How to Change the Cabin Air Filter in Your Car

How to Change the Cabin Air Filter in Your Car

 

Knowing how to change the cabin air filter in your car is important, because it can keep your car’s heat and AC working better. The cabin air filter is easy to change, so doing it yourself can save you money on scheduled maintenance. Follow these steps and you’ll have a fresh air filter installed in no time.

1. Remove the glove box

First, you need to remove your glove box so you can get to the air filter. To do this open the glove box and remove the limiting stop arm that holds it in place, then squeeze the front and back of the glove box until the clamps release.

2. Take out the old air filter

There should be a faceplate covering your air filter. All you have to do is move the latches to take the faceplate off and pull the air filter out. Make sure to pay attention to the arrows that indicate the direction of the airflow.

3. Clean the area

Use a cloth to wipe away any dust and debris that have accumulated. You want the gaskets and filter chamber to be as clean as possible before you install the new air filter.

4. Install the new air filter

Make sure the arrows on your new air filter are facing the same direction as the old filter and pop it into place. It should fit in easily.

5. Replace the glove box

Reassemble the glove box, and you’re done! You’ve replaced your cabin air filter.

If you have any issues doing this yourself, or you need more service advice, schedule an appointment to talk to the Chevy experts at DeLillo Chevrolet.

Amazon Can Now Deliver Packages to Chevrolet Vehicles

Amazon Can Now Deliver Packages to Chevrolet Vehicles

General Motors has entered into a deal with Amazon that allows Amazon to deliver packages to Chevrolet vehicles. With the new Amazon Key technology, drivers of 2015-model year and newer Chevy, GMC, Buick, and Cadillac vehicles can give Amazon delivery people access to their trunks.

According to Chevy, In-Car Delivery is available to Amazon Prime customers at no extra cost, so if you have Prime and own a GM vehicle, you can take advantage of this convenient service easily and totally free. With In-Car Delivery you don’t have to wait until you get home to open important packages anymore.

Delivery is available with two-day, one-day, and even same-day shipping for especially urgent purchases, and packages can be delivered anywhere to cars parked in publicly accessible areas. And it’s easy to set up Amazon Key In-Car Delivery—all you have to do is download the Amazon Key App and agree to sync it with your OnStar Account.

After setup, all you have to do is shop online at Amazon and select “in-car” for the delivery option. You’ll get a notification on your phone when the package is out for delivery and after it’s delivered, and the delivery person will relock the vehicle so your package is secure.

If you need a newer Chevrolet to take part in this secure way to receive packages, come talk to the sales team at DeLillo Chevrolet for new and used car options.

Take Your Family on This Epic Road Trip

 

epic road trip

Road trips are a great way to bond as a family while seeing new things and having great adventures. If you have ever wanted to visit every state, Chevrolet and data scientist Randy Olson have put together an epic road trip that will take you through the 48 contiguous United States.

This trip makes one stop in each state and spans 13,389 miles. If you followed the map from end to end, you would spend 214.56 hours on the road (about nine days), which doesn’t even include time for overnight stops or any visiting time.

“This map is designed so road trippers can start anywhere and drive as much or as little as they like,” said Olson. “Across the U.S., people can create their perfect route, whether staying close to home or embarking on a once-in-a-lifetime 48-state journey.”

You can begin the journey at any point on the map. The stop in California is right in our backyard at Disneyland. If we were going to take part of this journey, we would head east to see The Grand Canyon, visit the Santa Fe Children’s Museum, and the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. Or you could head north and stop at the National Automobile Museum in Reno, catch the spectacular Crater Lake National Park, and visit the iconic Pike Place Market in Seattle.

Whichever way you choose to go, come in to DeLillo Chevrolet. We’ll help make sure your car is ready for a long drive, or help you find a vehicle more up to the task.

Chevy Reveals 2019 Silverado 4500HD, 5500HD, and 6500HD at NTEA The Work Truck Show

2017 Ram 4500HD

NTEA The Work Truck Show

This March, Chevy revealed the eagerly-anticipated 2019 Silverado 4500HD, 5500HD, and 6500HD at the NTEA Work Truck Show. These pickup trucks are mind-blowingly capable while also being distinctly customer-oriented. Chevy wanted to create trucks that are work-ready, offering a great driving experience while also being capable of handling worksite jobs with ease. At DeLillo Chevrolet, we think Chevy succeeded with these new medium-duty pickup trucks.

Chevy thoroughly thought out what customers want in a work-ready truck, taking input from truck drivers, technicians, Chevrolet dealers, and other experts. The new Silverado is incredibly powerful, featuring a 6.6-liter Duramax diesel engine with 350 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of torque. While sitting in the driver’s seat, you will be privy to a superior driving experience, as one of the challenges Chevy was dedicated to overcoming was the fact that large trucks can be difficult to drive, in terms of maneuvering and handling.

The Silverado’s premium strength and maneuverability are matched by its smart interior that offers both superior comfort and advanced technology. The interior cabin is durable yet stylish and provides a welcome respite while on a worksite. It will also offer a fun infotainment system with Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay™, and Android Auto™ compatibility, as well as an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot so you don’t have to worry about being out of range.

According to Chevrolet, the new Silverado trucks will head into production late this year, with order guides and pricing information announced this summer. Be sure to check in with us at DeLillo Chevrolet for more information.

Chevrolet Silverado 4500HD

Truck enthusiasts have been awaiting the debut of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 4500HD and 5500HD for some time now, but they won’t have to wait much longer.

The all-new Silverado medium duty models will arrive with regular or crew cabs paired with two- or four-wheel drive.
