Default The Mysterious Cabin Air Filter

Does the Cabin Air Filter exist?

According to a thread I found on this forum, most believe that it does not.
Cabin air Filter?

However, I have found 2 links on the internet that reference a Cabin Air Filter for 1998-2003 Ford Rangers.
http://www.partsgeek.com/tq5vcwm-for...bin+Air+Filter
http://www.fordtechservice.dealercon...010000_010.pdf

I am having some A/C issues and heard that changing the Cabin Air Filter could resolve my problem.

So what's going here? Has anyone here ever changed the Cabin Air Filter?

Rangers never came with them and a cabin air filter has nothing to do with A/C

I've looked & can't find any evidence of a cabin air filter in mine.

I don't think 4.0's cabins are any different.

No, but charcoal lined shorts probably would, and yes, they really do make 'em.

Alright...I took apart my dash couldn't find any place to put these damn filters...They don't exist. Why they sell them online, I'm not sure, perhaps to sucker people like me into buying them. Thanks for all the replies and discussion
