I have also looked & can't find anything on a 2007 Focus 2.0l air filter. Very strange. Have you tried contacting Ford?

Re: 2007 2.0 ses air filter ???

Very strange indeed. I checked the fitment guide at Amsoil and came up with three different oil filters, a transmission filter and a fuel filter - but no air filters. You would think the aftermarket would be all over this. However, K&N offers a cold air intake kit: 69-3513TTK - K&N 69 Series Typhoon Kits, Performance Intake Kit

I'd contact K&N to see what's available for a regular drop in replacement. They have european C-Max focus with several filter options, but no drop ins for the North American market. The CAI will cost substantially more than a standard drop in filter, but at least it's an option.

It's Ford P/N 4S4Z9600AA, but you're not going to like the price. According to Ford it is supposed to last 150,000 miles. That part number may be for the entire air cleaner assembly. Unfortunately I can't seem to find any more information about it.

Re: 2007 2.0 ses air filter ???

I'd be a bit concerned if the dealer told me an air filter will last 150K. I suppose one has to read the maintenance schedule of the vehicle they're interested in before they decide to purchase it. Crazy.

Re: 2007 2.0 ses air filter ???

I don't know how (or if) they pulled that off, but 150K is the recommended service interval in the service literature Ford distributes to its mechanics. While it sounds like one of those outrageous dealership whoppers along the lines of "Nobody can break into a Pontiac convertible because the top cannot be cut with a knife," it is apparently for real. But I suspect it needs to be adjusted for dusty areas.

AIR FILTER ELEMENT
Your vehicle is equipped with a lifetime air filter. The air filter assembly
includes a restriction gauge indicator that can be checked by your
authorized dealer. Refer to scheduled maintenance information for the
proper inspection intervals.


Non Serviceable Part. The air filter is designed to last the life of the
vehicle. See authorized dealer or qualified technician for replacement.
The Technician can check the diagnostics system for the possibility of an
excessively dirty air filter.
That's what the manual says.

"The air filter is designed to last the life of the
vehicle", I would wonder how long they expect the vehicle to last...

Re: 2007 2.0 ses air filter ???

Yes, it is very strange. How can something that is a filter, never need servicing/replacing??? I'd love to know how it works.

BTW Its only on the PZEV (Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle) engine.

Re: 2007 2.0 ses air filter ???

The long life filter is probably a good idea. Whenever air filters are serviced particulate finds it's way into the intake tract. Heavy offroad equipment have warnings not to overservice air cleaners for this reason. The conventional filter with it's lid and gasket are potential contaminate leaks.
Just guessing but I suspect the sealed unit incorporates some sort of inertia prefilter to extend it's life.
