I replaced mine yesterday. It was pretty dirty after my Moab trip. It was dusty on the trails.

Easy to replace.

So it came from the factory with a filter already installed? That's the debate.

Re: A/C Filter??

You DO NOT need to drop the entire glove box to replace the filter. I did it without removing it and had plenty of room. Open the glove box, pull the plastic cover above the glove box towards you. Once that is removed, you'll notice a black plastic cover above the glove box. Push the tab located on the left side of this cover towards the passenger side and it will swing open towards to passenger side. It will probably fall off its right hinge but that's ok, easy to put back in. Once this is removed you can see the cabin filter. It's pretty tight on the edges so I used my key and slid it in one of the side to remove the filter. Replace the filter then re-install that black plastic cover that swung open by first rehooking its right hinge back on then swinging it back to the drivers side, like closing a door. It should snap into place. Then reinstall the large cover by aligning the two white plastic tabs to the back of the glove conpartment and push forward until it snaps in....don't need to put too much pressure. That's it.

Re: A/C Filter??

Yep, vnbWK2's method works great! Only the top shelf of the glove compartment needs to come out. Photo how-to below. My filter was very dark grey after 10 months in relatively clean air around here.

Only drawback was the $42 Cdn cost plus tax at the only known supplier, a Mopar dealer. Filter is Mopar Part No. 68079487AA. It is about 10 inches square and an inch thick.

With photos, this took less than 15 minutes. Now that I know the method, it can be done in 2 minutes tops.

Re: A/C Filter??

Be good to find an aftermarket one.
Or better a carbon filter, or washable filter like a K&N

Thanks for the pics! My filter looked just as dirty as yours after one year.

Re: A/C Filter??

Thanks for the pics/DIY, very helpful. With the crappy air in LA, i like to change my filters frequently. Glad this one is nice and easy. Then again, my windows are almost always down, so no help there.

Re: A/C Filter??

I just replaced my cabin air filter... Got the filter at the dealer ~$37.

The filter in behind the glove box, there is two tabs on each side of the g-box to lower the glove box, then remove the letter tray, then remove the cabin filter cover....

Hope this helps...
