Re: cabin air filter
Tools needed are a Phillips screwdriver. Open the hood. Notice the cover for the cabin filter is on the cowl on the passenger side. Remove the screw form the cover.Remove the cover by pulling toward the front of the vehicle. The filter is now visible. Remove by pushing up on the filter to loosen from housing and then pulling out toward the front of the vehicle. Replace with clean cabin filter. Replace cover by lining up the notches on either side of the cover plate to the grooves in the filter housing. Replace the screw in the cover plate. Good luck and hope this helps.

This is one of those topics that I have seen both ways.
1. The 2004 was the only MY to include an airfilter. 2. The late build 2004 to 2008 could have a dealer installed cabin air filter kit installed.
So don't be shocked if you go fishing for it, and it is not there. On to the directions :
Open the passenger-side glove compartment box. Remove all of the items currently stored in the glove box
Notice two screws on the inside ceiling of the glove box securing the glove box to the dashboard. Use a flat-head screwdriver to remove these screws. The glove box will now be loose. Wiggle the box off the dashboard and allow it to hang.
Locate the rectangular plastic housing; this is where the cabin air filter is stored. Remove the housing cover by pulling it out of place. Remove the dirty cabin air filter by sliding it out of the clips securing it in place. Discard the dirty filter.
Slide the replacement cabin air filter into the retainer clips. Push the filter housing cover back into place until you hear it lock. Place the glove compartment back into place. Replace the two screws that secure the glove box in place and tighten with the screwdriver. Place the items back into the glove box and close the box.
Hello vtondryk: My name is Roger and I Will help you. Not all ford truck this model year had cabin air filters.Only truck with the filter cover below the glove box had a filter. I attached a picture that shows where the filter should be. As stated though. If the cover is not there than your truck does not have a cabin air filter. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
Not all vehicles have a C A F. If inded yours does have one it would be located on the a/c- heater module under the dashboard.
Look under the passenger side..pop off the little cover panel and look for the 1 inch or so wide section.. if it looks like something can be removed then try...if not then no no C A F there.
Your local auto parts store such as Autozone may/can have additional info and be able to locate/show you personally if one is on your vehicle.
your behicle did not come with one from the factory.
