This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation 2015, 2016 and 2017 Chrysler 200 sedan in cleaning or changing the engine air filter element for the Tigershark MultiAir 2 SOHC 2.4 liter inline four cylinder motor.

Owners of other Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM or Fiat vehicles such as the 300, Pacifica, Town & Country, Avenger, Charger, Challenger, Journey, Dart, Durango, Magnum, Grand Caravan, Fiat 500, Fiat 124 Spider, Grand Cherokee, Renegade, Wrangler, Compass, Liberty, Patriot, ProMaster, 1500 and C/V Tradesman minivan may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A few compatible replacement engine air filters with their part numbers are as follows: Fram CA11206, Wix 49022, Ecogard XA6200, AEM 28-20472, Hyundai 28113-1R100, Hastings AF1502, Purolator A16200, Mahle LX3300, K&N 33-2472 and Pentius PAB11206.

The only tool needed to access and change the engine air filter element is a Phillips head screwdriver (or an 8mm socket with an extension bar and a 1/4" drive ratchet).

3 Screws Removed
The first two steps are to open the hood and then move to the left (passenger) side of the engine bay.

The engine air filter box is located just behind the passenger side headlight assembly and in front of the coolant overflow tank.

Remove the three screws on the left side of the engine air box cover by turning them counterclockwise with a Phillips head screwdriver or an 8mm socket with an extension bar and a 1/4" drive ratchet.

Set the three screws aside in a safe place.

Clean With Vacuum

Clean Out Bottom Half



 

Pull the old air filter out of the bottom half of the air box.

Inspect both sides of the old air filter.

If the old filter is dark grey or black and clogged with dirt, dust, sand, leaves, insects, hair, pollen, soot, twigs and other debris, it should be replaced with a new element.

I recommend buying the Fram CA11206 engine air filter since it has excellent reviews on Amazon.

If the old filter is relatively clean, just tap out the large debris and remove any fine dust with a vacuum cleaner.

If your vacuum cleaner has a crevice attachment, clean out any sand or debris in the bottom half of the air box.

Lower the new filter in to the bottom half of the air box with the pleats facing down and the rubber gasket facing up towards you.

Lower the air box cover and line up the three tabs with their corresponding slots on the right (driver) side of the bottom half of the air box.

Slide the three tabs in to their slots and close the air box cover.

Replace Three Screws

Tighten Clockwise

Engine Air Filter Replaced
Replace the three screws by tightening them in the clockwise direction with the Phillips head screwdriver.

If you have trouble re-inserting the screw at the front left corner of the box, try loosely attaching the screw to your screwdriver with some painter's tape.

Try to avoid over tightening the three screws to prevent from cracking the plastic air box housing.

Make sure that the two halves of the air box are flush together with no part of the new filter visible at the edges.
