Replace Cabin Air Filter --- Just Do It!!!

I just decided to replace the cabin air filter in my JGC 2011. Easy to do yourself. You pop the glove compartment off (wire thing on the side easily disconnects, then two side stops/catches and it is off) then remove the little shelf and the air filter cover. There is a video on youtube.

Anyway, been 34 months and less than 23,000 miles and it was very DIRTY even though haven't been off road or anything. I plan on replacing it every 12 months from now on... Ordered a filter online for convenience but will ask for the part price at the dealership when there for my next oil change. I ordered my from an eBay listing which was the cheapest online price.

Just thought I'd pass this along........

Re: Replace Cabin Air Filter --- Just Do It!!!

I changed mine at about 30,000 miles and it sure needed it. It is a little different than years ago when tree seeds would blow in my face from the dash vents.

Re: Replace Cabin Air Filter --- Just Do It!!!

Had I known how filthy the filter had gotten, I would have replaced it a long time ago. It was pretty blackened with dirt and a few little tiny twigs. Every 12 months from now on...... I shoulda taken a photo of it. Yuck.

Re: Replace Cabin Air Filter --- Just Do It!!!

I bought a cabin air filter and an air filter for under the hood from SteveWhit Motors on ebay and have them sitting in a box for the last month. I'm at 25k miles and 2 years and 3 months so thanks for this post. I'll have to get around to changing these filters.

Re: Replace Cabin Air Filter --- Just Do It!!!

I just changed the cabin air filter, and the engine air cleaner filter. Both needed it after 26k miles. Removing the glove box was not necessary to replace the cabin air filter on the WK2; the video is for the Durango, but the rest of the video instruction helped.

Re: Replace Cabin Air Filter --- Just Do It!!!

Yea, I replaced mine about a week ago. Getting that little door open was tricky at first, but it was an easy task. And I scored the replacement filter on Amazon for ten bucks, too.
