General Ford Ranger Discussion General discussion of the Ford Ranger that does not fit in any other sub-forum.
well does it and where is it if it does? 2002 ranger xlt. It says in the manual but I think its just a generic thing and I”m not sure where to lookDan
Your Ranger does not have a cabin filter. It is mentioned in the generic Scheduled Maintenance Guide, not in the Ranger Owner”s Manual.
ya, ranger and explorers dont have one.some escapes have them, taurus, windstar…thats all i can think of right now.
my wifes ford forus zx3 has one. eventho you gotta buy it and install it bc from the factory it didnt even come with a filter in there
it would be nice to have a hepa filter in there. my alergies
it all depends on the vehicle. a garage i used to work at installs them and some take like 5 mins and ive seen some real pita.most are under the hood,under the plate on top of the fire wall.and always make sure you seal them up well after u replace one.
I”m not sure if it”s available for a ranger or not? But on the F150s (96-04) you can buy a kit from ford and put one in. Not a hard job at all.Rich
I think it would be a PITA to install one. There”s no access to the intake area in any easy way to make a mounting, and there is no existing mounting. It would likely involve lots of disassembly to change or clean such a filter with our system design.
It would probably be easier to custom build something in the vicinity of the fan box rather making a stock one fit somewhere. Remember the CO2 filters in Apollo 13?
Hey that would look sweet! Corrugated tubing running everywhere…”it”s a custom intake/cabin snorkel system I can deploy for full immersion underwater crossings…soon I”ll have the periscope but torpedos are hard to come by…”
John, I can so see you trying something like that. I can just see this bouy floating on the water with an intake, exhaust, and filtered cabin air tube attached to it.
Its most likely more trouble than it”s worth, I did a few on vehicles that offered it as an add on, it was sort of a rig if you ask me, I didn”t like cutting into a perfectly good heater box to make room for filter that no one missed on prior models. I have seen quite a few of the factory filters clogged so bad that they nearly stopped air flow and disrupted proper AC function. If you live in a dusty area, be prepared to change the filter often, I had one customer that would clog a filter every few weeks. They lived in a wooded area with lots of pine needles, pollen, and dusty gravel driveways. Keep in mind too that if you truck has AC, the evaporator core, which is wet with moiture when the AC compressor is on, (usually on in all positions exept dash vent or floor heat), does an excellent job of trapping dust and pollen too. All of which should go out the AC plenum drain. I have pollen allergies, and mayself could never tell the difference between a vehicle with or one without a filter while driving. I would also prefer to have unrestricted ventilation in a vehicle over a filter that will have to be replaced regularly at an added expense to me. Sort of one less thing to go wrong in my opinion.
