    Question Cabin Air Filter

    I can not locate the filter you describe. I have a 2000 T&C LXI. Do you have picks you can share?

    Thanks

    Welcome to the Forum Uddybay.
    The cabin air filter started on the 2001 model. There was some conversation that some had it - dealer installed - on earlier models but the first factory installed model was the 2001.

    This is from the 2001 FSM.

    I have a 2000 and the dealer pulled up a replacement part number, telling me it had one. Then I ordered one from Napa, and their system also showed one.
    But when I went to find the thing to replace it, IT WAS NOT THERE.
    So I do not know which ones if any 2000 models actually had one. Someone in a post I think said some 2000's did have the cabin filter, but only if you have the 3 zone controls with digital readouts.
    Somewhere there is more threads on this. Below might help.

    AIR FILTER
    DESCRIPTION
    A dust and odor air filter is standard equipment on
    models equipped with the three zone temperature
    control systems. The filter element is the
    same size as the front air conditioner evaporator to
    ensure ample filtering capacity. A removable door on
    the bottom of the front HVAC housing below the
    glove box provides easy access to the filter element
    for replacement. The filter should be checked and
    replaced at least once every 24,000 km (15,000 miles)
    and checked if heater-A/C system performance seems
    lower than expected.
    REMOVAL
    (1) Locate the air filter door on the bottom of the
    lower HVAC housing just outboard of the passenger
    side of the instrument panel center stack.
    (2) Slide the air filter door latch toward the rear of
    the vehicle until it engages the opened stop on the
    door.
    (3) Pull the air filter door straight downward to
    disengage it from the air filter opening of the lower
    HVAC housing.
    (4) Use your fingers to reach through the air filter
    opening of the lower HVAC housing far enough to
    grasp the air filter.
    (5) Pull the air filter straight down and out of the
    HVAC housing.
    INSTALLATION
    (1) Note the “Airflow” directional arrow imprinted
    on the foam seal around the frame of the air filter.
    This arrow should always be oriented towards the
    center of the vehicle.
    (2) With the air filter “Airflow” arrow properly oriented,
    carefully slide the filter fully upward into the
    HVAC housing through the air filter opening.
    (3) With the latch still positioned against its
    opened stop, reinstall the air filter door onto the
    lower HVAC housing air filter opening.
    (4) Slide the air filter door latch toward the front
    of the vehicle until it hits the closed stop on the door.

    AND it's not real easy to see the thing. You almost have to lay down in the passenger floor and look up and try to get your bifocals to work upside down.
    Or use a big mirror, I didn't think of this...
    The "musty" smell might be a stopped up cabin filter full of pollen and moisture and mold.
    If I had one I WOULD keep it changed. All the air for the A/C or heat comes from the outside and through this filter unless you have it on recirculate.
    If you don't have one there is not much there to collect the stuff unless it collects on the condensor.. I guess.

    uddybay: look up some more recent recent threads on this subject. Perhaps some late-built 2000 T&C models had a filter compartment between the blower fan and the evaporator like 4th gen. minivans, but no sightings have been reported. For 1996-2000 models, there was a filter kit sold as Mopar accessory and it was installed at the intake openings below the windshield, which required removing the wiper unit.

    Waaaaait a minute:

    Are there really 2000 model vans that had "3 zone climate control with digital readout" ??

    I feel like this would be a drastic change to the center console design, much bigger than the differences that would be seen between that of a 3rd gen Dodge Caravan base and a Town & Country Limited.

    What the heck does it look like? As far as I knew the 3rd gens could only have driver & passenger temperature controls, with rear air who's temperature mirrored the driver's slider control.

    If the filter for 2000 model year is listed in some catalogs, it's either an error or indeed some minivans had it. I believe it's an error but one can always speculate. Technically, all you need to add a filter is to design a compartment for it between the blower and the evaporator.

    2000 Model Digital Display?

    I cannot answer this question. I was just reading this in a post way back someplace. I had a 94 T&C that had a super cool digital display. I bought the van new and it was my 1st Chrysler van. I put 150K miles and I really liked that van. At that time almost ALL the T&C vans were equipped almost the same way.. loaded. That BIG digital display for ALL the speedometer and everything was really neat.
    I traded that van in on the one I have now. Same color everything, just newer. I would like to trade again, but I don't think the new Sto & Go seating is as nice and comfortable as my 2000. The interior on some look cheap to me. I sat in a brand new one that I did not like.
    If some from the 4th generation board read that, they may get ticked off at me.
    The back passenger side captain seat is the most comfortable seat in my van.
