Red face Cabin Air Filter

Hi Everybody. I visited forum looking for info on where the cabin air filter was. Several references were found but now I fail to get back to that forum page to post this:

That last part looks funny but I copy pasted it just to be sure this video is available because that was the best one I found to show how to get the job done. THIS IS FOR MKC LINCOLN.

Left kick panel passenger side (below and to the left of the glove box)... Its a bit of a job getting it in.

The fuse box is in the way, so you really have to twist to get the new filter in. The old one came out fine, but I had a difficult time wiggling the new one in there. I bought a carbon filter -- which was more rigid than the OEM filter. Next time, I'll just pick a cheap, plain filter. You don't have to remove the glove box -- like the dealer claims. They wanted $70 labor.


I also feel like I lost some output with the carbon filter.

I removed and replaced the fuse box. Makes it much easier. This location gets my vote for the worst cabin filter location ever. I have other cars that take 2 minutes to replace.

My 13 altima is in a similar location. by watching the video I think the MKC is not as bad. But I do agree some makers place it some place easy to replace.
