Where is it located on our cars? Can you get the replacement at Walmart?

Right beneath the passenger side wiper blade. Yes, Walmart carries the filter : FRAM Fresh Breeze Cabin Air Filter, CF10370: Auto Parts : Walmart.com

I was able to pick it up in store after I ordered online, the plastic cowl underneath the windshield wiper wont fit right after I took it off because a plastic nub wont fit in the hole on the drivers side cowl. So be careful when dealing with the cowls/installation.

Overall it should take about 10 mins to install.

Thanks for the heads-up. Just ordered a new cabin filter and air filter from Rock Auto (great prices!).

Since I bought my car used a couple months ago, that was actually the first thing I did...Right after turning on the A/C OMG, like getting slapped in the face with skunk puke. That was all the reminder I needed..

Awesome. Thanks. I think I'll take a look at mine today. Mine has almost 12,000 on it. I bought it with 9,600 so it probably has not been done.

I'm closing in on 40k and didn't think about changing mine yet. I haven't noticed any weird smells or anything, but I'm sure it's time. Thanks for the reminder.

I just checked mine, and at a little under 12,000 mi, it is ready to change. I'm off to the store to find one. Thanks for the reminder!

Does k&n make a washable one, cant see the value of having to change it every 10k miles. If they don't guess i better stock up!

2016 Ruby Red GT/CS 401a automatic with 3:55 gears, bone stock, but not for long!

I have a new one sitting on my bar. Been meaning to get around to it for the last two weeks. Time to stop procrastinating.
