Just changed my cabin filter on my 2012 SEL at 45K miles

its was NOT THAT DIRTY. I rarely travel dirt roads either. Followed the instructions on the forum about loosening that close by center vent and pushing it to the left, then carefully squeezing the new filter to coax it in place. I'm a fairly experienced wrench and it went in OK, but it was NOT A BREEZE. THANKS AGAIN FORUM MEMBERS!

Iwanta1.0 Thanks! I did a search and couldn't find the air cabin filter for Ecogard here. I think the Ford is 90% of dust and Ecogard is 99.5% which is a big difference. IF this is actually true. Double checking the Ecogard part for a 2015 Focus is XC36174? Will buy this and the air filter today and "try" to install later this week. There is also Cleenaire brand out there.

The Ford part is FP-70, and I recently got mine from AMZ for around $14/shipped. I know it works on the '12-14 Focus, but you should double check for your '15. Your dealer could confirm it.

Purolator and Fram I think. The Ford dealer is a bit of a drive. I guess I could do Amazon w/2 day shipping. Just want to make sure I buy the correct one.
Just go to rockauto.com, select year, make, and model and you can't go wrong!

Oh and please stay away from anything fram for your car's sake!!!

Maybe in the uk? I've swapped mine out 9 times with a genuine motorcraft filter here in the states and every new one I've put in has been white.

Don't forget madmole's comment here, black seems to be normal after some use.

Slicknick Just did mine, cake. The PO did not have the screw so the door was just hanging there. The filter was BLACK!

It's all relative. Not a difficult job, but you will you have to contort your body to see what's going on. That's the part that sucks, but give it a shot.
