Where is the cabin air filter located in a 2000 Silverado 1500 4x4? Thanks.

It's underneath the glovebox area. You'll need to remove three or four small bolts from the underside of the plastic cover that covers up all the ac/heating equipment and channels. The one closest to the center console is always difficult because it is recessed into the cover, youll need a deep well socket and some patience. But once that is off you'll see a little box, I believe it just unsnaps but it's been a while. Unbolt or unsnap that door and it folds down towards the seats and inside youll find two cabin air filters. Its been a while since my last change so I might be a little off but i hope that helps!

I just replaced mine in my '01, but the cover of mine had a 7mm bolt in it, just fyi. the cover is about 2" x 8" and the filter is two pieces. just pull the first one out, slide the other over and pull it out.

A year, or 12000-15000 miles from what I've read. Or I suppose whenever you think your air isnt blowing quite as hard as it should. I finally changed mine and it made a world of difference

I ended up just taking mine out in my Yukon, filters were like $60 and I didn't see the need, never had one before in my vehicles.
