Mine was never changed before I bought the car as far as I could tell...Ford filter, no recalls done on the rain hat or anything. It was pretty nasty, but that's typical for what it's exposed to...just imagine all that stuff going straight into the blower.

They don't all have this, right? I have a 2000 and I don't recall it having a filter. Where is it located? Can you add one after the fact?

1. No

2. IIRC all 2000+ have them

3. Passenger side under the plastic cowling by the windshield

4. Yes

A 2000 should have come with one, I think, but I could be wrong about that...I guess it's possible somebody took it out at some point. Any 1996-2007 Taurus will take a cabin air filter

The procedure to change it is probably in your owners manual under "Maintainence and care."
It's in my 1998 manual, and I change mine every 15K miles, which Ford recommends and from all the dirt in it, I wouldn't go past this mark.

They're not hard to change. Just watch the metal tabs and the rain hat when putting it back together. I can't post a picture of my old one since I was afraid the camera lens would crack from sheer horror having to look at the filter. And the cedar pollen stuck to it was making me sneeze.
