I have an 08 GMC Acadia SLT and it also has no cabin air filter. What’s up with the parts houses selling products for a vehicle that the product doesn’t exist. Why do they also have videos for the same thing. They need to have exemptions if necessary.
74 year old female trying to change air filter behind the glove box in her Acadia 2010. After buying a filter which is advertised as fitting a 2010 and watching videos, I finally get the glove box disengaged only to find NO AIR FILTER BOX behind the glove compartment. Now, I’ve spent money on a filter for nothing and struggling to open glove box only to struggle to put it back in place. And I say struggle because I have severe arthritis in my hands. Why is it advertised as having one???
