Cabin air filter

Am I wasting my time looking for a AC cabin air filter on 2000 Cherokee. Does it even have one and where is it located?

It does the same thing a filter in your home heating/AC unit does. Filters out junk in the air. Alot of vehicles dont even have them. some have the slot but wont put the filter in.

I've seen this doen to TJs with a K&N type filter under the cowl grill. It's removeable on TJs. I wonder if there's a way on XJs.

By the way, this would be awesome for dusty locals. I spent years in Southern California in the dusty deserts (and mountains). Dust gets EVERYWHERE!!!! This includes your lungs. It seems like tablespoons of dirt come out onto tissues. A cabin filter was moot on the CJ, but XJs have a fighting chance at keeping the dust out.

One of my favorite "ah-ha" moments was when I realized a paint brush is great for getting the dust out of the cracks and crevises of dashboards. It would be great not to have that chore.

almost all road tractors have them they are very useful, never seen any on regular vehicles though.

If it has it, its behind the glove box, or thats where most are

Drop your glove box see if you see one back there just pops in and out usually 2 clips

the cabin intake is underneath the passenger side cowl. it's unreachable without cutting the cowl. there is no filter on it. however if you want to cut a hole in the cowl, you can put one on it--you can see it at the top of this pic
