Depending on how dusty it is where you drive you might go a few years or less than half a year before the filter is clogged to the point of choking off air flow...
The Matrix/Vibe one was easy! 1) Remove glovebox (1 screw involved) 2) unlatch filter door 3) remove!
I can't imagine how much the dealer is going to charge to replace the Focus air filter... And yes, they do get clogged up.
