Replaced Cabin Filter

Smell was getting funky inside so decided to change the cabin filter....

Picked up one from local Jeep dealer:



and since I had time, I decided to remove everything compared to just lifting the cover.


Wiper Arm

And Spray fluid connection.

Put it aside and clean up....

Without the cover:


That is one dirty Filter:

Replace and button up in reverse order....


This is almost the same as the one Frankie did on his write up for the WK's, only difference is the cover removal.

Re: Replaced Cabin Filter

Just curious, how often are we suppose to replace the filters?

According to wjjeep.com

To keep cabin air quality at its best, filters should be replaced generally once a year or every 15,000 miles. Filters can be changed at 2 years/24,000 miles if mostly used in a cleaner environment (less driving on dusty roads and trails for example). Regularly changing cabin air filters also can reduce build-up of debris and bacteria on the evaporator core of your car’s air conditioning and ventilation system, maximizing the life of the system. Cabin air filters stop most airborne particles, and to some extent are capable of reducing mild odors.

I did mine about 1 1/2 year ago.....

Re: Replaced Cabin Filter

I changed mine once a year and you do not have to take off the entire bezel. I was able to replace it easily by removing only half the rubber gasket and sliding it in.

True, but since I had nothing to do for the rest of the day, I just decided to take it all apart and also to clean whatever is under the cowling.
