    The air box on the 2.4 is very hard to get open. Located on the passenger side, it frustrated me to no end, plus I broke a couple of the tabs on the side of the box as I worked on it. Then I found the auto parts stores didn't carry the filter. I cleaned out some debris and used my compressor to clean the filter and re-installed it.
    If anybody has the trick to get the air box open, let us know !
    Here is a break down of the air box assembly.

    Here I am again complaining about the air filter.
    Over the weekend it was time for the oil & filter change. I decided to look at the air filter as it's been 40,000 miles since it was replaced the last time.
    The air box had leaves and dirt in the bottom, so that was vacuumed out. The filter was dirty, so off I went to the local auto parts store.
    Nope ... no filter in stock for the 2.4 engine. They called another store which showed one in stock, but they didn't have it anyway.
    In order to cut down on wasted time, I just drove to the nearest Chrysler dealer and got one. I think I was held hostage over the price ( $29.00 ) but I had no choice. No auto parts stores stock them !
    I asked about the cabin filter and they wanted $40.00, so I passed on that.
    Guess I need to search on-line for a cheaper alternative.

    BTW, the last time I had the filter replaced was at the dealer we bought the car from. It was in for a recall and I asked to replace both filters.
    The air filter cost $11.50 and the cabin filter cost $26.00.
    I think the dealer I bought from yesterday were crooks, but the story is long and I won't go into it now.

    Have you tried Amazon or Rock Auto? They're usually substantially cheaper and if you have prime, 2 day shipping and free returns if it's not right. Even paying the shipping from Rock Auto is cheaper than the dealer and they usually ship pretty quickly too.

    Shopped both.
    Just deciding now on which brand to purchase. Amazon seems to have Ecogard filters they push. Inexpensive chinese made filter. Good or bad, I don't know. Yes, they have other filters, like Purolator, but the selection is limited for my air filter. Cabin filters are available, more then the air filter.
    Rockauto has more brands listed, like a Wix brand I haven't seen elsewhere.

    Problem is, buying online means the filter may not fit and then the return process is a pain.

    I'll post again when I decide what to buy, and from whom.

    Denso is OEM for the cabin air filter and fits. About $6.

    Actually, Mopar is the OEM filter for our cars. Denso is a Japanese manufacturer of automotive products, mostly for Japanese vehicles.

    FYI, I purchased OEM filters from RockAuto, they came with Mopar packaging and part numbers, so I know they are correct.
    If you don't need it right away, the on-line retailers provide everything we need at a reasonable cost.

    Mine is a 2011 and it was obvious that the cabin filter was the original.
    It said "Denso" on it, and also had the pentastar logo on it. Replacement Denso with the same part number does not have the Chrysler logo on it. There is often more than one OEM supplier for certain parts. Also, Mopar parts are made by various companies, there is no Mopar factory that produces these parts. It's very common practice for an OEM to mark a part with the customer's logo.

    You are correct.
    Most filters are made by a select group of manufacturers that package specifically for the vehicle brand.
    I pulled out the Mopar air filter and noticed it said "Made in Canada".
    The cabin filter was a Purolator brand, made in china.
    The cabin filter was very dirty too. This would be the fourth one I have replaced.
