Have you ever sat in an old car and the A/C system just does not seem to blow enough air? That is because over time, without an air filter element, dust, dirt, and other contaminants gets sucked up into the blower box and get trapped in the evaporator core clogging the passages and restricting air flow. This kit allows you to filter unwanted contaminants in your A/C system and as a result improves air quality, maintains system performance and increases evaporator core life.
The Pony R Parts 1998-2002 Crown Victoria Exterior Air Cabin Air Filter kit has these great unmatched features:
This kit filters cabin air when the A/C setting is on “NORMAL” (outside air). For filtered air with the “MAX A/C” setting, we offer another kit for that.
Also included is a plate that partially shrouds the filter to minimize the amount of moisture that falls directly onto the filter.
Here is an installation video.

Shipped in a reasonable amount of time. Build quality was very very good. Impressed. The filter fit for my 99 Crown Vic Police was perfect. Very nice product.
However, the splash shield that mounts to the wiper cowl did not work. The shield was designed for the one piece wiper cowl for the 2003 and up. On 2002 and down the wiper cowls are two piece.
There was no where to screw the shield onto the right side cowl, so I super glued it temporary to check fit, it did not fit the rain shield hit the body.
Had to custom cut the shield with die cutter, and screwed it on with a very small stainless screw.
Mr. Baratta, thank you for your comments. We are making adjustments to our kit to address the issue you had.

This is a well made and easy solution to the problem of gravel dust entering your Crown Vic's interior. Simple to install and a big improvement over the OEM screen and filter retrofit offered by Ford years ago. I also was able to modify and reinstall the OEM screen so that it mounted right on top of the filter using the kits retaining ring and the four small threaded studs that are part of the kit base plate.
