Where Is My Cabin Filter & Fuel Filter On My '03 Impala?

Hi everyone! I was going to change my Cabin Filter and Fuel Filter today but I can't seem to find them. Also, where exactly is my PCV Valve located? I was thinking about changing that too. Can anyone help me? Maybe paint me a picture or draw me a map. hehe Are they a pain to replace once located? Help! lol

the cabin filter... you have to pop the hood open. and then via the area of the wipers-- you have to remove the black plastic in this area- you can then get to the filter in this recessed area. I think its in the manual...
as for the fuel--- I dont know that one.

  1. <LI type=1>Remove the vacuum hoses (1) from the fuel pressure regulator (3) and the positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve (2).
  2. Remove the PCV valve (2).

FUEL FILTER

Thank you, thank you, thank you!! That helps out big time. Looks to be very simple. The cabin filter may take a little bit to get in, but should be simple. Thanks again!!

Location & Replacment Steps For Cabin Filter - '03 Impala LS 3.8L

I found the Cabin Filter and replaced it too. OMG... if any of you have not replaced your Cabin Filter or have not done so in like 10K-15K miles, you REALLY need to do so. Mine was unbelievable! Super, Super Nasty! Moldy greenish/gray looking and debris stuck in it. hahaha

Well.... ummm... now that I know where it is, umm... yeah. If ya need help locating it, this is where it is at. Bare with me here... haha.

If you are facing the front of the car, it is under the left side (passenger side) part of the black Windshield Cowl. The cowl is under the windshield wipers. You do not, I repeat, do not have to take off the wiper blade (like dorky me who took off the driver side wiper blade to look for the dumb thing, hehe. Only to find out it is under the other side). With the hood open, take off the rubber seal thingy going along the engine compartment below the cowl. Once that is off, pop the wiper fluid hoses out of the tabs only on that part of the cowl (left/Pass. side part). Once they are off, there are 3 plastic tabs that hold down the cowl. Two have center pop out tabs then the rest comes out, the other is a big turning one. After those are out, carefully remove the cowl (lifting wiper arm a bit to get cowl out). Once you get it off, you will see the Cabin Filter down inside. Reverse these steps to put everything back on.

That is pretty much it! I hope you understood that.
