Default How to get a filter for air conditioner

Any ideas on how to hook a filter up to the air conditioning on a 2010 5.4 screw? So much dust blows in threw it. I read that the older f150s had one but not the new ones....

Anyone done this?

There is a cabin air filter in your truck already. Open the glovebox, press the sides in towards each other, and drop the glovebox down. Look up in that space and it's usually there. If it's blowing dusty air then it's probably time to change it out

I had thought there was, but i asked my dealership service department and they said there wasnt a filter on the f150's. Im gonna go look now.

same here, asked the dealer techs and they said there wasnt one, just looked, pretty sure there isnt one, there is a box behind the glove box, but it doesnt look easy to take apart, no access door that i saw, so id say 99 percent sure there is no filter on them.
