    I did it last summer very easy IMO

    I had to take out blower motor as some pieces fell in and I did not want to wreck it. Filters at oreillys are more than dealer in my experience. FRAM started making one in their arm and hammer line so check that out.

    I think filter looks very close either way it is flipped in fact I don't even think the mopar one said which way flow should go.

    looking at the door, air flow goes "down". so i figure the base of the filter should be at the bottom, with the filter part at the top.
    but whatever it is, just wondering if the filter in the pic was backwards. looks like base of filter is at the top, with the filter part at the bottom. wont catch too much that way.

    It is not like an air filter that would filter outside though it has no foam/rubber seal that you may be thinking of. I'll look and see what it says to help answer your question.
