2010 FEH air filter questions:

Mine's an '08. But my work has a '10 one as a pool car. I volunteered to get the air filters and change them out.

I used a couple of part finders and finally bought from Amazon. They were showing the same Wix filters (49187 and 42793) that I put in the '08. So I just assumed that they'd work. Lo and behold, neither fits.

First question- does the '10 have a battery air filter? It looks like it's just recirculating air in the cargo area. Am I missing a panel to get to the filter? Is there another (cabin?) filter to get instead?

Second question- the engine air filter in the manual is a Motorcraft FA-1772. What are comparable numbers from Wix et al?

TimK, Thanks for the filter info. I just purchased a 2007 FEH 4WD three weeks ago. Got a new air filter for the ICE and the HV battery. Going for an oil change this week. I've been a FRAM Filter guy for a long time. Any idea what part # FRAM has for the FEH oil filter? Again, thanks for the nice post of part #'s and images.

For reference -

This thread now contains a guide on how to replace the rear traction battery duct filter with a lifetime K&N filter.

Just received five Motorcraft filters (fuel, air, oil, HV battery, cabin air) from Rock Auto for $55 delivered by Fedex.

I know some people have had a hard time finding a socket that fits the oil filter cap nicely and I just wanted to say that I took a chance on the LISLE 54760 76mm/14 flute socket and it worked very well and fit tightly. I got mine from Rock Auto.

I have found that the head of oil filter cap drain plug (2006 FEH) has rounded out with use. (I change my oil/filter at 50% life remaining.)

The Ford part number for the oil cap assembly (the drain plug is not available separately) is 1S7Z6A832BA and costs approximately $40.

There is a Dorman (Chinese made aftermarket) part number 917-004 available for around $12. There are repeated references to poor quality control issues in the Amazon reviews (mentioned in 6 out of the 14 current reviews) and I decided not to go that route.

Mazda part number LF01 14 320 A9U cross references to both part numbers above and sells for approximately $16. It's the same part as the Ford one and it has to be better than the Dorman, so this seems like the best choice.

The Mazda Tribute part number is ec0150819a. They are identical...I have used them and, as usual, they are much cheaper than the Ford part....less than $1 each.
