Re: Changing Cabin Filter

As far as I can tell the original Mopar filter is just paper.

I looked at mine a few months ago and the best I can remember it didn't look white like plain paper. It was either extremely dirty or something else.

A new Mopar cabin air filter is bright white. If it looks grey it is dirty.

Re: Changing Cabin Filter

Can someone please provide some visuals? This seems pretty self explanatory, however, I can't seem to find the suckers. I've tried pushing and pulling on whatever I can see, but it's just not obvious to me. Unless there is a design difference between the 2011 and 2012 GC and accessing the cabin filter. Thank you.

I changed the cabin filter today, it was actually pretty easy.

The filter is located behind the glove compartment

To get to the filter you will have to push in the 2 side tabs on the sides of the compartment. This will allow the box compartment to drop down, there are hinges at the bottom and a wire that will keep the whole thing from dropping.

Re: Changing Cabin Filter

Thank you. So the entire glove box compartment isn't suppose to drop down to access the filter? That's how I read the instructions from the first post.

Re: Changing Cabin Filter

You only have to completley remove the glove box if you replace the stock filter with one of my soon to be available Stainless Steel washable filters.

The stock filters do not contain active charcoal, neither do the wix replacement filters. The wix have a biocide in them to kill "odor causing bacteria"

In less than a months time I should have some viable replacements on the market that do have active charcoal in them. Check out this thread:

Re: Changing Cabin Filter

I can confirm that the Dodge Durango shares the same part number as our Wk2. I just ordered this as it was the cheapest I could find. It's not OEM but works great. The included instructions do not apply to our vehicles.
