    Northern, VA isn’t any cheaper. Just sold my 2700 sq ft house in Loudoun County for $627K in 3 days. I’m taking the profit down to VA Beach where I can pay cash for a house.

    At higher fan speeds the cavitation gets knocked down by the filter. It does sound like less, but it’s mostly the sound getting isolated. Only a digi air flow meter would reveal any difference.

    Better Late Than Never! The Yukon is 13 yrs young and is just now getting this mod.

    Installed a Dorman cabin air filter kit today, # 259-200, in about an hr. Like someone else mentioned, the hardest part is removing the inner most cover screw. I cut between the two ridges. Takes 3or4 passes. When going back together I used that inner most screw to hold the new door closed.
    Replacement filters are: Dorman# 259-001 or ACDelco CF193C or GM 23101674 or Premium Guard PC9957

    Adding the cabin air filter is a smart move. My 2002 has it, but 2006 Chrysler 300C, not! My husband added it using parts we picked up on eBay. We had a big improvement in air quality and sig less dirt accumulation on the dash. Win!

    GM had a service bulletin on this mod. But my dealer refused to do it under warranty. Then I forgot about it.

    I just did the mod. There were pine needles in the A/C evaporator, I pulled out most of them. Thinking about it.. it's too little too late. The heater core, and A/C evaporator are already loaded up with gunk. Filtering it 100,000 miles later... does a little air quality help, as there is no way to wash the core, & evaporator.

    Does it slow down air flow to the vents?
    Edit. Nevermind. I see its not noticeable
