So I tried to find a posting about replacing the cabin filter on the 2016 MKX to no avail, I did find one for the Edge, they are simular, but not the same, so here is my attempt to explain the replacement.

 

First empty your glove box, wait who puts gloves in the glove box any more :)

 

Then you will see these two tab that you need to press to up in order to let the back wall of the glove box release, these pics are after they are released.

Next on the right side of the glove box you will see a wire/cable attached to the side wall. Slide the bottom tab (red box) toward the door.

The catch will release from the box and carefully let it recoil into the opening.

Remove the screws in red circled areas, then press the tab outward on side by the screw and the cover will tilt down from the top.

And now you have access to the filter to replace. :idea:

I hope this helps anyone who wants to replace their own filter.

Of course follow the steps in reverse in put it back together, don't forget the screws.

Need to know.. Why do you think you need to replace the filter in a 2016 model?

Perhaps the OP has been advised as I was recently by a Ford dealer to 1) flush my transmission at 38,000 miles, 2) change my engine oil at 3,000 miles, 3) perform an engine de-carbonization at 33,000 miles. I emailed the Ford manager and informed him how disappointed I was in their upselling policy. Similarly, I reported my displeasure in a Ford service follow-up survey. I continue to perform DIY oil/filter changes and routine fluid and other maintenance checks on the MKX and my other vehicles.

Pretty simple, vehicle has close to 30K, over a year old, and most importantly, it was dirty with all types of particulate matter.

I do all the maintenance and repair on my 911 and really enjoyed it but my MKX includes, the same South of the border, free (not really as its build in the price) maintenance so I'll let do them do it.

Ran across a test on the use of carbon-impregnated air filter. Has benifit if you drive in a urban areas and freeways.
