I am wondering if the 2005 Malibu has a cabin air filter? If so, where is it located and how do I go about changing it?
Change Cabin Air Filter on 2005 Malibu?
It should have one, unless there is an option to not have it that I'm not aware of. Anyway it is located behind the glove box. All you have to do is squeeze the sides and pull down to drop the glove box door out of the way. Once that is done it is right in front, no tools needed.
With the door open, it should stop at a certain point. I think there is a black stopper there. Squeeze the side right at the stopper, may require some good effort. Do one one side at a time, it should go for you.
