How Do I Replace a Cabin Filter on a 2000 Chevy S10 Pickup?by Bryan Clark
Replacing the cabin air filter on your 2000 Chevrolet S-10 pickup is an easy way to improve the air quality in the cabin of your truck. The cabin air filter (also called the cabin filter) regularly gets clogged with leaves, dust and debris from your day-to-day driving. Cleaning the filter, or replacing it completely, keeps your truck's air quality high, while ensuring that your climate controls work to their full potential. All it takes to replace the filter is a screwdriver and a little time.
Remove the kick plate near where your left leg would be if you were sitting in the passenger seat. The kick plate is below and to the left of the glove box. There will be four screws to remove. Then pull off the kick plate.
Unscrew the single screw that holds the door to the cabin air filter closed.
Pull out and up to remove the door.
Remove the cabin air filter.
Replace the cabin air filter with a new one.
Replace the door by lining it up and pushing down to lock it back into place.
Screw the screw into the door to hold it closed.
Line the kick plate up and hold it in place while you replace the four screws to hold it on.
