Re: Replace Cabin Air Filter --- Just Do It!!!

Most of the videos tell you to unhook the tensioner cable on the right outside of the glovebox. This is not necessary, and can create a problem if not done carefully. I just take out the shelf at the top and pop open the filter cover. Replace the old with a new filter, snap the cover back in place, and replace the shelf. Done in less than a minute. Easy peasy.
Here's a video that shows removing the glovebox, but you can get the shelf out without doing that, or taking off the cable. The filter cover is accessible by just removing the shelf.

Re: Replace Cabin Air Filter --- Just Do It!!!

Thanks jacko15. That gave me the incentive to give it a try. Though the glove box is very easy to remove, I removed the tray only as you suggested. It was nice to see that MY15 does not have the center tab on the filter door which requires the press of a flat head screwdriver in the video. My filter is filthy, so over to FilterHeads.com next.

Re: Replace Cabin Air Filter --- Just Do It!!!

Looking to purchase the charcoal cabin air filter. Was excited to find that the Ebay seller who has them listed for relatively cheap (Mopar 68260792AA | eBay) Just so happens to be a 5 minute drive from my home. Going to give them a call on tuesday and see if I can pick it up in person rather than waiting for it to be shipped

Just replaced the filter using the above method. I now see that I do have the center tab requiring an upward push from a flathead screwdriver. It just was not snapped in at the factory.

Re: Replace Cabin Air Filter --- Just Do It!!!

Swapped my air filter with the Carbon one for the diesel. Took all of 5 minutes to do. Utilized the shelf method as well.

Such an easy swap that would have cost 5x more if done at the dealership.

Re: Replace Cabin Air Filter --- Just Do It!!!

I replaced mine with another OEM one from the dealer. $38 including tax. Got the one before online for less than that.

$38 is a rip off for the crappy OEM part. Will get a 3rd party upgrade next time.

Re: Replace Cabin Air Filter --- Just Do It!!!

Ordered both cabin and engine air filters and had it priced relatively okay at the dealer. I gave the incorrect cabin air filter model with no charcoal and only realized when I was replacing it. The one I was removing already has charcoal and was way heavier than the regular filter.

Shaking my head I picked up the non-charcoal version without even thinking about it when I should have known having a diesel engine to begin with. Good thing I didn't open the new filter yet. Will just go back to the dealer next weekend and order the right one. Darn.

Oh, and yeah I used the shelf method. No need to remove the whole glove box.

Re: Replace Cabin Air Filter --- Just Do It!!!

Go with the k&n cabin filter. It's washable and you'll never need another filter.

I had K&N Engine Air Filters on both of my vehicles for years. I finally took them off because they were a PITA to "maintain". After you remove them you have to wash them. This requires a special cleaner. It's not cheap either. (The bottle they give you with the filter lasts for just 1 or 2 cleanings). Then you have to rinse it and let it dry. No biggie in 115F Arizona Sunshine with 4% relative humidity. But if you live in the rainy, humid south you're going to wait. Then you have to re oil it with yet another specialty product from K&N that's expensive. It's also messy.

Finally you can reassemble your air filter and be on your merry way. All of this as opposed to simply tossing the dirty one, and replacing it with a new one. After a while the whole process gets old. Nothing against K&N. Their products are good, and work as intended. They just take something simple, and turn it into a project. I've got enough of those by accident. I don't need to go around making more for myself. Also, when you factor in the cost of the filter itself, along with the "Cleaning & Oiling Kit", you are saving nothing over using disposable filters, that actually are proven to trap smaller particulate.
