Default DOES A 2003 SSEi HAVE A CABIN AIR FILTER??

It'* been a long time since I have been on this. Almost two years since I was hit by a drunk driver in my 2001 SSEi. Neddless to say I fixed my car and traded it in. The next owner actually sold the vehicle within two weeks. The following owner totaled it. So, within a six weeks the car was in two accidents. I finally was able to pick up a 2003 SSEi with 32K on the clock. My queston is if this vehicle is equipped with a cabin air filter like my 2001? I don't even see it when I look for it? Any ideas? I purchased the vehicle thinking that it was taken out. Any help would grately be appreciated! Thanks..

I do not believe that it came with the filter. This is a thread where it was discussed, along with some part nuimbers.

It filters the air for the interior of the car.

The 2003 Bonnevilles came equipped with provisions to install a Cabin Air Filter, but did not actually have the filter element installed. ??? You can get a Fram Cabin Air Filter which comes with the frame support & the filter element and do the install into the cabin filter compartment located right side firewall. When you look into the compartment, you can see the heating/cooling squirrel cage blower.

I looked the other day on the 03 and it had one in it. Kinda crazy I told my brother he would have to get one and it already had one, really really dirty though.
