As a cost cutting measure gm did away with in cabin air filters. Shame on gm for doing that.

My Honda has cabin filter and haven't replaced it even at 197k miles. My new replacement cabin filter is still in the garage since to replace filter means cutting the dashboard trim which I don't want.

Not to hijack the thread, but what are the white, circular, filter-looking things beneath the driver's and passenger seats in a vehicle which has "cooled seats" in the front?

There are seat filters for the cooled seats, never seen one, but have seen info in the service manual on them

Just pulled mine off and noticed they're just poly floss so I rinsed them in the sink. They started out tan and I was able to get them back to white

Got to make them work better with clean filters

I'll let you know if there is any "seat of the pants" improvement. Sorry...

I swear there has been a definite improvement in the cooling of the seat after cleaning the filters. I could really feel it on my back. I complained in another thread that the flow was extremely low. So, definitely give the filters a quick clean in the sink if your fans are working but the seats aren't cooling much.

Are there are there any tricks to removing the filters under the seats?

You reach up over the little bar and twist it counter-clockwise. Have to mostly use your fingertups. Putting it back takes a little more patience. Just line it up over the hole and give it a little twist. The second filter popped back in easier just because I knew what to do
