Got mine too on Friday. There was'nt one in there though, and no "hardware". The filter just kind of "lays" in there....nothing really holding it in place. Took it to dealership on saturday to get their opinion (of Sales) and they say its ok...

Anyone have pics of how this "should" look.

I am using my "quote fingers" in case you have'nt "noticed"...

if you got the same one I did from ebay for $13.99 all you will get
is the filter. The housing you should already have. I just removed the
old filter and slid in the new one thanks to my girl how pointed out that
I needed to do that. If not for her I think I was going your route.
I will can try to get a pic for you mike.

I just received my new filter from AutoBarn. Cost: $30, it comes with the support frame, and has the charcoal based filter element.
FRAM CF 8804

mremer, I took a quick photo of the filter installed. I realized you probably would like to see the thing outside of the compartment, but if you look close, you can see there is a plastic support frame that the filter is secured in place with. The black fastener (lower right) locates the frame on the right side. There is also a locking type release clip on the left side of frame (obscured in photo) that secures the left. It takes a little finesse <sp. to remove/reinstall the frame & filter in one piece.

I am missing all of that hardware. All I have is the paper filter, and it is just "laying" in there. Nothing securing it, and it does'nt even look "tight". Anyone got part numbers?

Missing? Wow, I wonder how that happened? Did you get your car used or was it an error from the manufacturer?

I don't know the GM part # , but you can get the FRAM CF 8804 Cabin Air Filter for less money, and it is better quality than the oem.
It comes with charcoal impregnated filter element & the hardware all complete.

I have a new Bosch filter, just not the appropriate hardware. As I said, its just "sitting" there.
