New member - New to Jeep. Need help with basic maintenance.

Hi. I'm new to Jeep. Need guidance with replacement of engine air cleaner filters and "in cabin" air conditioner filters. I have a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with 33,000 and I want to replace these filters. I have done this and much more on cars in the past, but nothing in the past 10 years, and with all the changes to the computer systems/electronics of vehicles today, I didn't want to make a "stupid" mistake that ends up costing a fortune. Any guidance on how to replace these filters? Special tools (Torx, etc). Where are the in cabin filters?

Thanks much.

The air filter is simple. Your call if mopar or aftermarket, K+N does make a drop in.

The cabin filter is behind the glove compartment and is quite simple to replace.
Google or YouTube for instructions since I dunno if the '14 is exactly the same as the '12. There are higher carbon or carbon and baking soda aftermarket ones available such as the Fram Fresh Breeze.
