I used to work for Purolator, they have outstanding quality engineers and manufacturing and trully care about making quality products.

These filters are easy to replace, find them by accessing via the passenger side of the firewall above the air intake cowling/weatherstrip area.

Replace every 18K miles for best service life.

I bought the Purolator because the compatible Denso isn't stocked in the store. This filter fits the air box very poorly. The one that it replaced had a foam gasket all around for a good fit and no chance of bypass. This has no gasket and has about 1/4" all around. The filter can move around in the air box and it doesn't give me confidence that this is the right one for my car. Look someplace other than Purolator for a good Impala air filter. Disappointing for a premium filter at a high price.

Comments about Purolator Cabin Air Filter:

Fit as expected but was not very rigid as other product I used in the past. Less rigid made it easier to install but seems to bend which caused it fold over rather than lay flat.

Comments about Purolator Cabin Air Filter:

Purchased this for a 2010 Impala LT. My wife was complaining that the car had an odor fro the vents. Well in the spirit of happy wife/happy life, I did some snooping around. Sure enough, the cabin filter was gross. I considered doing the whole special filter but I would have to wait for it to be delivered. Instead I just purchased this filter from the local store. Install on an Impala is extremely easy and there are plenty of online videos to show you each step of the way. I only used needle nose pliers to pull up on the plastic tabs. Other than that, it is just a matter of moving plastic pieces and rubber trim.

Comments about Purolator Cabin Air Filter:

Purolator has enclosed comprehensive instructions with a generous (24 minute) installation time estimate. A screwdriver and a pair of pliers should allow you to complete this in less than 15 minutes. Just be careful when removing old filter so as not to spill contaminants into fan inlet or prepare to vacuum out debris. There is a slight challenge in seating the new filter to make sure that it does not scrunch up allowing dirt to bypass so you must take a bit of time during this step to insure great result.

                The cabin air filter is located below the windshield, passenger side in a 2001 Chevrolet Impala. The black plastic cover must be removed to access the filter. Once you raise the hood and remove 3 plastic clips and the washer hose from its holders you would be able to remove the plastic cover over the filter.

                Open the hood, go to pass side of car, pull off the weather striping gently and remove plastic button for plastic grate venting near glass- windshield area. Then remove the screening and you will see on a down angle the filter inserted down towards the glove box.
