The Jeep Patriot was introduced in 2007. It was designed and built on Chrysler's C-segment platform (shared with the Dodge Caliber and Jeep Compass) according to Motor Trend Magazine. Although the Caliber and Compass received A/C filters across the board, not all models of the Patriot did. If your Patriot came equipped with an A/C filter, you can change it out in just a few minutes; no tools are required.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

  1. 1

    Remove your glove box door to access the A/C filter. Open the glove box, empty it and push the sides together to release the rubber stops from their hinges. Let the glove box door drop.

  2. 2

    Remove the A/C filter panel. You can identify the panel by looking for the inscription "Air Flow." Push the locking tabs on the side together to remove the panel.

  3. 3

    Remove the old filter. The filter is not mounted or bolted in; simply pull it from the compartment to remove it. It's not reusable; throw it away.

  4. 4

    Install the new filter. Slide the filter into the compartment with the arrows (on the filter) facing down. Slide it as far back as it will go.

  5. 5

    Replace the filter cover. Align the filter cover with the compartment edges and snap it back on.

  6. 6

    Raise the glove box to its normal position. Lift the glove box door, squeezing together the sides to set the rubber stops in the hinges.

Tips and warnings

  • The Jeep Patriot owner's manual recommends replacing the A/C filter every 12 months.
