I would recommend having your vehicle looked at by an authorized GM dealer. Please keep me updated on your progress with this issue.

I can get some slack in the spring-loaded cord on the right side of the glove box, but I cannot get the hard plastic piece to disengage. I assume that the "head" inside the box is supposed to move down and pass through the lower, larger hole, but I cannot get it to move down even a little bit. When I read elsewhere about it "snapping" out, is considerable force required to do that?

On the earlier years, you squeeze in on both sides of the glove box and it drops out of its track. That allows you access to the air filter compartment behind it. I don't remember how the black cable is handled. I just checked the owner manual in the glovebox--page 3-21

With considerable difficulty I was able to change my cabin air filter (2010 Cobalt Coupe). I couldn't get the spring-loaded cord to detach, which would have helped. The swing down section immediately in front of the filter collided with some heavy wiring that had to be shoved aside (and the swing-down section had to held down with one hand while removing and replacing the filter).
After I removed the filter I looked inside the cavity. There I was surprised to see some raised sheet metal on the right side, half the height of the opening, a seemingly impassable object in the way of inserting the new filter. In fact, the only way to insert the filter was to angle it upwards at about 45 degrees.
This is the worst designed item I have yet to see on my Cobalt. There appears to be no ledge for the filter to sit on. Therefore, I believe it is impossible for the filter perimeter to be adequately sealed so as to direct the blower air thru it. Most of the air will bypass the filter.

Yes, its a lousy design. It's also hard to figure out which direction the arrow should go in since the filter is so low in the cabin, should it point down or does the air come in below so should it point up? Very odd design.
At least its easier to install than on the Impala

Looks like an "afterthought" doesn't it? If the Impala installation is even harder, it must be nigh impossible!

The filter is actually at the front of the engine bay somewhere, you have to pull off the rubber at the base of the windshield. i had a mechanic do it, didnt want to touch it! I do my Cobalt's but when I was pulling down the glovebox the rubberband piece broke off, never to be seen again.
