This blog post contains gratuitous photos of pure filth


(Obviously, the replacement filter is on the right)

I finally got around to changing the cabin air filter in my 10-year-old Chevy Cobalt.  Actually, until recently I did not know that there was a filter anywhere in there; over the years, most all of the maintenance of the car was done by a dealer and never once was there a mention of a cabin air filter.  Live and learn.  I was researching something unrelated when I ran across the video for changing the filter.

We bought the car brand new in 2005 and I figured we would put around 10-years on it before we started shopping for a new one. Since I reckoned that we only had a couple of more years left on this car at the most, initially I was going to just remove the filter rather than replace it.  Once I saw how much crud it had filtered out over the years, I decided that replacing the filter was likely worth the small amount of money and bother.

2007 Cobalt here. Mine didn't look much better when I replaced it after 7 years. I'm driving the dang thing until it dies, which may be sooner than later with all the recall repairs I've had to have done....
