Just received 3 cabin air filters that I purchased off of EBay.* Paid $11.65 each from PartSense Warehouse.* The filter is labeled Parts+Plus, CAF9954, Replaces-*
Mighty......CAF2155; OE......68169308AA.
My Ram Pro dealer did not have this trapezoid cabin air filter and his part number was for a square filter.* You are suppose to change this filter every 20K miles. :eek:

In recirculate mode the cabin air is drawn into the system under the dash behind the glove box. You can get to it and see it by removing the lower center cup holder unit (the big piece). As I recall I didn't need to pull the glove box to access the door/flapper.

cup holder removal

Can you recall how you removed the cup holder to get access to the recirculating air inlet? I can't see any fasteners and would rather not break it trying to pry it loose. thanks

do you actually have to get in there to change out the CAF? I thought you get to the CAF from under the hood?

The cabin air filter under the hood filters air coming into the cabin from out side. If you check out this link

there appears to be a filter that will filter air that is recirculating in the cab.
There is no interior cabin air filter the part [URL=http://www.promasterforum.com/forum/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=6]#6 8169308aa[/URL] is the cabin filter at the outside firewall the image that is shown only shows a black hole and a filter off to the side. Look at this diagram for the part #6 in image [URL=http://www.promasterforum.com/forum/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=6]#6 8169308aa[/URL]

cabin air filter

I tend to agree with you that there is no filter for the recirculating air. It is certainly not accessible! This goes back to my original problem. How to get at the intake for the recirculating air and put a filter on it. I was able to lift out the cup holder and remove 4 screws which held the lower part of that center plastic shroud but couldn't get that shroud loose. Any suggestions?

Price disparity is rampant! Part number 230263 or FCA part #68169308AA
Are the cabin air filters that different to justify the huge price variability?
Or is it just gouging? $70 fleetfilter and $131 at mallwart....or $60 at Rockauto with internet discount......

I use the cheap e bay filters too. For me, changing them every other year is enough.

Make sure you are comparing apples to apples. The $60-70 unit from Rock Auto includes the frame. The $10-20 unit is just the filter.
