paying $70 for something my service writer can change in the service drive.” He didn’t even bring it back for the tech to do it.

I do not understand why the 3 panels had to be removed. It seems like the glove box was not obstructed by them.. I might be missing something. This was way easier in Gen 1, no tools needed. I did notice the Gen 2 owners manual says it is a dealership service item. This is going backwards.

This filter changing process is a mess. And I thought my 2016 Golf Sportwagen was a PITA? This takes the cake alright. Squeaks and rattles are in all our futures!

Side note... His Cruze has a glove box light! Mine doesn't :(


Already ordered the OEM light housing with the hopes of a harness being tucked up in the dash somewhere needing to be utilized :clap: PN # 13577963

I could have bought the filter and done it myself for about $13 like I did in my Gen 1, and my wife's 15 Equinox. I didn't with this mess, I paid the dealer $40 and let them do it. Well worth it I say!
