We had our cabin air filter changed early in September.  We usually have the fan on the second or third lowest speed setting.  Last week we were on a trip to the mountains and had occasion to turn the fan up closer to the highest speed.  When we did this there was an annoying vibrating/humming sound from the ventilation system -  very constant, not the click-click-click sound of a leaf in the squirrel cage.  Has anyone else experienced this after changing their cabin air filter?

OMG  I just changed our cabin filter for the first time. (had the car about a year) First off the screw holding the door was stripped at the head. I am not sure if it was originally a philips, torx, or allen, but nothing was getting it out! I had to drill the head off. Pulled the old filter out with a strong tug and it was filthy. Now the fun really began... I'd like to meet the Ford engineer who design the filter location and kick them right in their nether region. You can't see without lying on your back and contorting in a way that hurts. Then there really isn't enough room to push the filter straight into the slot. Nope, you've got to also contort the filter to get it in. I admit I uttered quite a few choice words but I finally prevailed.

The engineer who made the air filter box doesn’t talk to the guy who makes the glovebox and neither of them talk to the assembly engineer.

My take is that the engineers complained about the design as much as us but were told to do it that way by "management"!
