Cabin Air Filter Kit Install

2006 Jeep WK.

I bought a Mopar Kit on Ebay for less than $50.
It included the instructions, filter, housing, and push connectors.


Installation was very easy and took about 30 min. It is NOT NECESSARY to remove the wiper arm.


Remove rubber trim, lift pass. side valence, place something in opening to hold up valence, I used a paint can.


Reach inside and pull out original plastic housing. It pops out easily.
I broke off the center rosettes, they will not be needed again.


Insert new (empty) housing slightly toward driver side.
Slide housing to pass. side so clip on back of housing engages sheet metal opening at far pass. side. Center holes will now line up.


Insert plastic rivets/connectors from kit. They push in to place.


Insert filter, and filter cover. three slots at bottom of housing engage tabs on bottom of cover.
Top of cover openings engage clips on top of housing.
They fit together somewhat loosely. I taped date sticker onto top of housing and cover to keep it together tighter.



Replace valence and rubber trim, and you're finished. Very easy.


I'll change the filter yearly.
(Changed daughters cabin air filter in her Subaru after 4 years, what a terrible sickening mess.
We didn't realize it was an easy job. I suggest you check your cars too.)

I installed a kit last month. Very easy compared to my last car, where you had to lay upside down under the dash and install the interlocking filters together! PITA!

DRCracker, Great job on the cabin filter install instruction. Stuff like this is what makes this forum great. To take the time to photo and explain the install will be appreciated by so many viewers.

Is there not a factory cabin filter? And what is the part number for the kit?

surprisingly there is not. I opened mine up yesterday to check, and nothing there but the stock set up. I ordered my kit just now on ebay after reading this thread.

You can get this same basic kit from Fliterheads.com for under 30 with free shipping, just an FYI.

The XK has a different screen design than the WK. I looked at it for my mom's XK after she first got it, and I couldn't find a cabin air filter that would match it. I don't think they make one unfortunately....

I also had the Mopar kit and filter installed. It does filter out dust and pollen but NOT odors. Is that what I should expect??

No way you can avoid dead skunk smell no matter how hard you pinch your nose

Back to your original question though, looking at the material I'd say that it was designed to filter out particulates as opposed to smells. I hate it when you have a nice clean car, keep your windows up and have all this dust and grit on everyting. Main reason i got my filter.
