Im wondering where I can view recirc air vent lid or do I have to tear the car apart to see it? Ive discovered my cabin filter is prob under cowel under wipers if techs guess in conversation was correct in 2016 ls gen 2 cruze. Ive not torn it apart to look. I have on ocas heard flaps shut and open w/ air pressure changes but with all the odor coming in like an open window would Id love to see the flaps without tearing it apart? thanks!! edit to add my cruze's glove box is molded in the only lose part is the door and it doesnt even come off. This was verified by chevy. But I can see its molded in no removal impossible not made for it Automotive exterior Vehicle Car Bumper Room
Below it is a box marked air bag (knee bag)

[QUOTEYou were on the right track for cabin air removal. i don't know if you can see what you need through the opening for the filter. remember not all vehicles came with a filter so if yours doesn't have one don't think you got jipped.[/QUOTE]

Cool but how do I remove the far right panel thats attatched to dash to expose right bolts?

Thank you!!! Just what I needed, a verification before I go ripping into my new car. I greatly appreciate your assistance....do those pins come out easily and is there anything in my road that will break off easy? Youve been a huge help. PS: are you aware if you can see recirculate flap in there? :rock:

Today I asked maintenance manager at dealer if anything can be done for the odors coming in my car when recirc is shut. He basically said no. That even if they look at a cabin air filter and its not there its not going to stop outside odors. He said run a/c it shuts the vent. Well thats that, his advice doesnt work, only on high. Our system is not auto its manual. I did ask if the vent doors could be not shutting completely he said no that wouldnt happen. Guess this means it is what is. (its even loud if we sit in traffic like there is an open hole somewhere) It just rots cause I have asthma and our old car (yaris) did not do this at all. I love my cruze other then this. Just thought Id update. If I ever feel like it (hate to risk tearing the car apart ) I will try to get to air filter per info on this post so thank you! :)
