This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the fifth generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015) GM Chevrolet Camaro in cleaning or changing the engine air filter element in the LLT or LFX 3.6 liter V6 motor.

Owners of other General Motors vehicles such as the Spark, Cruze, Malibu, Sonic, Impala, Traverse, Tahoe, Trax, SS, GMC Terrain, Acadia, Yukon, Buick Verano, Regal, LaCrosse, Encore, Enclave and the Holden Barina may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A few compatible replacement engine air filters with their part numbers are as follows: ACDelco A3137C, Fram CA10690, AEM 28-20434, K&N 33-2434, Wix 49475, Purolator A36102, Premium Guard PA6102, Mann Filter MA 1248 and Hastings # AF1429.

No tools are needed to replace the filter.

A wet/dry shop vacuum may be useful for cleaning and re-using the original OEM element.

Lift Off Top Half Air Box
Engine Air Filter Exposed
Pull Out Old Air Filter
The engine air box is located at the front right (driver) side of the engine bay.

Gently pull back the release tab on the right side and rear edge of the air box to release the two retaining clips.

Pull the top cover off the bottom half of the air box.

Pull the old air filter straight out of the lower half of the air box.

Clean Out Engine Air Box

Inspect Both Sides
If your vacuum has a crevice attachment, clean out any sand or debris in the bottom half of the engine air box.

Inspect both sides of the old filter.

If the old filter is relatively clean, just tap out the large debris and remove any fine dust with a vacuum.

If the old filter is dark black or grey and entirely clogged with dirt, dust, insects, twigs, leaves, hair, pollen and other debris, it should be replaced with a new element.

I recommend buying the Fram CA10690 engine air filter since it has excellent reviews on Amazon.


Clean With Vacuum
Install New Air Filter
Insert Tabs In To Slots
Install the new filter in to the bottom half of the air box with the pleats facing down and the metal wire mesh facing up towards you.

Insert the tabs on the rear edge of the air box cover in to the slots on the lower half of the air box.

Push Down Top Cover
Retaining Clips Secured
Engine Air Filter Replaced
Push the air box cover down until the two retaining clips click securely in to place.

Double check that the top half of the air box is secure with no part of the air filter visible at the edges.

Be sure to record the engine air filter change in your vehicle's service records.
