DIY video on changing cabin air filters on the JK

I had seen a few write up on the web about changing the cabin air but not a video so I did one for those that wanted to see how its done.

I've been running them for a couple of years on my JKs. Just took them out this morning. Need to get new ones, but for $25 I'm debating whether it's worth it during winter. Mine were black when I took them out so they definitely stop some junk from coming through.

People should be careful to seat these properly so that they don't get sucked into the lower part of the fan box. Also, be careful not to stress the plastic doors when your arm is in there.

P.S. these were $12 at the dealership and $25 at NAPA last time I checked.

Nice video!

I also would love to see a diesel in a Jeep Wrangler. I love my 2011 VW Golf TDI.
On the filters, some companies also make carbon activated filters which also cut down on smells coming in from the outside.
Had some of these in my new Camaro that were quite effective. I'll probably add these next spring due to old age allergies that
I have. Of course how effective are they really in a soft top Jeep? As soon as I can the top is open at least in the sun rider
Position.

Its more for the evaporator in my opinion. Keeps it clean as a whistle.
