Re: cabin air filter

Yeah you need to add the holder, goes under the air vent on the passenger side, right in the back of the hood / wiper area. $50 or so for the whole kit from justforjeeps i believe!

Re: cabin air filter

TURN OFF YOUR A/C BEFORE TURNING OFF YOUR JEEP PRIOR TO DOING THIS INSTALL!!!

I didn't turn mine off and it left the passage way open and I dropped a piece down the vent and never found it.

After the install it sounds like a plane is about to take off when I put it on high.

Re: cabin air filter

Well turn the heater off too. It closes the passage way off.

it feels like the same material as regular air filters, it is pretty sturdy
