Capture pollen, mold, dust and other irritants before they reach the cabin of your 2015 – 2016 Ford F-150
No one wants to roll onto the job or camp site sneezing, with itchy eyes and a scratchy throat because they drove through a grove of pollen-laden trees. That’s why Ford installed a cabin air filter all versions of the F-150 from 2015 – 2016, including those equipped with the 2.7 L, 3.5 L, and 5.0 L engines. A cabin air filter is installed in-line between the air intake for the cabin and the HVAC unit and is designed to stop pollen, mold, dust, bacteria, and other micro-pests from entering the cabin and attacking your immune system.
These filters are important as without them driving your truck could literally make you sick. Without a cabin air filter, thousands of uninvited passengers like bacteria, dust, pollen and other allergens could be slipping into your truck each day. And many manufacturers rely upon old-school, inexpensive paper filters for this important task.
Here’s where it gets better. K&N has developed a replacement cabin air filter, part number VF2049, that is improved over the stock Ford filters in several important ways.
K&N cabin air filters are the first of their kind designed to replace your vehicle's stock cabin air filter with a washable and reusable upgrade that cleans and freshens incoming air. K&N cabin air filters are electrostatically charged to grab and hold dust and other airborne particles. They also help control odors by capturing the perpetrators that cause them: mold, mildew, fungus, spores, and germs, to name a few.
Everything needed to install the VF2049 cabin air filter in your 2015 – 2016 Ford F-150 is included in the box
Made of a unique non-woven synthetic material, the same air filter media used in hospitals and other health care facilities, K&N’s VF2049 cabin air filter is an easy upgrade for your F-150's cabin air filter. In addition, K&N cabin air filters are designed to fit your truck perfectly and seal tightly, thanks to the precision-engineered polyurethane frame. For your convenience, each filter comes ready to install straight out of the box.
Replacing the cabin air Filter is a fast swap – it’s as simple as exchanging the old, dirty filter for a new one. The housing for the filter is located behind the glove box and the filter can be replaced by removing a few clips by hand and two screws. Detailed instruction sheets are provided on the product web page for the 2015 – 2016 Ford F-150.
The only maintenance required for a K&N cabin air filter is a service you can do yourself in no time at all. At intervals of about 12 months or 12,000 miles, depending on driving conditions, use the two-part K&N cabin air filter refresher kit, part number 99-6000, to easily clean your air filter. This will bring it back to virtually new condition and ready to protect your car’s cabin and your passengers.
The process is simple: remove the filter from your vehicle. Once out of the vehicle spray the K&N cabin air filter cleaner onto the filter and rinse it with water to remove all accumulated dirt, dust, and other foreign matter. Allow the filter to dry naturally for 20-30 minutes and then apply the K&N cabin air filter refresher to the filter media. Lastly, re-install the filter back into your F-150 and you’re ready for another 12 months or 12,000 miles – without having to purchase a new filter.
Your K&N cabin air filter has been designed to last for years of use and is guaranteed by K&N’s 10-Year/100,000 Mile Limited Warranty.
