This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 2006-2010 Dodge Charger or Chrysler 300 sedan in cleaning or replacing the A/C system's cabin air filter element.

Owners of other Dodge or Chrysler vehicles such as the Magnum, Challenger, 300, Caliber, Journey, Avenger, Nitro, Durango, Grand Caravan, 200 and Town & Country minivan may also find this guide to be useful.

A few compatible replacement cabin air filters for the Dodge Charger with their respective part numbers include the following: NAPA # 4909, Purolator C35677, Driveworks DW-35677, and the Wix 24909.

No tools are needed to replace the cabin air filter. A wet/dry shop vacuum is useful for cleaning the existing filter.

Cabin Air Filter Element
The first steps are to open the hood of the car and move to the passenger side of the cowl located between the windshield and the engine bay.

Press down on the two clips on the black plastic cabin air filter access panel to release it from the rest of the cowl. Below the access panel, there is a black plastic flap that covers the filter element. Gently flip the cover down and towards the front of the car to reveal the white paper element.

Grip the edge of the old cabin air filter with your thumb and forefinger before sliding it out of the blower motor housing. Make a mental note of how the old filter was installed and look for the arrows indicating the air flow direction.

Check Air Flow Direction
If your old cabin air filter doesn't look too dirty, you can just tap out the large debris and clean it with a wet/dry shop vacuum before reinstalling it.

If your filter is dark grey or black and clogged with leaves, insects, dirt, dust, or hair, you should just replace it with a new cabin air filter element. A new cabin air filter ranges in price from about $10 to $20 at various retail or online stores such as Advance Auto Parts, NAPA Auto Parts and Amazon.com.

Slide in the cleaned or brand new cabin air filter back into the slot in the cowl with the air flow direction arrows pointing towards the rear of the vehicle.

Flip the smooth black plastic filter cover up over the edge of the element and push on it until you feel it click into place.

Finally, replace the ventilated access panel and push on the two clips until they snap securely in place.
