    Tuned how ? I took mine out in 2006 and have had no - none, nada, problems since............ BUT the car is garaged and I drive mostly open highway and rural areas.

    Re: 03 SLS Cabin Air Filter

    I decided to install a filter after considering my present environmental conditions. In addition, I found a great eBay deal for a NOS AC Delco CF101, $12.95 (incl. shipping).

    Today, after 2 attempts, I successfully installed the filter. As advised by others, I would strongly recommend removing the accelerator pedal and lubricating the frame top/bottoms of the filters. Also, as you slide the filter in, the lower frame may catch on the edge of the evap housing unit....if so, gently push up to get over the edge.

    BTW, on my 1st attempt, I did temporarily lose a filter. I used an extendable mirror to see where it went. Found the filter stuck high above. Barely could touch the end tab with my middle finger. I was able to bring it down by applying super weatherstrip adhesive on tip of finger, and then gluing myself to tab, pulling it down. I was very fortunate to have been able to salvage the filter without any harm.

    Thank you for everyone's info and advice. BTW, If anyone needs help with their CF install in the CLE area, let me know.
