Yea, pretty much every import (Asian) has a cabin filter like this. So anything with more than a bolt holding the cover on, is worse ☹️

I'm 62 years old. I don't think I've ever changed a cabin filter. EVER.
My current vehicles are a 2010 Dodge Dually, 2011 Jeep JK & 2015 Toaster Trailhawk.
Never owned an import before the Renegade either.

Asian cars have cabin filters?? Most vehicles over there don't have cabins or windows why would they need a cabin filter?
Most current production cars in the USA and those intended for the US market have filters. So does your Rene, my Trailhawk does.

My dad told me the same thing when I asked him to help me change mine this weekend, he thought I was crazy. But when we pulled it out it was black and had leaf particles, etc. I've had my car a year with 7,000 miles. He then proceeded to laugh and said "well maybe I should see if my truck has one!" It's a 2006, Low and behold his glove box has a sticker that says this vehicular is equipped with a cabin air filter and recommended changing is every year or 15,000 miles.

Changed the cabin filter Saturday. Took about 20 minutes (wasn't trying to set any speed records). Used a 3in wide plastic putty blade to work the end cap off. Torx bit for the rest of the fasteners.

Just changed mine too. 1 year/22k miles. Black and lots of tree schnitzel. Unfortunately, when you pull out the filter, the schnitzel crap gets scraped off so be careful. I had to vacuum the fan below of the junk that fell into it. Glad I'm not breathing that crap in now.

I wonder whats under the front cowl? Crap collecting causing rust? Time to get some tools out.

Did mine today. This video has you removing too much. Top 3 bottom 3 one on the side and the retaining screw.

T-25 torx a panel tool and a 5.5mm nut driver are the tools.

when you replaced yours did you use the after market filter that can take out voc's? That filter is impregnated with activated charcoal which can absorb those gases.
