Cabin air filter
I am about to take my 2003 Escape in for 100,000 mile service and I don't want to pay $42 to have the dealer inspect my cabin air filter. My owner's manual doesn't state how to check it myself. I believe it is on passenger side under dash but others have said the access in engine compartment passenger side. I don't "see" anything in the engine compartment. Who can help. Thanks, Dale.
It's under the passenger side cowl. Here is a guide on how to change it http://www.wikihow.com/Install-a-Cabin-Air-Filter-in-a-2003-Ford-Escape-Xlt
Pass side under the wiper. That's were it is. I change my every 20,000 but, the book sez 12,000 If you keep the wiper in a up position, it will be easier to get into the box which holds the cabin air-filter. You have to remove those round plastic caps to get inside the box.
