I installed a cabin air filter for the first time on my 2004 tracker ZR-2 at 40,000 miles. I bought one off of ebay for $20 instead of paying the $70 chevy wanted... Well i forgot all about the cabin air filters i installed and 20,000 miles later i installed a new set. Well let me tell you! them cabin air filters were solid black.. So thats the air we breathe... And in 20000 miles my cabin air filters looked Worse than the air filter the engine breathes with.... I was shocked. im glad i replaced them.. I had no idea them air filter actually work.. Once again i bought a set off of ebay...

Yes, the 2001 Chevy Tracker does have a cabin filters on the passenger side of the vehicle. The filters are located behind the glove box (aka glove compartment). I'll do my best to explain the procedure for filter replacement. Even the illustrations that came on the instructions with the cabin filters were of little help.
Open the glove box to reveal the compartment. Empty the contents of the compartment to a convenient area. At this point, I consider this initial opening of the glove box to be the "normal" level of openness for the compartment.
To open the glove box to the next level, you need to slightly squeeze the compartment inward (on both sides at the same time) to release the glove box to the next level. At this next level the glove box has swung open to the floor.
Now, look at the area you just revealed from behind the glove box compartment, you will see a metal bar. Just behind that metal bar you will see a narrow plastic cover. This cover is like an upside down "L". It has two protruding "rectangular" type knobs that extent from the long leg side of the "L" cover.
Above the upper knob, (this would be the short leg of the "L" cover) you should be able to get your fingers into the space and pull up on that portion of the cover to release it.
The long side of the "L" cover should be a bit easier to release once the upper side has been released.
Once this "L" cover is removed it should reveal the cabin filters (there are two). The filters seem to be stacked one on top of the other. Replace the two filters with the tab on each filter facing you (the tab on each filter when stacked correctly will slide into the back of the "rectangular" type knobs of the "L" cover).
Replace the "L" cover and make sure it's locked into it's upper and lower positions.
Begin closing the glove box. Remember, you will have to squeeze both sides of the glove box compartment to push it back into the opening and it's "normal" open position.

When I bought my '02 Tracker there were no cabin filters in it! Apparently the previous owner had removed them. As a result the evaporator core (air conditioning core) totally clogged up, resulting in practically zero air flow. Replacement of the evaporator core was $750. There should be 2 filters one on top of the other with tabs protruding from the filters that 'click' into place

Shop gave me a really good price for repairing my ac on my Tracker. Compressor clutch crapped out and that means a new compressor on these cars. Quote is for complete "compressor kit" from NAPA that includes compressor, accumulator/drier, oil and refrigerant with labor and a 1 year warranty for $700. I have to take the deal - I love this car too much and can't find any replacement I can live with. 140K miles and I want 60K more, so I'll make the appointment.
