I don't believe they do, although there is a place for one. My 2006 doesn't have one.

No PT came with the Cabin Air Filter but it's relatively easy to aid one.

Interesting. NO PT came with one? Was it an option only type of thing?

Thanks for the video.

NOTE to others: NEVER, EVER work on your car with your rings and watch on.

Not quite an option that you could order with the PT. Just something you could go to the parts counter and buy one if you wanted. You can find them on eBay or some owners bought filter material and made one themselves.

For the '01 you need the filter kit, later years are already setup for the filter. The kit has the correct housing to hold the filter that the '01 doesn't have. You can get filters at PepBoys but the kit is a dealer or eBay item.
From what I have read only European market cars came with the cabin filter.

Here's a similar one, only this is a carbon loaded filter, so that it will not just stop dust and dirt, but bad smells too.

I have one of these on order, when it comes in I'll do a shoot of the install and post it up here on the forums.

Cool Re: Do all PTs have a cabin air filter?

for the '01 you need the kit like this:
Chrysler PT Cruiser 01-09 CABIN Air Filter, New Mopar | eBay

for the rest you just need the filter, which can be found at the local autoparts store usually.

I thought all cars with aircon had to have a filter to stop the heat exchanger from clogging with crud.
