I noticed on a nother forum that in order to replace the ventilation filter you need to remove the glove box and CUT and DISCARD the dash brace. Is this true for the 2002's as well? Is anyone else concerned that cutting and discarding could cause rattles if not safety issues?

Anyone replace the filter either on your own or by the dealer and have it done another way?????

First off, I do not have my Ody, so I have not seen in person the brace. BUT, from data received on this board, along with looking at the FSM I got for Christmas (am I a nerd or what!) the brace is only there to help stiffen the dash when it is installed at the factory! Once the dash is installed, the brace is not needed. I do believe it is stupid that Honda designed the dash in this manner, but since it really does not affect the strength of the installed dash I guess it really doesn't matter. Hope this helps.
