Interior Cabin Filter

Does anyone know if any of the Renegades come with an interior cabin filter? I've tried looking in my manual and online and can't find anything on this subject.

If you look at maintenance schedule in the manual You'll find that there is cabin filter periodical inspection/replacement.
It shouild be behind the glove compartment (didn't check it) like in Fiat 500L (and many other cars).

I believe it's behind the glove box. That said, I cannot figure out how to remove the glove box.
Found some you tubes on other Jeep models but it doesn't come out of the Renegade like it does
on a Cherokee for example.

Since the above link doesn't work, does anyone else know for sure where the filter is? If under the
glove box how is the glove box removed? It was simple to remove on the Honda Fit I just sold.

A dealer is probably going to charge over $100 to change it.

This is what I received from Renegade Tech.

The filter should be replaced at least once a year or every 24,000 km (15,000 miles), and checked if the heating and A/C system performance seems lower than expected. The cabin air filter is labeled with an arrow (2) to indicate the direction of air flow through the filter.

Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable. If equipped with an Intelligent Battery Sensor (IBS), disconnect the IBS connector first before disconnecting the negative battery cable.


Remove the glove box. (Refer to 23 - Body/Instrument Panel/GLOVE BOX, Instrument Panel/Removal and Installation) .



Release the retainer (1a) and remove the cover (1b) for the cabin filter.







NOTE: Make note of the air flow direction (1b).
Remove the cabin air filter (1a) from HVAC housing by pulling the filter element straight out of the housing.



INSTALLATION



NOTE:
The cabin air filter is labeled with an arrow to indicate air flow direction through the filter. Make sure to properly install the cabin air filter. Failure to properly install the filter will result in the need to replace the filter sooner than required by design.





NOTE: Make note of the air flow direction (1b).
Install the cabin air filter (1a) into the HVAC housing.




Install the cabin air filter cover (1b) onto the HVAC housing (2) and engage the retaining clip (1a).


Install the glove box. (Refer to 23 - Body/Instrument Panel/GLOVE BOX, Instrument Panel/Removal and Installation) .


Connect the negative battery cable. If equipped with an Intelligent Battery Sensor (IBS), connect the IBS connector.

I'll work on this. I need to add pics, but the glove box housing has to be removed by taking off the side close out panel, removing a screw then removing three screws on the bottom and opening the glove box and removing three screws on the top.
