Use a shallow well socket,(either a 24mm or 1 1/4"), and a ratchet with an extension to remove the black plastic cap that is located in front of where you add oil. Once the cap is removed, you will notice that the filter element is attached to the cap. This just pulls off of the cap and the new filter snaps back on to the cap. Screw cap with filter back into motor block. All of this work can be performed from the top of the motor.

A 1997 Pontiac Sunfire has an AC Filter located in the cabin. The filter can be found behind the glove compartment and is used replaceable.

I've never had to change mine, but it's an in-line filter located near the gas tank.

The 2002 Pontiac sunfire does not have a cabin filter. The air flows freely either in fresh air or recirculation modes.
