45k on the Fiesta calls for nothing more than an OFL and filter change. Because Alldata is completely useless, here's the process for the CAF should you ever see one.
CAF is located on the passenger's side in the EVAP housing. To access this, remove the leftmost kickpanel that is attached by a single plastic screw.
Remove the blue connector, and to the right are 6 T20 torx securing the filter housing. A stubby screwdriver and or 1/4" ratchet are your best friend because it is compact. You can remove the small vent piece if you wish, it snaps right back in. Rip the old filter out and see how gross it is.
In goes a Purolator CAF, $5 from my friends over at Pep Boys.
This should be a breath of fresh air. Seems to be well made and stout, on par if not superior to the Ford part. I said the same about the Puro AF I snapped on underneath the hood. Not shabby.
Since it's tight, youll have to bend it as see fit and use both hands to insert it into the housing. Use your fingers to get it tucked in, and re-insert to straighten out the bunched sections. Make sure to line up airflow to the arrow on the side of the housing. Screw in the torx, snap the trim back on and the job is vomplete. Calls for half an hour but if you've done it before (or read this), it should be a 10 minute quickie.
Safe to say I was due for a replacement. Pretty nasty.
Next, I'll cut the NAPA Platinum in half and see how one of these look after 6k.
