Towards the battery on the driver's side there's a large plastic box that has 2 metal latches like on an old fashioned suitcase. Open those up and you can see you've split the seam to the air filter housing. Next, towards the bottom where you can't see there are a couple black plastic latches molded into the plastic housing that hold the two halves of the air box together. Pry those up and pull the two halves apart. This should give you just enough room to slide the air filter up and out. Be sure to put the new one in the same direction (metal screen pointed outboard toward driver's front wheel). If you need more wiggle room you can loosen the hose clamp in between the air box and the engine.

I went to replace cabin filter in a 2003 ford escape (bought escape new) there was no filter in the place filter was suppose to be. Actually damage the seal on windshield because of dry rot when getting to the place filter was suppose to be. I will not attempt this again because of the poor design to replace filter.

In order to change the cabin air filter, you just take out the old filter that is under your dash and put in the new one. The filter helps to filter outside air.

The air filter on a Ford Escort ZX2 is changed by opening the latches on the air handler box and lifting up the top cover. The old filter can then be removed and a new filter put in place.

I was looking in the 2006 Ford Focus owners manual and it shows that the air filter is a non - serviceable part . The air filter is designed to last the life of the vehicle . A Ford technician can check the diagnostic system to see if there is a possibility of an excessively dirty air filter

Open up the air box on the air intake. (The big black box.) Remove old filter, insert new. There are 2 clips that hold it in place. It is much eaisier if you remove the hose connected , it gives you more room.

On the 2001 it is located on the right side under the wiper. Open hood, remove the windshield cowl and the air filter is there.

Yes, the 2005 Ford Escape (4 cyl or V6) has an air conditioning cabin filter. The original manufacturer part # is YL8Z19N619AB. You can usually buy an aftermarket replacement at most auto part stores. The price range for this filter is $14-20, depending on the brand.
