2000-2005 Jaguar S-Type Cabin Air FIlter

The K&N VF3008 cabin air filter was designed as a direct replacement for those in the 2000-2005 S-Type, LS and T-bird.

Aiming to bring a heritage of elegance, and motoring fun to a new generation of drivers, the British Jaguar S-Type and Ford Lincoln LS from 2000-2005 were brought to market as entry-level midsize executive sedans offering comfort and style. A new iteration Thunderbird introduced in 2002 brought fresh enthusiasm for driving and celebrated the beloved roadster of the '50s, but at 21st century design and performance levels. They filled a niche described as "sport luxury" and were definitely fun to drive.

The three were the first result of the Ford-Jaguar collaboration that produced the DEW98 platform that they share. Outfitted with independent suspension for positive handling and ride quality, these cars have a certain sportiness and road-going competence.

Topped with roomy, nicely appointed interiors, a daily commute, evening drive to the city or a weekend cruise could all be had in comfort. Integral to those interiors is a dual-zone climate control system providing clean fresh air in individual microclimates for driver and passengers. This convenient technology works well when all the controls and ducting are in tune, but when one crucial element – the cabin air filter – is dirty, the system becomes compromised.

2000-2005 Lincoln LS Cabin Air Filter

The K&N VF3008 cabin air filter was designed as a direct replacement for those in the 2000-2005 S-Type, LS and T-bird.

A clogged or dirty cabin air filter is often the source of stale odors and low airflow into the HVAC system that can damage heating, cooling and air circulation components. To protect the system, on the S-Type, Lincoln LS, and Thunderbird, the filter is generous-sized and rectangular, and handles a hefty flow of air. The suggested service interval for the cabin air filter is to replace it at least once a year, or about every 12,000 to 15,000 miles.

Many owners may already aware of the benefits of performing regular cabin air filter replacements, but they now have the option of using a K&N washable, reusable filter. The VF3008 was designed as a direct replacement for those in the 2000-2005 S-Type, LS, and T-bird. It is housed in a sturdy molded polyurethane frame for a precise fit into the factory cabin air filter box, which is mounted on the passenger side, forward under the base of the windshield.

Designed to grab and hold a range of particulate matter like spores, pollen and various pathogens, the K&N VF3008 is constructed of a special electrostatically charged synthetic material and pleated to offer a greater surface area for high airflow and dust holding capacity. The media is also designed to be washed and reused over the lifetime of the car. Use the K&N Cabin Filter Cleaning Care Kit's cleaner spray to loosen dirt and other particles, rinse with water, air dry, then spray with refresher spray.

2000-2005 Thunderbird T-Bird Cabin Air Filter

The S-Type, LS and T-bird all have dual-zone climate control systems that can benefit from the protection of a K&N washable cabin air filter.

K&N replacement cabin air filters are backed by a 10-year, 100,000 mile limited warranty so owners can be confident that their filters will provide years of clean cabin air. Millions of vehicle owners have trusted their engines to K&N engine air filters for decades. K&N applies the same high standards of design, production and performance to its replacement washable cabin air filters so the Jaguar, Lincoln, and Thunderbird's climate systems will breathe easier for another generation.
