136 pages of info and anecdotes and affirmations that NOTHING is different between 2015-2018 (and most 2019 models).
New info that says a redesigned filter box became available in the last few months but is in extremely short supply.
Let's revisit what we know:
Bad design air filter box on 2015-2019 Transits of all engine varieties that lets water enter the intake system and soaks the air filter.
Ford's plastic rain gutters do not solve the issue.
Sealing the air filter box seam with waterproof tape or adding a cover to prevent water from getting into the seam (TURD) is the only proven "fix".
Recent 2019 re-design of air filter box solves the issue (as far as we know).
This new design is used in current manufacturing of 2019 models.
This new design is very hard to aquire for already purchased vehicles (at this time).
NO, your 2016 van was not fixed by Ford, it still has this issue
NO, your 2017 van was not fixed by Ford, it still has this issue
NO, your 2018 van was not fixed by Ford, it still has this issue
Sorry if buried somewhere in 137 pages of thread and no could not find anything in search. What about a K&N filter. It is oil based and rechargeable. Not an airbox improvement, but could help mitigate water moisture coming through?
