Why do you think you have a Cabin (Passenger Compartment) Air Filter?

Re: Cabin Air Filer for 2005 Escape

I was told that there was such a filter. Maybe I was misinformed?

Well after lloking around, it seems that you may have one. See
http://www.carquest.com/product/filters/cabin_air.pdf and
http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/ar...cury%20Mariner .

If you have one, it will be under a plastic cover on the passenger side near
the base of the windshield. If there is a filter, there will be a series of
plastic screws in the air intake plenum cover at the rear of the engine
compartment. If you remove these plastic "screws" (push pins), you can
remove the cover and replace the filter (at least that is how it works for
the two vechiles that I own that have filters).

I also posted the Carquest link. However when I looked at the Owner's Guide
for a 2005 Escape, I could find no mention of a cabin air filter. I also
looked at the 2002 Escape Owner's Guide and it doesn't mention a cabin air
filter either. Furthermore, when I looked at the vehicle specs on the Ford
website I see no mention of a cabin air filter. Nor is it mentioned in the
vehicle ordering guides. I find it strange that Ford includes this feature,
and then doesn't tell anyone about it. On the other hand, both Carquest and
Motorcraft offer replacement "Pollen" filters (Carquest P/N YL8418797 -
Ford, Motorcraft P/N FP-49, Ford P/N YL8Z-19N619-AB), so it must be there.
Strange. Is it possible that the filter is not installed at the factory, but
can be added as an aftermarket accessory? I've seen at least one site that
indicated that this was the case (see
http://www.greenhybrid.com/discuss/c...lter.4261.html ). I also came
across a better illustration of how to replace the filter at
http://www.hastingsfilter.com/products/af1148.pdf . Also see:

http://www.wixfilters.com/filterlook...asp?Part=24816
http://www.ptcauto.com/pdfs/CABIN-FILTER-ASST-CB100.pdf - Apparently
Purolator# C25478, Wix# 24816, Hastings# AF1148, Champ# CAF1755, Fram #
CF9362 are all equivalent to the FORD YL8Z-19N619-AB Pollen Filter.

Sorry, I missed your link when I posted mine.
My owner's manual mentions Cabin Air Filtration on p. 274 as an accessory,
but also has the disclaimer that "not all accessories are available for all
models."
I found out about mine from escape-central.com back when I first bought my
'02. I've been using a Fram CA4303, but I have a feeling they're not being
made any more- I bought the last 2 that Wal-Mart had at $4 apiece on the
"discontinued" table.

So did yours come with a filter, or did you add it?

I read that some of the cabin filters are only engine air intake filters,
and not suitable for the real intended purpose. They just happen to fit,
since most of the cabin air filters are just flat rectangles. Maybe that's
the discontinued Fram.

Fram CA8997 and Fram CF9362 are both listed in different places.
