    HOW TO: 2015+ F150 Cabin Air Filter Replacement

    For those of you that don’t know, the 2015+ model year F150’s have incorporated a cabin filter unlike the 1st gen Ecoboost trucks. Here are some instructions to removal and installation along with some videos in case you are more of a visual learner.

    Parts:
    New cabin filter (Motorcraft FP-79; or equivalent)
    7mm socket
    Socket wrench
    Trim removal tools (optional but helpful)


    Removal and installation of glove box and trim pieces may be different because of model year and/or trim package.

    1 Disconnect damper piece on the right side of the glove box by sliding it forward then pulling it out from the side of glove box

    2 Find the tab on each side of the glove box and push in simultaneously on both tabs to drop the glove box

    3 Pull out and down on the rubber trim piece located above the glove box pocket (For XLT and lower models)

    3.1 For Lariat and up trim models, follow these steps:

    3.2 Insert the tool with the split end in the middle of the wood trim piece


    3.3 Pry down on the tool with the split end and insert in trim removal tool with a 90° hook/bend.


    3.4 While prying down with the split end tool, slide the hook tool to the far right of the trim piece and pull towards you. Do this all the way from right to left for the whole trim piece.


    4. Remove two 7mm bolts exposed on the door pocket tabs


    5. Grasp the bottom front of the glove box pocket and work it out straight out

    6. Disconnect glove box sensor plug on the left side of the glove box pocket

    7. Pull two tabs on the side of the honeycomb door panel off then swivel the door down to remove it.


    8. Remove old cabin filter and replace with new, ensuring the air flow arrow is pointed down


    9. Repeat steps in reverse order to put everything back together.

    Here is a cabin filter with 12K miles on it from a non-smoker.

    Thanks miles!

    But you do realize that now you've simply increased your own torture for every future thread started that even remotely has anything to do with the interior cabin filter?

    Still, the current membership is grateful.

    This is a pretty valuable write-up with included video/s......but it ticks me off so bad since it flaunts that the 2015+ have a filter and mine doesn't!!!!
    That is my biggest gripe about the 09-14 models lack of an in-cabin air filter.

    Then again, if that's my biggest gripe about my truck, then life is still pretty awesome! LOL

    Not my filter, I found it on another thread I was reading about.

    I plan on changing mine soon and I have just under 12K miles on my truck. I will post it up here when I do.

    SpaceAce, what is your relationship to Ford Parts Prime? In the 14 posts you’ve made you’ve mentioned them at least 5 times. Few people love their source that much.
