Wish I'd found this before I futzed with my glovebox. (Broke one of the side tabs a bit).


Hope it helps someone.

A picture is worth a thousand words. I read the trouble some have had removing the tabs, breaking the tabs, etc. and was hesitant to try this myself. After seeing the tabs and how they just pop out I won't heistate to do this one myself and save the additional $60 the dealer wants to install the filter.

It helped me, thank you.

$60 ? , my GOD , we usually charge .1hr with a cheapy oil change or n/c with ful inspection. Some Honda's require metal bracket removal and warrants the .2hr

I could not believe how easy it was the first time I changed out ours the first time. Had the van a year now. Guess its time to get new one and new air filter to.

Mine was F-I-L-T-H-Y. I thought the PO or the dealership had done that before I purchased, but maybe thats what 30K miles gets you.

It took me longer than five minutes, took 17, but half of that was discovering what was in the glove box. lol

It wasn't that dirty, mostly tree stuff and spider eggs.

Could someone please list the filter element part number here. That'd handy to have it in the same thread I think.

A mod for the cabin filter is to use a home furnace filter instead of the over priced purpose made "cabin" filter. I use a WEB furnace filter that I buy at Lowes for $12-15. I can cut the filter to size and can usually get 3-4 cabin filter out of one furnace filter. The a good quality furnace filter will filter out more pollen and odor that the purpose built cabin filters.

Here is a write up showing how I do it.

I used the Fram CF 10134 @ $16.95 from Amazon. It's eligible for free shipping. It has activated carbon and baking soda embedded in the filter.
