Unhappy Help With Instruction to Remove Air Filter Box on a 2004 ZTW (2.3)

Can someone PLEASE point me to a source that shows how to CORRECTLY remove and install the air filter (filterless) box on my 2004 ZTW?

Any info would be much appreciated. I have a severe drop in MPG and have done everything else (plugs, fuel filter, gas treatment-Techron x 4, and had the brakes checked).

Thank You

I now have, what I feel is a cool, old people car when compared to the fun models of the past. It is a 2011 SE with 201A upgrade. I would like to know if any of you out there have done anything to this otherwise great car. The only fun thing I've found so far is ny 5 speed stick. No one seems to want to mod it out. At least it should have some nice custom tail lamps. It's Sterling Grey Metallic with 15" alloy wheels and that's about it. I'd like to hear from others anytime!

Hi everybody, I'm Quinn. I just recently bought a French Blue 2002 ZX3. I love the car, and I was browsing around looking at aftermarket parts and seeing what people had done to their Focuses when I saw this site. I'm not in the market to start working on my car much, but I'd like to be in the future, so I'm just trying to get a feel for what's possible with my new car.

My current DD (which the focus is replacing) is a 1998 olds cutlass with 249k miles its been a good car but with the rising gas price i needed something more fuel friendly for my 82 mile round trip drive to work everyday.

New focus owner checking in

Picked up my new Focus, 2011 SE, sterling gray metalllic with charcoal black interior. First new ford since 1985 when I bought my first ever new car, an 85 Ford Ranger.

Had the Focus all of one day. Very nice driving car. The dealers are dealing on these, invoice minus $3000 cash incentives. Focus = most bang for your buck anywhere right now.

Love the Sirius radio. The MyKey will come in handy with the teenage drivers in the household. Look forward to learning all about the Focus and a few possible options (all weather Husky liners and splash guards, etc.)
