Cabin Filter

I was wondering if my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee comes equipped with a cabin filter. I watched this
, and apparently some aren't equipped with them. Just want to get some heads up before I start taking things apart.

Thanks!!

even in that video he says "there were no grand cherokees that came with a factory installed cabin air filter"
so I'm confused as to what you are asking here

I installed one, got it off of amazon for like $50 for the whole kit, which you will need not just the filter. if you go to WJJeeps.com you can find the part number there then put that into the amazon search. DO NOT FILL IN YOUR VEHICLE INFO!!!! if you do it will kick you out of the part and you will have to go back to it. if however you put in that you have an 05 GC it will work. the kit works from 99-10 GC's but amazon says 05-10.

Put it in! When I replaced my evaporator I had decomposed leaves and crap around the bottom where it rotted away the core and caused a leak. After I replaced that the cabin filter was the very next thing I installed. After the purchase of the kit replacement filters are about $15 or so. Cheap insurance if you ask me.

Do it. Well worth the time invested and you can paint your faded cowl cover matte black while it's off. Maybe paint the wiper arms too.

I see you removed the wiper blades here. Nice work! Ordered the cabin filter kit from my local dealer (Genuine Mopar parts). $80 for the housing and filter. Not a bad deal!!! I'll be picking the kit up this afternoon.

You don't have to remove the cowl or wipers though. I just put mine in yesterday and just popped the rivets out from the middle over and pulled the cowl up enough for me to work in there.

The core you mean? Or the HVAC box? I can see exactly what the pics that WJWKXJZJ posted above shows, I just didn't remove the whole cover as I didn't have a lot of time to get it done.

And in response to what I think you are asking, no I cannot see either. I mean you can see the air intake but that's it.
