[How To] Replace Your Jeep's Cabin Filter

Jeep Maintenance Tips

Cabin Filter Location

Easy Install

Most Jeep Wranglers, like mine, come off the factory line without the cabin filter. My Jeep is a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. In the eight years of owning my Jeep, I never put in a cabin filter. However, earlier this year I installed my first cabin filter.

Jeep Cabin Filter

Cabin Filter Purpose

The cabin filter or A/C air filter is designed to clean the air as it moves through your heating, air conditioning and ventilation systems. It can also remove allergens like pollen and dust.

Jeep Glovebox

Cabin Filter Location

The cabin filter is located right behind the glove box in the fresh air inlet. First, open glove box to take it out. Sometimes you may have to turn your recirculate knob to get access to the filter. 

Cabin Filter Removal and Replacement

Removal and Replacement

Then disengage the two retaining tabs that secure the two air filter access doors to the H-VAC housing. Open the two air filter access doors.

Remove the two particulate air filters from the air inlet housing.  You will need to pull them straight out one at a time.

Obviously skip this step if your Jeep doesn’t have a cabin filter like mine. Make sure you install the cabin filter in the proper direction. There should be an arrow on the filter showing which direction.

Then complete the steps in reverse. Close the access doors and secure the retaining tabs and put back the glove box.

Factory Recommendation

The factory recommendation is to change your cabin filter every 20,000 miles. If you go off road on dusty trails you might want to replace it every 10,000 miles.
