Just wondering if I am the only one who owned a car for 10 years and didn't realize it was equipped with a cabin filter.I had never even looked for it and I'm telling you it was some more of dirty! I found a change procedure online and was easy to change.I went with an AC filter as I love OEM if available.

I had our caddy for about 10 years before realizing that.

I change mine once a year, just make sure you get that rubber piece back on there so water doesn't leak inside the car.

Passenger side by the wiper you gotta take off the black Plastic panel right there under the wipers
Thanks I'll get to it when I change my wiper motor bracket :bang: always clean the snow off your roof too gm uses cheap soft metal for the stop tab, they should recall it!

Common issue with these, if the wipers encounter too much resistance from snow or ice, the stop tab gets bent, and the wipers stop in the middle of the windshield. You have to tear into it and bend it back in place.

Their is a TSB #02-08-43-002 on the wiper issue (their are several other TSB's for other GM cars and vans that use this type of wiper assembly). Their is a new crank arm and a motor bracket service kit. Very common issue on this style of wiper assembly. Below is a pic (of sorts) of the assembly with a straight park tab indicated by the arrow. If that tab is bent then when the wiper motor reverses to move the wipers into the park/home position the wipers will stop straight up instead. Hope this helps TSS.
