Cabin Air Filter
 
Did you know we had a cabin air filter? I didn't. There is no mention of it in the manual that I could find. See here: http://www.wk2jeeps.com/wk2_cabin_air_filter.htm . I had a look and sure enough, there it was. Mine had quite a bit of sand in it from a recent beach mishap.

check this out......
I posted this in the diesel section of this forum, but probably more relevant to the Aussie section...

I checked with them (Eziautoparts) today, for this response....part email quoted.

"Links to the parts are as follows:

WA5135 - http://www.eziautoparts.com.au/wesfi...er-wa5135.html - $20.40
WCO163 - http://www.eziautoparts.com.au/wesfi...er-wco163.html - $16.70
WCF203 - http://www.eziautoparts.com.au/wesfi...er-wcf203.html - $29.25
WACF0154 - http://www.eziautoparts.com.au/wesfi...-wacf0154.html - $17.55.

We donít have these filters in stock but Wesfil has stock. I am ordering from them today so, if you want to purchase and order before midday, I can have them in the mail to you either tomorrow afternoon or Wednesday morning."

I will order a cabin filter and spare fuel filters from them. For now I'll stick with genuine air filter and oil filter.
John

and this....

I ordered a cabin filter @ $17.55 and 2x fuel filters @ $29.25/ea from them just now. Total price inc postage was $90.75. Was a very easy transaction over the phone.
Pretty reasonable I thought and I'll check out the quality and make a decison on the air and oil filters.
Thanks Swampthing1962 !! for the original info.
John

At the last service of my wife's Honda Civic, I asked that the cabin filter (pollen filter) be replaced. The helpful service guy said he would be happy to do it but he would have to charge me $90. I opted to wait. Eziauto Parts have a Wesfil for $25.20.

Bought mine on ebay an put it in over the weekend.

After a year the old one was completely black and have noticed a big improvement in the qaulity of air since changing.

I vacuumed my car on the weekend and thought I check out the filter.....gotta hand it to the pleb who factory installed it. It has a very clear arrow pointing down to install properly, naturally when I removed the cover the arrow was pointing up with all words upside down. Don't think it makes any difference though.

After a year roaming the streets of Brisbane it had a little dust and some very fine plant stems (probably off a tree). The remaining part was still white so I gave it a bit of a shakedown on concrete and put it back in.

Pulled mine out today to check that the filter I got was the right one....yep it is and yep mine was in upside down as well.....
After 6 months there were bits of grit and dust but mostly stained black. Used the same tactic - knocked on concrete and put back in (upside down).
I was too mean to put the new one in - I'll check again around December and maybe give it a Christmas present.

Ok, so the guy on the Export production line who installed our cabin filters was dyslectic....

Perhaps he figured the steering wheel is on the wrong side of the car so it goes the filter should be upside down.....I'm reaching!

This is bazaar!

Ok folks let's have some fun!

So far we have 3 upside downers! Let's have a show of hands........

Check your filter and post up whether yours is right way up or upside down. You never know, the tally could surprise us all, it may even show us the meaning of life or.......why Jeep has proven to be so slack!:D
