When should I change the cabin air filter in my Ford?

Cabin air filters help enhance the air quality inside your vehicle, creating a healthier, more comfortable environment for you and your passengers. A properly functioning cabin air filter can stop up to 90% of dust, pollen, and spore particles from entering the passenger compartment.

Ford Motor Company recommends that you replace this filter every 15,000 to 20,000 miles, depending on your vehicle model.

However, you may want to replace it more often if:

  • You or a frequent passenger suffer from allergies.
  • You or a frequent passenger have other respiratory problems.
  • You drive on dirt roads or in excessively dusty conditions.
  • You drive in heavily polluted areas.

Refer to your Owner's Manual for information specific to your vehicle on when to replace your air filter and where it is located. 

Visit your Ford Dealer for a replacement Motorcraft®* cabin air filter, or visit Ford Parts.
