Cabin Air Filter Installation
Annoyed with all the pollen and dust in your interior? Unless you special ordered it, Ford left out the cabin air filter. Here's how to install one in your Focus. Compliments of myFordFocus.com Forum Member: CinnabonBoy Cost: $10.00 Time to Complete: 10 minutes Tools Required:

  • Flat Head screwdriver
  • Phillips head screwdriver
Parts Needed:
  • Purolator cabin filter: C25387 -OR- Motorcraft cabin filter: FP38

Instructions: (Click images to Enlarge)
  1. Stop the windshield wipers when they are in the up position. Since the filter will be placed on the passenger side, this will make it easier to access the panel.
  2. In the center of the windshield, there is a small plastic circle piece. Pry it off with the flathead screwdriver, and set it aside in a safe place. Remove the screw you have uncovered. (See picture) This will make it easier to remove the panel you are about to remove.
  3. There are 3 plastic locking clips holding the cover down. Use your flathead screwdriver to GENTLY pry them up. Once they are up, give the whole piece a little tug up and to the left. You will see the slot where the filter goes.
    • BE CAREFUL!!!! Everything is made of plastic, and everything can break. Take your time, and don't get frustrated.
  4. In this slot, there is an eggcrate style plastic piece retaining the space where your filter is about to be placed. Pull up and out on it to remove it. You will not need this piece, so you can discard it, or keep it in a safe place.
  5. Remove your filter from the box.
    • Note: which side is to be placed "up".
  6. Slide the filter into the casing, ensuring a snug fit.
  7. Replace everything you removed by reversing the steps above.
  8. Go in the car, and blast the vent, to remove any dust, etc. that may have been in the vents.
  9. Enjoy your clean air! You will notice that your interior will stay cleaner for longer periods of time, and you can breathe easier!!

According to the shop manual you do not have one.
Air Distribution and Filtering adobe.gif Printable View (79 KB) NOTE: The air distribution system of this vehicle cannot be equipped with a cabin air filter.
There are 2 sources of air available to the air distribution system:

  • Outside air
  • Recirculated air
Recirculated air is automatically used when the electronic manual temperature control mode selector is set in the MAX A/C or OFF modes and can be selected in any mode other than MAX A/C, OFF or DEFROST by selecting the RECIRC button. Recirculated air is available in all modes except DEFROST. If the vehicle is equipped with an electronic automatic temperature control (EATC) system, recirculated air is used in OFF and is available in all modes except DEFROST. RECIRC mode is a timed function in FLOOR and FLOOR/DEFROST.
Air distribution within the vehicle is determined by the electronic manual temperature control (EMTC) function selector switch position, or is controlled by the EATC system in the AUTOMATIC mode. The air distribution mode on EATC vehicles may be overridden by the driver if desired. Air distribution doors are used to direct airflow within the heater core and evaporator core housing and the plenum chamber. An electronic mode door actuator is used to position these air distribution doors. One air inlet mode door is used to switch between FRESH or RECIRC air inlet. An electric actuator is used to position the air inlet mode door.
Air enters the passenger compartment from the:
  • instrument panel A/C registers.
  • heater outlet floor ducts.
  • windshield defroster duct.
  • side window demisters.
  • center flow-through console (if equipped).
Passenger compartment air is exhausted from the vehicle through open windows or body air vents.

SOURCE: Wher do you install a cabin filter on a 2005 Ford Escape XLT?

Yes you have one and it runs about $15.00.

Looking for a picture for you but it should be in the engine compartment area, passenger side, just below the windshield on the firewall area...or JUST above it.

But looking for a picture for you. It states that you should change it about every 150,000 miles.

Po 161 and p1135


PO161 IS FOR OXYGEN SENSOR BANK2 WHICH IS LOCATED IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT OF THE CAT (PASSENGER SIDE ) ON THE OUTPUT OF THE CAT..
P1135 AIR FUEL RATIO OXYGEN SENSOR MALFUNCTION BANK1-IS NOT NEED TO RENEW IT. CHECK WHETHER YOU HAVE THE AIR FILTER CLOGGED,OR WEAK SPARK CABLES OR WORN SPARK PLUGS,AS THESE ARE THE CULPRITS WHICH CAUSING THE AIR FUEL MIXTURE BE OUT OF RANGE AND CAUSE THE OXYGEN SENSOR TO FAIL. MY LAST OPINION CHANGE THE OXYGEN SENSOR BANK 2 ( PO161)AND RESET THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT USING A SCANNER AND DRIVE IT. IF NO LIGHT COMES ON SHOULD BE THE ONLY FAULT.

Engine runs rough


It could be a lot of things. What maintenance has it had? Spark plugs, wires, cap, rotor, distributor, coil, mass air sensor, clogged PCV valve, vacuum leak, primary oxygen sensor, skipped timing, clogged air filter, bad tank of gas, bad battery ground - any of these could cause that. Has the car had any of this done lately? Has it had any other work done lately? Sometimes while doing one maintenance procedure, something can get bumped or disconnected and cause other issues.

Will a bad oxygen sensor cause a catalytic convertor to stop up

Emiting black smoke


You have not indicated year or model so the basic answer is as follows. Black smoke usually indicates an excessively rich fuel air mixture associated with excessive fuel consumption.
It can usually be caused by a clogged air filter. The filter can be checked after removal from the air filter box by shining a torch through the element material. If the torchlight can be seen it is OK to be reused but if little or no light is visible then filter must be replaced.
For carburettor engines it could mean a stuck choke or the carby float level is too high caused by a worn needle and seat. For Fuel Injected engines it could be caused by incorrect fuel pressure, leaking injectors, a faulty Oxygen sensor or a faulyty coolant temperature sensor.

Fuels to rich and the car cuts out goin up hills and it dont idle right what could cause that?


Two problems that I can see would cause all of that - a bad primary oxygen sensor (the one before the catalytic converter) and a clogged fuel filter. It's possible, if the oxygen sensor has been bad for a long time, that the cat is clogged with carbon residue from running too rich, but I'd change that O2 sensor and the fuel filter and see what happens.

What would cause this vehicle to use execessive gas.


1) dirty air filter

2) vacuum leak

3) false reading from mass air flow sensor

4) false reading from coolant temperature sensor

5) improper tires inflation

6) topping off gas when fill-up (soaking emission lines with fuel)

7) Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) and breather element clogging

8) Exhaust Gas Recirculation(EGR) Valve stuck with carbon and EGR passage tube is block with carbon.

9) low or dirty transmission fluid + filter (if it's an automatic)

10) excessive load

Where is cabin ac filter located


If the air conditioner emits a foul odor into the cabin it is probably the drain tube on the evaporator core is clogged. What happens is the clog causes mildew to start growing and then it blows the stink right into the car. And to answer your question the cabin air filter location all depends on the year make and model of the car.
