2012 Ford Escape: Comprehensive Guide on Cabin Air Filter Replacement

If you want to put an end to airborne contaminants in your car, a new cabin filter from Filterheads.com could be the solution you need.

First, to access the cabin air filter, open the hood of your car and use the hood prop rod to support it.

The cabin air filter is typically located under the passenger side cowling. You can access the cabin filter by removing the screw pins. Carefully unscrew the clip, making sure not to apply too much pressure downward, and raise it enough to pull it off from the cowling. Then, lift the cowling and the weather cover to remove the old filter. Take the opportunity to remove any debris in the housing. It’s common to find no cabin filter initially, so it’s important to check and install a new one if necessary.

When installing the new cabin filter, such as the AQ1211, into the housing, it may fit a bit awkwardly, but as long as it covers the bottom of the filter housing, it will still be effective. Reinstall the weather cover by lining the tabs with their catch and pressing down to lock in both sides. After that, reinstall the pins to secure the cowling. Finally, remove the hood prop rod and close the hood.
