Dodge Avenger 2008 - 2014  | 2.4 Air filter change

  • time 5 to 45 minutes
  • difficulty 2
1 The air filter is located inside a housing at the right (passenger's) side of the engine compartment
2 If you're removing the top cover, disconnect the Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor electrical connector
3 To remove the air filter, pull the locking clips off of the housing tabs that secure the two halves of the air filter housing together, then separate the cover halves and remove the air filter element
3a Loosen the clamp (A) and disconnect the IAT sensor connector (B) (only if you are removing the cover completely). Detach the intake duct, carefully pull the locking clips back off of the tabs (C) . . .
3b . . . then lift the air filter housing cover and remove the air filter element – 2.4L engine shown, other models similar
Note: On 3.6L engines, the air filter cover is held in place by four mounting screws
4 Inspect the outer surface of the filter element. If it is dirty, replace it. If it is only moderately dusty, it can be reused by blowing it clean from the back to the front surface with compressed air. Because it is a pleated paper type filter, it cannot be washed or oiled. If it cannot be cleaned satisfactorily with compressed air, discard and replace it. While the cover is off, be careful not to drop anything down into the housing
5 Wipe out the inside of the air filter housing
6 Place the new filter into the air filter housing, making sure it seats properly
7 Reinstall the cover, making sure the locking clips are seated against the locking tabs (or tighten the mounting screws)
