Did this video help you?

James Hobson: Thanks for mentioning the part number.. the dozens others I've tried either don't mention it or say it's the same as the engine air filter! Skidz4500: A large percentage of Escapes/Mariners/Tributes were not sold with cabin air filters. They are technically optional, and probably as a cost-saving maneuver (even as small as it is) they were only included with high-trim models or opted-for by select dealers.

kewrock: My 07 XLT fleet car had no filter either. My dash is always dirty.

Jim Resseguie: I followed the directions for removing the filter on my 2006 Escape Hybrid and like you I found there was no filter in the air box. Since I am the original and only owner I contacted my dealer and went in to the parts department. I was informed that the air box was used on several models and not all models had a filter. For the 2006 Escape Hybrid there is no cabin air filter. The only interior air filter is the one located in the rear compartment and is a filter for the cooling air to the hybrid battery (which I had just changed). I was told not to install a filter since it did not have one. There is a possibility it could be detrimental in air circulation for the AC. So I cleaned everything and put it back as it was. 

mrjost55: wow that's an odd place to put it, or maybe I'm just used to the relative simplicity of Lexus cars. They have em right behind the glove box or inside the glove box., very quick and easy to replace. I think if I didn't read the manual or look at this video, I would have never known that this car has a cabin filter.

skidz4500: Thanks for the video. My wife has an 02 Escape. I opened it up today what a suprise no cabin filter in this one either. Nothing but a big mice nest. This issue seems to be common. Have you seen other escapes with no cabin filter?

moviegeek65: It's a dealer installed option, I didn't get one either. You don't need a filter unless you have allergies.

Jerry Geodisk: These filters not only keep the dust out of your cabin, they also keep dirt, leaves, twigs, etc. off the evaporator core greatly extending the life of the a/c system.

Rex TexasAggie: Thanks for your work on here...saves me lots of money during a time we need lots of money! Thank YOU!

rb62470: Found out today that my 2008 Ford Escape came without a cabin air filter too. I wonder if Ford puts them in any vehicles or just lies about it and says they do. They probably don't even do it when you bring it in for service and tell them to. So not only is doing it yourself cheaper - it's the only way to know it got done. I could also go into a big long thing about all the cheap crap on my new Explorer (like the two visor lights that literally fell apart), but suffice it to say Ford sucks.

Melanie Drengberg: Wouldn't it be a good idea to clean the filter area and cover before inserting a new filter? It looks like the filter on that car would be filthy on the first run.

bigjohnson5619: Filter : MIA . Ford : ooopppsss

Josephina Aultman: I have an 05 when we took it apart we found that someone took something out with metal cutters that had been next to the filer box, anyone know what the heck it could be that was taken out???

mrusa4440: The reason this won't work well is because the filter has a gasket around the edges to provide a seal and keep dust and dirt from getting into the air ducts.

John Doe: Cabin air filters are optional. You don't have to have one, but they do help clean the air inside of your car. The Ford Escape does not come equiped with a filter from the factory, but there is a place to put one if you like. When you bought the car new you would have had to ask for one to be installed, otherwise it would be missing like in this video.

David Mortiz: I can't say i'm shocked that they left it out. What about the, I wanna say Honda something, The ones you have to actually cut the plastic that goes across the bottom of the glove box off. (It's been a while!)

Subparanon: I remember this from back when I bought my escape, at the time Ford was not including cabin air filters stock. They were trying to sell people on Ford's hepafilter but if you didn't take that option they used NO filter. I had to install my first filter myself and there was no factory filter there.

Scott Johnson: The Mazada Tribute dealer wanted $ 69 to change this filter. I bought it for $ 16 and did it myself, thanks to your great, and simple, directions. Where can I send you a few dollars to say thanks?

FIcaraudioBTL: @jet62095 thrust me its the same i got an 03 v6

maincity: Thank you verymuch, I couldn't even find the cab filter. I've owned GMC all my life and the cabin filters are accesible right inside the cab held in with quick clips. Thanks for the info much appreciated, the step by step instruction is excellent. Our 06 Escape had no cabin filter either?? Weird...

dynomax666: they likely tell you they change them when they really don't also. cabin air filters are just something apparently new that people all think they should run out and change here lately for some reason...

mrjost55: @FIcaraudioBTL thrust you? haha ;)

Karl B: thank you for all the videos. Real helpful.

Adrian Segura: Thanks for the good video, I just change mine on a 2003 Escape, it didn't had one, I put one because I know my father in law when he bought never bother to check. Like I said it didn't had one but I just put one, I was worried I had put it the wrong way because in the manual it showed that the black trim was downward, glad I put it like you put it in the video.

urntwrthyZ: You'll find it's much easier to access the cowl fasteners if you "park" the windshield wipers in the vertical position.

Warrior1700: Very well-done! Excellent! Thank you.

lucas rabe: Great video! Thanks for saving me time and effort! I'm shocked they don't come installed from the factory.

noutbox: Does not surprise me since Ford mfg's rear axles so thin that they've failed under load and people have died. And Ford never even offered to help the family bury their dead, and it req'd a Judge to have the rear axles replaced. To to date Ford, who has killed will not replace the defective rear axle beams of Winstar Vans which proves that Ford doesnt mind killing you or I to save a dollar. Therefore pass the word... Boycott Ford in all respects if you can, in memory of the innocent lives taken

alaster134: I'm loving your videos. I feel brand new, again! -Drew's '04 Escape

smuthwaters: My uncle bought an '03 LeSabre new and it had no cabin filter element installed. How would you clean the air system out before putting in a new element? I ask this because I would assume that dirt and dust and other particles would be in there causing problems for the passengers and the interior surfaces since there was no element for so long.

Bluetempo: My 2003 Escape did not have one either. Seems to be a common issue. Has to be a reason why.

lajkej64: Why not get a pleated media filter for your house and cut to fit?

Teresa Curtis: Where is cabin filter located at in a Chevrolet HHR 2007?

roogermoore1: thanks.

David Dias: this guy has some serious finesse!

DaPobster: damn ford :/ smh

FIcaraudioBTL: @jet62095 yeah you r right my escape didn't come whit one

blporter11: No filter in my 06 tribute 6 cyl either. When I had the dealer change my oil last year one of the items found on their courtesy inspection was a "dirty cabin filter". Yea, right! I declined to have it changed at the time.

Jason Hughes: Thanks for making this so easy. My 06 Escape didn't have a filter either. Great video.

HexagramMan: because the amount of dust you will encounter on the road is astronomically greater than in your basement. Not only that but the dust you get on the road is made by tires wearing down and break dust (hazardous). not to mention that dust is getting coated in all the fluids that get leaked out of cars, all of which is toxic and none of which you would want to breath. spent the 8 bucks on a real filter.
