How to Replace the Cabin Filter on a 1992 Chevy 1500 Truckby Zyon Silket
The 1992 Chevy 1500 pickup truck uses two cabin filters: one for the front of the vehicle and the other for the back of the vehicle. Fortunately, Chevy used duct work to move the air from the outside of the vehicle to the inside front and back of the vehicle. This means both filters are located in the same place--under the passenger side dashboard, beneath the glove box. The Chevy 1500 incorporates an access panel to reach the filters so removing the glove box is not required.
Locate the plastic kick panel under the glove box. The panel has several screws holding it to the underside of the dashboard. Remove the screws with a screwdriver and pull the panel off the underside of the dashboard.
Remove the screws from the cabin air filter lid with a screwdriver. The lid rests just above the kick panel you just removed.
Pull both filters out of the filter box. Pay attention to the way the filters are oriented inside the box.
Push the new filters into the box and ensure both filters are oriented correctly.
Place the lid back onto the filter box and secure it using the screws and the screwdriver.
Place the kick panel back under the dashboard and secure it using the screws and screwdriver.
