All Duratecs 05-07 have a "lifetime filter". It is inside the driver's side inner fender with a snorkel hose that goes to the windshield. You have to remove the wheel and inner fender liner to access it. There are 2 bolts inside the fender and one in the engine compartment. I can pull one in 20 minutes. Not sure why these guys were having a hard time. Expensive to replace. My solution is to remove the airbox assembly and buy a Universal cone filter. Cut the mass air flow sensor tube and put the filter on it and then put that on the intake hose. This is my Steeda but the principle is the same. Note that the MAF only works in one direction.
