Where is the air filter on a 2001 Saturn L200?
It's under the flat-looking large plastic cowling on the left side when looking from the front.
The blower motor is located under the windshield cowl. You will need to remove the wiper blades, the plastic cowl assembly. Careful with the cowl, they break easily. There is plastic cover to to the right of the cabin air filter. Under that cover you'll find the blower motor. Saturn tech here by the way.
The air bag electronics are very sensitive. If you're asking this question you probably don't have the skills to be messing with the steering wheel assembly. If you mess with it the air bag can deploy causing YOU serious injury and the expense of replacing the air bag. Just take it to a professional, let them be responsible.
take the glovebox out and it is sitting behind it Alternative answer Check under the hood, behind the engine. Along the back side of where the hood normally rests is a grille. Just barely in front of the grille is a black plastic door that lifts up. CAREFULLY lift it (it breaks easily) to reveal the cabin air filter.
