This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and probably also the updated 2017) Ford Fusion sedan in cleaning or changing the engine air filter element for the EcoBoost 2.0 liter inline four cylinder motor.

Owners of other Ford or Lincoln vehicles such as the Focus, Fiesta, C-Max, Mustang, Escape, Transit Connect, Edge, Flex, Explorer, Expedition, Taurus, F-150, EcoSport, MKC, MKZ, MKS, MKX, MKT and the Navigator may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A few compatible replacement engine air filters with their part numbers are as follows: Fram CA11480, Motorcraft FA1912, K&N 33-5000, Ford Parts DS7Z-9601-A, GKI AF11480, Ecogard XA6272 and Hastings AF1557.

No tools are needed to replace the engine air filter element.


Please verify the correct replacement filter part number for your Fusion by consulting with a Ford dealership's parts counter, calling an auto parts store or by using the Amazon Part Finder website.

The engine air filter part numbers listed above for the EcoBoost 2.0L Turbo I4 motor should also be compatible with the 2.5L, 1.5L Turbo and 1.6L Turbocharged motors.

The engine air box is located on the right side of the engine bay just in front of the 12V automotive battery.

Flip down the two metal latches on the right side of the engine air box to release the top cover.

Lift open the top cover of the air box.

Pull the old filter straight out of the bottom half of the air box.

Clean With Vacuum

Clean Out Bottom Half Box
Inspect both sides of the old air filter.

If the old filter is relatively clean, just tap out the large debris and remove any fine dust with a vacuum cleaner.

If the old filter is dark grey or black and clogged with dirt, dust, leaves, insects, twigs, pollen, hair and other debris, it should be replaced with a new element.

I recommend buying the Fram CA11480 engine air filter since it has the best reviews on Amazon.

If your vacuum has a crevice attachment, clean out any sand or dust in the bottom half of the air box.
