Re: Check your air filter

So if numbers are right, Sb filters may license a replacement drop in filter to me to re sell. Hope it works out.

Re: Check your air filter

Mine is the same. Just replaced it with a non oil AFE filter. Nice snug fit and breathes better.... and better filtration.

Cheers, Craig

Re: Check your air filter

Glad I found this thread. I need to check my filter. Will have to find where it is, am hoping it'll be obvious. After reading the thread it sounds like a redesign of the box might be in order, but that's on Jeep to figure out. Or an aftermarket provider.

In the meantime what's the common guy's solution for this? Check/replace with OEM every 5K or so? Maybe sooner in rough conditions (vibration), or dirty air. Have to wonder, though, why would I want to go with another OEM filter if it's just going to split at some random future moment?

Or do I buy an aftermarket filter, and if so which one? It doesn't sound like K&N is an optimal choice given that it filters less. WK2 went with AFE (looks like part # 30-10253; AFE link, for reference:
Air Filters Direct Fit Magnum FLOW OER Pro 5R Air Filter;*Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel 2014 V6-3.0L (td) 30-10253 - aFe Power)

I live and work in urban environments but like to get mine into the dirt once in a while, so she isn't a pavement queen. Still, this Bay Area air is pretty dusty.

Thanks!

I bought two OEM replacement air filters after discovering the one from the factory had huge splits on the gasket. I didn't feel confident about repairing the gasket without vapors causing damage to the various sensors. There were no aftermarket options available at that time.

Anyway, I suggest buying two if you need to replace: one for immediate replacement and one for the inevitable future replacement.

That said, I have resisted checking the filter again in case that opening/closing that tight airbox fitting is stressing the dainty filter gasket. When you do check it, I suggest pulling the airbox toward the front of the vehicle (described here).

I would be interested in an aftermarket filter not from a performance perspective but from an engine longevity aspect. Better gasket, better seal: air filtration is especially important for diesels.

Re: Check your air filter

After seeing this thread, I was a little concerned about about this, even though after 4 months, I only have 120 miles on the odo. (I know; I need to start driving it more, or else sell it, as it just sets in the garage).

The front retainer clip had never been snapped in place on the housing, right from the factory. Removed the filter, and expected to see same a bad filter, but it was in perfect condition; soft and pliable rubber gasket-surround.

Build date on mine was end of July.

Re: Check your air filter

While at dealer for the P20EE error code, showed them the AIR filter, they swapped it under warranty no questions.

Maybe since the clip wasn't pressed in all the way, it didn't allow it to seat properly there for not allowing it to tear/rip. You should check to see if you have dust on the other side of the filter on inside of intake pipe

Was that the "Pro Dry S", part number 31-10253?

If so, has the butt dyno or eco-meter noticed any changes?

Hi mate, yes, that is the part number.

Haven't had a chance to do a dyno test. It did seem to improve the take off slightly. Whether that was actual or my imagination, I don't know.
As for fuel economy, if there is an improvement it wouldn't be much.

What I do like about the filter is piece of mind knowing that it is breathing better......and it will also assist with the planned GDE tune when it comes out.

Cheers, Craig

G'day again Craig.

I'm after an oil filter, and air filter as my replacement one is just as cracked around the edges as the original. (Dealer replaced it on warranty)
Obviously same batch, bloody hopeless.
I like the sound of yours......

Do you have a good source for air and oil filters in Oz?
Thanks in advance!
David
