Just be careful with the clip holding the filter in as it will break if forced.
This time when I do it it will be 10 minutes or less to change it.
But just one word of caution: There is an air bag located around that glove box.
Also I picked up 2 filters through e-bay dirt cheap. They look identical to the OEM one.
I do plan on changing them 1x a year after I saw what the OEM one looked like after 2 years.
Yeah, I went and ordered trim tools after using a flat head screwdriver for my wife's 200. After just over a year it was filthy and full of German Shepherd.

I've been using Mann carbon cabin air filters in my Jetta for several years, and they do absorb unpleasant exhaust fumes, etc. but still need to be replaced annually. I'd like to find a similar product for the Cherokee.
I have and fit perfect. i have notice no smells since installing in August.

I ordered mine off eBay and ordered two of them for like $9 shipped. Got it about 30days from China (in december and can see major shipping / custom delays) but once I received them I installed it and fit like a glove.

Best solution to keep out bad smells is to change the filter at least 1x a year.
Once that air flow decreases through the heating/cooling system that is the start of potential issues.
Poor air flow increases humidity levels in the system. Add the darkness of the system and any organic material like dust/dirt in it and you now have a breading ground for mold.
You might actually begin to see it first if you are lucky on the filter material itself. If it gets into your system itself you may be looking at one large repair bill to rid it out of the vehicle.
Smells are a good indicator that things are not well in the heating cooling system. With good air flow mold can not grow. Thus keeping that filter clean provides good air flow.
There is mold all over, as it is part of the environment. The job is to just prevent if from active growth and keep it dormant.
Just a suggestion.
