Default anyone know what this is?

Hi! I was hoping someone could help me. I have two PT's - an 03 Ltd, and an 04 Ltd. I was recently replacing the airfilters in both, and noticed underneath the airfilter, in the housing for the airfilter, is another small spongey filter - just a couple of inches big. In the 03 in particular, the filter is very dirty and needs replacing. But I can't seem to find anything about it. I've tried Kragen online and a couple of auto parts places, but I can't seem to even locate the name of the filter.

Anyone know what it's called and where I can get one (or two!) ?

thanks,
Matt

Take a look at this and see if it answers your question:

Still no idea were to get a new one, I can't find one anywhere. Has anyone replaced this? Where can i find one? Could I just take a spong and cut it to size?

Don't you have a dealer you can go to and ask about it. Take it with you to show them what your talking about. They can look it up on the parts micro-fish.

Other than then, go to Wal-mart and buy a piece of sponge the same texture as what you have and cut out pieces for now and future use.

Chrysler dealers few and far between right now! Anyhow, I did find one, and found the part - although it took them some time to. Now I have it, i'll pass on the part number should someone in the future be looking and find this thread: 05066076AA - it was a touch over $4.

thanks
