2014 Grand Cherokee Cabin Filter

I have noticed that these cabin filters in the Grand Cherokee get dirty a lot faster than the 20k recommended replacement, by 10k mine are black and full of crap, just replaced the second at 20k. I don't live in a dusty environment just normal suburbia so I guess that is just normal. Anyway I saw the below TSB and the updated filter they are recommending for the diesel for diesel smell, the updated filter is full of charcoal. I don't have the diesel I have the V8 but I have noticed sour smell sometimes probably all the leaves and water laying around in there some where. So I purchased the upgraded OEM charcoal filter this time thinking it may help some of the general smell the HVAC can pull in. It was $30 shipped which was not much more than the paper OEMs if I remember correctly. Just passing on for the next time you buy them maybe one to consider.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Cabin Filter

Last one I bought was $10 off Amazon...you don't need to pay big bucks for these filters and it takes just a couple minutes to change them.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Cabin Filter

Ok, I want to replace my cabin filter. I tried to squeeze the sides in to clear the tabs. I couldn't do it. My arms/ upper body was weakened by chemo and radiation about 4 years ago plus I'm 75 years old.

Can any of yall recommend a method that would allow me to force the sides in far enough?

Dan

One thing i would suggest first is to unhook that string on the right side that makes the drawer drop smoothly. When the drawer does let loose that thing can be brooken, i did that the first time.
Try unhooking one side first that part is usually not hard, it is the second one thats harder. You can try using something to pry on it just be careful not to gouge or damage the look of anything around it. Good luck

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Cabin Filter

Thanks. I already unsnapped the string. Alarmed me because it recoiled back into the darkness. Should it be retrieveable if I ever get the box loose?

I thought of trying channellocks or a small crow bar but haven't tried them yet.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Cabin Filter

My 2001 BMW (E38) 740i Sport came with charcoal activated cabin filters. It also had separate filters for recirculated air.
The combination of the two made it so there was rarely any funky smells coming (or staying) in the car.

Are the stock cabin air filters on the WK2 charcoal activated or not?

The stock ones are just paper. They came out with the charcoal in the tsb above to address diesel smell but it fits in any. There are other brands in charcoal also. About $30 for the jeep ones and $20 for the other brands
