Customer Question
Wondering if my 2011...

Wondering if my 2011 Enclave has a cabin filter. I have lowered the glove box as videos show but see no cover for a filter opening. Is this an option? Mine is a CXL 2, thought it had about all the options.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Buick. The Buick Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

Just what I said removed glove box but see no cover for a filter, just a black piece of plastic held together with a screw on the top and bottom of the plastic piece.

Unfortunately, not ever version of these vehicles were equipped with the Cabin Air Filter. If equipped, it should be behind the glove box. I've wrapped up a small PDF showing location and how to replace. If yours does not look like the PDF, then unfortunately, your's does not have a cabin air filter. There were no alternate locations for the filter. Download the PDF file here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mty05io0xcvuzr1/buick-cabin.pdf?dl=0
