I purchased the FRAM # CF10374 "Fresh Breeze" Cabin Air Filter for $15.97 + tax (via Amazon Prime).

Only took me about ten minutes (including vacuuming up debris & taking some iPhone snapshots) to install:

Haha, yeah I figured that out when I saw there were no bolts. I always get nervous just pulling on something to remove it.

Took me forever to get the filter cover back into place, I just couldn't get the little tab on top to slot in properly. Probably spent 5 minutes straight just on that.
Lucky you..the upper tab took me like 10 min seriously almost gave up. Haha. It was so cramped and i was laying on my back and i couldnt see anything. Haha

I just changed mine with a FRAM Fresh Breeze...this isn't exactly the most easy thing to do. My Caliber was so much easier to change. It was behind the glovebox which was very easily removable. Glad I don't have to change it all the time. Plan on doing mine about every 6 months.

I am moments away from replacing my filter, and in the same boat as xxwolfyxx... 2 years 5 months and just about 36k miles... I wonder how gross it's gonna be in there. Lol. I hate that the stupid little instruction manual fram includes is not even close to what you need to do... so glad I looked it up on the forums before attempting.

The instructions posted by 57chryslerdart are very good. Only thing I would add is, after you pull the access panel off there is a screw with a SMALL head that you need to remove to get to the filter. None of my sockets where that small. I used a 7/32 open end wrench to remove it. :wink:
