This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 or 2010 Pontiac G6 GT in replacing the air filter in the GM 3500 3.5L V6 engine.

The air cleaner replacement procedure should be similar for other Pontiac G6 vehicles from 2005 to 2010 in base V6, SE, GT, and GTP trim levels featuring the 2.4L, 3.5L, 3.6L and 3.9L engines.

Owners of other GM or Pontiac cars such as the G5, G8, G4, GTO, Chevy Aveo, Cobalt, HHR, Malibu, Equinox, and Impala may also find the guide to be useful.

The only tool necessary to replace the engine air filter in a Pontiac G6's 3500 V6 motor is a Torx T25 screwdriver or a Torx T-25 drill bit.

A replacement air filter is available from a variety of manufacturers such as the ACDelco A2930C, Fram CA9948, Purolator A25594, or the washable/reusable K&N 33-2315.

Lifting Air Box Cover

The black plastic air filter housing in a Pontiac G6 is located at the front corner of the engine bay on the passenger side.

To remove the cover and access the air cleaner element, unscrew the three "Torx" screws located near each other at the top of the air filter cover.

Be careful when removing these screws because they are easy to lose in the engine bay.

Replacement screws are GM part # 11589092 and can be obtained from GM Parts Direct.

With the three Torx T25 screws removed, lift the air filter cover up and towards the rear of the car.

Then reach your hand in and gently slide out the old air filter constructed of rubber, paper and wire mesh.

This air filter was relatively clean having been used for only 16,000 miles. So I tapped out any debris and replaced it.

I recommend buying the Fram CA9948 engine air filter since it has excellent reviews on Amazon.
