I bought a new filter on eBay for $14 and $5 S&H. Not bad I think. So how hard is it to replace? I think it is on the battery side but there is a trick w.r.t. the clips apparently.

Anyone have advice? Thank you.

Very easy to do...Thanks for reminding me..will probably change mine this week :)...Its in the owners manual


There is an access door directly above the battery with 3 spring retainers.

Open the door and slide the filter out towards the front.

NOTE: There is a FLOW arrow on the filter, so it is installed the correct way

Hum, did not know there was a cabin filter in the cars, is that just for a C6 or does the C5 have also?

just a question out of curiosity.. (is there any other kind really?)

do people with C6's notice a reduction in interior dust/dirt build up due to the filter being there? I mean... really, is there a measurable improvement in anything particular?

Maybe only for fine dust and pollen for alergies?

I find those cabin filters don't work so well when you cruise with the windows down.:rofl:

That, and every time you open your doors, stuff can blow in. It would just be nice to have a filter for those times you can see it's dusty or have to drive through a dusty area, then you can at least seal up the car.

That was my sentiment as well Riley. It just seemed to be more of a marketing angle than anything else?

How true, never thought of that, my windows are usually down or the top is off.

Cabin filter arrived today. Cost all of $20 including shipping. Perfect size like the old one and at 1/4 the price. It was not the easiest thing to replace as you really have to get in there LOL. Man the old one looked pretty filthy,
