Re: Cabin Air Filter

I check mine every 6mos and change them every 12, or as needed.

Been using TYC for some years for our KIA. The Jeep part # for the JGC is TYC800161P

You can find them around $7.00 at RockAuto.

A tad more expensive, but seems to handle "odoriferous neighborhoods" better, is the
FRAM carbon:
FRAM CF11183 Fresh Breeze Cabin Air Filter

Available at Amazon and some parts stores.
Perfect shove-in replacement.

I change yearly, but I live in an area with a lot of turkey farms, pig farms, cattle ranches, horse ranches, buffalo ranches, antelope ranches, and wandering skunks, where except for the last, the air very frequently "smells like money"

If you change it yourself, be sure to warm up the sides of the glove box to undo the stops, and also use a hair dryer or similar on the latch on the filter door cover on the left, as in colder temps it may snap and leave a whistle from leaking air. Luckily it is cheap and readily available.

The FRAM above is best but if you have a '14 and are in for service anyway you can get a new one by complaining of slight Diesel odor and referencing this TSB

To get this straight, you have a Hemi, but you complained to your dealer about diesel smell and got a free air filter? ! You da man!

BTW, if you do change the filter at about 15 degrees F and bust the latch on the filter door, the Part Number: 68079489AB

Re: Cabin Air Filter

I got the fram with arm & hammer but I honestly don't smell a freshness scent, in fact I get a brief whiff of mold or sourness. Maybe I got a bad one but doubt I'll get one again.

Re: Cabin Air Filter

Also if you unhook the glove box retractor, put a clip or something on it.. if you let go and it retracts back in the dash, you are in trouble.. Ask me how I know...

Re: Cabin Air Filter

There's an easier way going right above the glove box without detaching those things. Just remove the plastic right above and you'll see the vent to remove the filter. Less than 5 mins.

It doesn't take that much to fix it, just use a spring hook to grab it again. But best avoided.

I use a locking IBM spring hook, but you can also just run a heavy string thru the loop, because I guarantee the !@#$!@#$ thing will retract out of reach if you don't.

Selectric or even Teletype spring hooks available from a number of science sources, amazon, etc. can save your day in retrieving the thing. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find the really nice IBM locking/latching spring hooks anywhere online.
