Hello! I've just got a 2013 MK3 Zetec ecoboost and I have a silly problem.

The door to the pollen filter is missing it's screw resulting in a bit of a noise when the fan is running.

Before I go and break it by accident with a screw from my garage, does anyone know what type of screw I need for it? Ideally I'd like a ford OEM one.

(I asked my local stealership and the parts guy said there was no such part available unless I ordered the complete heater box!!)

Thanks in advance!

Hi  
   There is a hole for a screw  but Ford do not fit a screw in production, the just locates at the top and then clips into place at the sides,
  You could add a small self tapping screw to make it more secure.

it can be quite tricky to refit the cover locating the top back into position
