That's a good question about the air filtration system.Terrain said:No cabin filter? I wonder what "air conditioning - automatic climate control with air filtration system and rear floor ducts" in the brochure is referring to.
The filter part number is listed in the Terrain owners manual..see picture belowirwinbdi said:Hello all,
Does anyone know if the GMC Terrain have a cabin filter? I would think it would, but I don't see any mention of it in the owners manual. Anyone?
It is[/color] listed in the owners manual as a part..I posted a copy! Right above your post!SnowItch said:I'll change that to I was told "No, it does not". It also is not listed in the owner's manual as a part, or as part of the maintenance schedule.
Take it to Jiffy Lube, I'm sure they'll sell you something that they call a cabin filter at an inflated price.
Interesting. It is located behind the glove box.SnowItch said:Searched on the GM Part number. Found this link on how to install:
Is the spot there for the filter but it's just missing or no trap door at all Sno? Maybe they just forgot to insert it on the line.SnowItch said:Hmmm... Interesting.
This was one of the things I asked about specifically because my son has bad allergies. Usually, if a car has a filter, and we get a HEPA filter (make a HEPA filter) for it, he's fine. If it doesn't have a filter, we take a small 12v filter with us (which we did this fall). We were told no.
Based on Brian's post, I went out and look - ours doesn't have a filter. Not a big deal, because I would have replaced the stock filter, but I'm still curious why one wasn't installed.
Anyway, the glove box comes out quite easily. When you open the box, you can feel along the top of it, and there is one place that the top of the box "catches" on a outcropping. It is easy to "bend" the glove box (its very flexible) so that it releases from the top and swings down (do yourself a favor and empty the box first). I simply pushed the back up (to remove it from the bottom hinge plate) and a little to the right, and it came right out. The "filter" box itself is towards the top of the space where the glove box was. There are two "clips" that open by pushing the center piece up and then pulling the surrounding latch forward. The door hinges from the top, and there is a space for the filter, but in my case - no filter.
Brian (or someone else who goes to look),
Can you measure the filter for me (The AC/Delco site doesn't list dimensions) - I'd like to make/buy a HEPA filter for my Nox.
It is in the manual with the part number..remember... I showed you! :SnowItch said:Yep, the spot is there - no filter. I would just replace the GMC filter with a better one, but I would have liked to have known about the slot for one.
I'm really surprised that its not mentioned on any of the documentation for maintenance.
I checked mine....yep it is there. So I stand corrected, good job Brian following thru on this one.irwinbdi said:Thanks for all of the replies!!
It does have one!. Its behind the glove box. In my the Terrain the glovebox just pulls out and the trap door for the filter is just behind it. I opened the trap door and removed the filter to inspect it. Its pretty big and had a little debris on it even after 250 miles. I live in a very dust desert, so I generally replace this filter every 6 months on my other vehicles.
Thanks again for your replies.
