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

Are there any outward signs that this filter needs replacing? I don't mind popping open the compartment to check. I was just curious if there is a smell or something.

That's very subjective but if u r in traffic around Diesels or other heavy odors and recirc doesn't greatly reduce or eliminate the odor that's a sign. Mustiness that wint go away. Also, if you notice a reduction in air flow it is clogged....Best advice is to just regularly spend a few bucks and replace it every 20k ish....

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

I've had my 2014 JGC for about 15 months now, only has a lil' over 4000 miles. I went to go buy the FRAM cabin air filter, CF11183, and I can not find it anywhere online that I trust to buy from. Ebay is selling them for almost $65, and Amazon say it'll ship in 1-2 months, lol. I'm going to hit up my local stores. I haven't pulled the old filter to check it, but I'm just gonna swap it out due to age.

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

Is fram worth the extra money when other cabin filters are much cheaper in price??? Does fram do something different then the rest of them?

Yes! $23 for the Fram with Arm & Hammer baking soda and embedded carbon vs $10-16 for plain filters? No brainer for this guy at usage of 1 ish per yr.

If they are dark/speckled looking that's the carbon. A&H is unique to the Fram I believe. Thwn theres the the WIX (p/n 24017) that has neither but has Bioshield 75 which is some microbiostatic coating to trap odors and allergens, blah blah...same mid $20's price.....

Keep in mind too that all these active compound type filters also have a shorter useful life...10-15k...probably good til 20k ish for basic particle filtration if not clogged but the active compound odor stuff is spent sooner.
