Where Is the Ford F-150 Cabin Air Filter Located?

The Ford F-150 cabin air filter is located behind the glove compartment inside the truck. The glove box must be removed from its location in order to access the filter.

There are two types of replacement cabin air filters to use on a vehicle. A standard filter uses a particulate type of foam which helps protect against pollen entering the vehicle. The other option to consider is the charcoal layered filter. The charcoal layered filter helps protect against heavier odors and is generally used in highly polluted areas.
