Default Cabin air filter

31,000 miles back I installed a cabin air filter on my then nearly new PT. With 31,000 miles the filter, it looked pretty dirty, and I replaced it. I will change filter next at 25,000 of use. The new filter includes a housing, with no 'leaf strainer'. New filter comes with installation instructions, and costs about $17.00 from local Chrysler dealer. If you do your own service, plugs plug, plug wires, oil filter, and stuff like that, you should be able to do this job.

I installed a cabin air filter on my '03 Turbo. I purchased the filter and housing online for about $20 (incl. shipping). When I went to install it, the filter in fit the housing that was already on the car. Does anyone know where to get a replacement filter without the housing?

Some time ago on this forum it was said that a Briggs & Stratton 5083 or equal tractor filter will and DOES fit . I installed one in my '02 with no problem. I also bought one as a spare and will replace the cabin filter in the '06 when needed. I think I paid between $10 - 12 for it at Home Depot.

This issue is exactly what I found with certain Honda motorcycle air filters. Honda wants to sell you (for $25) a whole plastic sub-assembly into which a small filter element is heat staked in place. Screw them! I cut out the old filter element, bought the nearest size K & N. A little cutting, a little glue, and it's been in use over five years now. Sounds like I may need to do the same here?

Thanks for the suggestions ... by the way it seems strange that the definition indicated that the cabin filter I purchased with the housing was "an OEM Chrysler part" even though there was NO cabin air filter offered for an '03 PT Cruiser when the car was purchased new!

[:I]another quirk with the PT.... My '03 had the housing already installed minus the filter??? I bought one a few years back & changed 2x's,,nice to know about the Briggs & Stratton filter because DC rips us off at dealer for $40.00 ouch!! another quirk is mine had wiring for 2nd horn minus horn? I also bought one and popped it in,,looks like they chopped stuff out to save $$$ Hopefully nothing important //?? is missing in the engine or safty features!!! [8)]MJB

The cabin filter was export only; no domestic cars came with it but you can add it. The second horn was deleted the second or third year for cost savings, but it was cheaper to not change the wiring.
They have added/removed a number of things over the years, including cargo nets, lock cylinders, armrests, rear sway bar and other things. There are also different trim levels.

Talking Re: Cabin air filter

I want everybody to tell me the truth even if it costs them their jobs. I went to the local dealer and the parts guy after finding the filter, sans housing, looked up the price as $60.00 plus tax and immediately headed back to the store room to replace it on the shelf. Good thinking Partsguy.
