cabin air filter

Just bought a 2011 JGC with 2300 miles on odometer. Have an AC odor and was trying to locate the cabin air filter. Any idea? How hard is it to replace?

Thanks,
Red jeep

Re: cabin air filter

welcome to JG. i dont think they come with one from the factory. iirc it is behind the glove box in the wk2. make sure you buy a filter with carbon if you want it to remove odor. otherwise it will only remove pollen and dust.

Re: cabin air filter

^per above, it is right behind the map shelf in the glove compartment, you only need to remove the map shelf not the whole glove box. Some threads below with pics.

Question Re: cabin air filter

I remember there was an earlier debate about this, but I'm not sure there was ever a definitive answer... Do the vehicles leave the factory with or without an installed filter?
