    Cabin Air Filter 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan W/Dual AC

    I have a 2003 dodge grand caravan and am getting mixed feedback on whether or not it has a cabin air filter. The owners manual says it has one, but I have read some threads that seem to indicate that it might not.

    If it has one I cannot locate where it could be. Can anyone shed some light on this topic?

    Thanks
    Mike

    There are several threads about this subject.

    Basically, I don't think there was ever a consensus based on model/equipment. Some models don't have it that you'd think would and vice versa.

    We have not found any solid pattern on what vans got them and what van's didn't. According to the service manual, ALL vans with 3-zone systems have HVAC filters. According to the 2003 sales brochure, ONLY vans with the DIGITAL (electronic) 3-zone systems have HVAC filters. Our experience has been somewhere in the middle. I think everyone with an electronic HVAC has a filter, and many with manual 3-zone systems also have the filter.

    Our 2003 with manual 3-zone does NOT have a filter. If your 2003 doesn't have it either, you are not alone.

    I agree with Jason that a FIRM pattern has not been found. I think it is more so , right on, with the 2001. However , the newer ones are in the 'Your guess is as good as our's" area. With trying to save a $$, small , usually almost unnoticable features are gradually left off , usually noteven noticed until a following year , OR By members of this Fourm. Just like when they stopped putting the heater grid across the bottom of the windshield somewhere in 2002-2003. What a great feature, too bad it was cut.

    Cabin Air Filter

    Thanks all for the response. It doesn't look like my vehicle has one.

    Adding cabin air filter

    I was just helping my 85 yr old father buy a 2007 Dodge Caravan SXT (shortie) which we pick up tomorrow and we paid the dealer to add the cabin air filter.

    Not sure if this is correct but it looks like from my research that in the 2007's only the Grand edition Town and Country with ATC Air conditioning have the cabin filter.

    I will have more details after I review the installation with the Tech who put it in.

    He said he found the procedure complete with photos on the web and that there were 2 ways to do it. it could be an internal Chrysler web document because I was unable to find anything with Google or Yahoo.

    I think there's a posting on this forum about how to do that. Do a search.
