How to Change a Cabin Air Filter in a Hummer

by Cameron Easey

Cabin filters are installed on many types of vehicles, including a Hummer. The air filter in the vehicle is designed to filter harmful air and allergens to keep the air in the vehicle clean. When the cabin air filter in your Hummer collects too much dirt and other particles it will no longer filter correctly and will need to be replaced. You can change a cabin air filter in a Hummer by first ordering a replacement filter for the vehicle.

Find and remove the screws that are securing the panel that is covering access to the air filter with the nut driver. The screws are located under the glove box on the passenger side of the vehicle.

Set the panel aside. Locate the access door for the cabin filter that was under the panel.

Remove the screw that is used to secure the access door with the screwdriver. Set the screw aside so you do not lose it.

Open the door and pull out the first filter. Pull out any additional filters that are inside the compartment.

Take the new filters out of the package and insert them into the filter compartment.

Close the access door and then replace the screw. Tighten the screw to secure the door.

Set the panel back into place and secure it with the screws.


  • A Hummer can have more than one filter installed in the filter compartment.
  • A retainer clip may be used to secure the filter in the filter compartment.


  • A Hummer H3 does not come with a cabin filter.
