Ford Taurus Owners Manual: Cabin air filter

Note: Make sure you have a cabin air filter installed at all times. This prevents foreign objects from entering the system. Running the system without a filter in place could result in degradation or damage to the system.

The particulate filtration system gives the following benefits to customers: Improves the customers driving comfort by reducing particle concentration.
