Air filter minder

This evening driving home my Air Filter warning light came on in the dash. I was 5 minutes from home so I decided to drive that little bit a look under the hood. Upon inspection, the whole black cap had separated fron the clear portion and was hanging by the connected cables. My filter should be fine so I don't think I'll have an issue with decreased airflow. My concern is with getting unfiltered air through the broken off sensor. Is this a concern? My nearest ford dealer is an hour away, but I don't want to deal with them since they could be considered as morons. I'd rather drive the 2 hours to my original dealer who I have a good repoir with, and who have a good diesel tech.

Thanks in advance

I've blown 2 of em apart for whatever reason....they're only about 20 bucks at the dealer...not worth a 100 dollar warranty deductible if you were considering that route.

I've went thru one also. Had them replace it when I was in for the recalls. The new one is abit different than the old. The black plastic part is beefier at the seam where the clear plastic meets it. Hopefully it stays together.

I did the same thing on an earlier truck, the motor will stop running from lack of air before the minder will move, lol. I haven't blown one on the '05 yet.

I went thru 2 also on the 03....
thought maybe it was the puking hot collant that dripped on it, but probably the turbo farts that did it on the 03....

You can always just gut it out and epoxy it back together. It probably is the turbo farts blowing it apart.
