Approx replacement time took .25 of a beer.

The replacement Mopar Cabin Air-Filter costs approx $27.00 dollars total including shipping. I’m sure you can get them for less with a little research.

*Beware, dealerships typically charge $50-$70 labor/material for this replacement. It’s far too easy to pay that premium IMO.

Mopar Part # 68301863.

It is recommended by Jeep to have it replaced at approx 20k-30k miles. I replaced mine today and I have 30k miles on the ODO.

Okay, now for the fun:

Step 1 - Locate your glove box and open it:

(It’s dirty, don’t judge me)

Step 2 - Locate the Soft Open Support located on the LEFT side of the globe box.

Push UP until your hear a loud click, once you’ve heard the click pull OUT AWAY from the glove box GENTLY.

Move the soft open support up and out of the way as shown below:

Step 3 - Locate Retainer Tab at the top of the globe box.

With your left hand hold and slightly push the glove box towards the closed position and with your right hand push UP on the tab. Once the tab is pushed UP your glove box can be removed freely.

Step 4 - Locate the HVAC Access Door, Pinch Clip and remove:

Step 5 - Remove Cabin Air-Filter by slightly pinching and pulling. It’s accordion design will allow you to do this:

Step 6 - Grab your new Cabin Air-Filter and insert into the empty compartment you just pulled the old one out of. AGAIN it’s is OKAY to pinch/bend it to get it in the compartment due to its design.

Step 7 - Reinstall the HVAC compartment Access Door. On the LEFT of the Access Door there is a clip you must pinch (just like you did when you removed it) AND on the right side of the Access Door there is male end that must be inserted into a cutout around that corner. You WILL be able to accomplish by feel as you cannot see it physically.

Step 8 - Reinstall glove box by reversing removal steps:

Line up male ends on the BOTTOM of the glove box with cutouts:

Locate and press UP on Retaining Tab and slightly push glove box to closed position. Now your glove box can rest freely as you reinstall the Soft Open Support.

Reinstall Soft Open Support by reversing removal process:

Slightly nudge glove box to the closed position and line up Soft Open Support male end to cutout/hole on glove box.

Insert male end into cutout/hole and press DOWN until you hear a loud click.

And there you have it! All finished! Super easy wasn’t it?!

Great write up. After 1.25 years I just did the cabin and engine filters. Easy but scary since I’ve never worked on a car or Jeep.

I went ahead and purchased one from the dealership today for about $20. It took 2 minutes and no tools to change it. I wish all of them were as easy to change.
