Dodge Journey: Filter, particulate air

Description

Heating & Air Conditioning
Fig. 85: Filter-Particulate Air Description

Some models are equipped with a particulate air filter (1) that helps purify the outside air entering the HVAC housing. The filter is mounted in the passenger compartment, behind the glove box bin.

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

Removal

WARNING: Disable the airbag system before attempting any steering wheel, steering column or instrument panel component diagnosis or service. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery (ground) cable, then wait two minutes for the airbag system capacitor to discharge before performing further diagnosis or service. This is the only sure way to disable the airbag system. Failure to follow these instructions may result in accidental airbag deployment and possible serious or fatal injury.

WARNING: Always make sure the A/C-heater system is turned off and that the ignition switch is in the OFF position prior to servicing the particulate air filter. Never place fingers or other objects into the filter opening of the HVAC housing. Failure to follow this warning may result in serious injury.

3. Remove the particulate air filter (1) from the HVAC housing (2) by pulling the filter element straight out of the housing.

Installation

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