How to Install the Cabin Air Filter on a 2000 Ford Expeditionby Tonya Cunningham
Your 2000 Ford Expedition's cabin air filter traps dirt and harmful contaminants so that the airflow in your car is fresh and strong. If the vents in your Expedition are having trouble producing a fresh and steady flow of clean air, check the cabin air filter. Chances are, if the filter has not been replaced in over 12,000 miles or one year, it is ready for a replacement.
Open the hood of your vehicle to locate your cabin's air filter. The air filter on a 2000 Ford Expedition has a black cover and is located next to the heater fan on the passenger side of the engine.
Raise the filter's cover using a flat head screwdriver to pry it upward. The cover will easily pop off and can be set aside.
Remove the cabin air filter by gently pulling it out of the rectangular slot. If the filter is particularly old or dirty, particles may fall so be sure to move it away from the engine as quickly as possible.
Wipe the inside of the air filter housing with a shop rag and clean up any dirt and dust that may have spilled elsewhere from the old filter.
Slide the new filter into the container, making sure that the filter is facing the same way as the original filter.
Replace the plastic cover over the air filter container. You will hear a click when the lid snaps back onto the container.
