2005-11 Corvette cabin air filter replacement

 

The C6 Corvette has many features to aid in the comfort of the driver, and this makes the car an ideal long distance or daily driving vehicle.  As a result, many C6 Corvettes are put into daily use, and they require more maintenance than cars that see occasional weekend duty.

The engine air filter is usually high on the list for inspection.  The car should be able to breathe freely for optimal performance and fuel economy.  But what about the driver?
