Never heard of these. When and what year generation of Taurus did they start installing this item?. Excellent photos in the prior post about changing this filter BTW. Thanks.

They were found in the Gen 3 (96-99) and the Gen 4 (2000-2007) models. Some guys on another Lincoln site modified their 88-94 Continental to have one (Continental is based off the Taurus).

Not all 96-99's had them. IIRC gen3's had them on the higher end models. From 2000 up they were standard. I remember our mechanic changin the filter in our 99 SE Vulcan and he said there wasn't one in it. If it didn't come with one from the factory one can still be put in.

Just making sure everyone understands.

From 96 to 2007 every thing is there to install it. If it is missing the filter just buy the filter and drop it in.

My Haynes manual says that the '96 year model didn't have a cabin air filter. Of course, Hayne's manuals aren't the greatest sources of information.

1996 did indeed have a filter. At least mine did anyway.

I assumed that someone was in there messing around until I read that some of them didn't have them on here.

Depending on model year, your dealer, and the trim line you purchased, it did in fact vary (ie. some models had the cabin air filter as a dealer installed options).

My 97 GL had it, and you can't get much more base model than that (except for a G).
