Default Cabin Air Filter

Does a 2003 Buick lesabre custom have a passenger compartment air filter?

No mention of it in the owner'* manual, but rockauto lists them for your car. May have to wait for another Lesabre owner to chime in.

Not sure the answer to your question, but I changed the title of your thread to allow you get help easier, and to help others that may have the same question in the future.

If you would change it to "cabin air filter" it would get even more help

It should have one, if the 2003 is the same as my 2000 LeSabre. Check out this video for location and instructions on replacing:

(for a Bonneville but same on LeSabre)

My '00, when I bought it, did not have ANYTHING in that reservoir. Why the previous owner would have removed the cabin air filter (and frame) and not replaced it with anything is beyond me.

I found the filter element + new frame included at Napa Auto Parts pretty inexpensively... see if this link works. It just slid right in there. I'd say go for that option rather than picking through junkyards.

I think your right it was an option. I want to thank everyone for your help and I'll see if I can find a filter housing somewhere.
Thanks again, Great web site

Wix makes a cabin filter that comes with a frame, I found one on Amazon.com. My Bonneville also did not come with one, it may be a dealer installed option, not sure. At any rate it was an easy install after removing some of the cowl trim.
