Climate Controlled Seat Filter

filter seats climate control a/c air conditioning

Best Answer drolds1 , 13 June 2014 - 05:23 PM

Do you have an owner's manual?  It's important reading, even more so in the case of a hybrid.

 

2012 MKZ Hybrid OM, pg 140:

 


Climate controlled seats air filter replacement (if equipped)
 
The climate controlled seat system includes air filters that must be
replaced periodically. Refer to
Scheduled maintenance information.
There is a filter located under
each front seat.
The filter can be accessed from the 2nd row foot-well area. Move the
front seats all the way to the full front and full up positions to ease
access.
To remove an air filter:
1. Turn the vehicle off.
2. Push up on the outside rigid edge
of the filter and rotate toward the
front of the vehicle once tabs are
released.
3. Remove filter.
 
 
To install a filter:
1. First, position the filter in its
housing making sure that the far
forward end is all the way up in the
housing.
2. Push in on the center of the
outside edge of the filter and rotate
up into the housing until it clips into
position.

Does anyone know where the seat filters are located and is this a job that i can do myself like the cabin air filter or is this a dealer job?

Thank you for any help.  BoltsFan4!

What does your owners manual tell you?  The 2013/14 use non-serviceable lifetime filters, so at least we don't have to worry about changing those things.  :)

I have never seen a seat filter that NEEDED to be changed... that is why the new ones are listed as lifetime... because the prior ones never even needed changed.. and im talking navigators with 200k+ and still looked new... we have changed them but they didnt need it but customer requested to, even after we advised them they didnt need to..

Thanks for the info StuntBikeJake, I did change my filters as recommended by the MTCE sched but low and behold as you stated they were no way ready to be changed. They were slightly dirty from doing their job but otherwise still extermely functional. I will in future first inspect them at the required interval and then decide to change if need be. I presume they will last a long time and may even be able to wash them, although the material is not thick and may tear easily. Either way this info will save me a lots of money as it is ridiculous the price they charge for those things....Thank all for the info... :)

I checked mine at 60k miles (I'm at 63k now). They still looked new, and replacements are ridiculously expensive.
