View Full Version : Where is the AC/vent filter located?
04-24-2004, 07:30 PM
I need to clean my A/C vent filter. Does anyone know where that is?
In my '91 Accord it was located under the dash on the passenger side, and 2 screws got it off. It was just a piece of foam inside a black plastic casing.

Do you mean the cabin filter? It's behind the glove box. There are some pretty extensive posts on this site that will go into all of the details. The filter shouldn't have to be replaced until you have about 30,000 miles (according to the manual). You can either get a new filter from Honda OR go to your auto store and find an equivalent. I bought a Purolator filter for mine, but you may have to go through several auto parts stores to find someone that carries it.
Anyway, do a search on this site for "cabin filter" and you should have everything you ever wanted to know, but were afraid to ask. If you don't find it, let me know, and I'll go into more detail. :lol:

I have 25,000 miles now and ordered the Filter, but it didn't come with instructions.
I first did a full search in all the forums for "cabin filter", but only came up with a few posts in the HR-V section.
I decided to pull the glove box and came up with nothing. I see one spot it coud be, but didn't want to risk breaking anything until I checked back here since it wasn't obvious as to what to do.
Any help please on replacing the Cabin Air Filter in an '03 EX?
I didn't see an installation sheet in that section either.

I found the install on another forum. It looks fairly easy, but be forwarned believe it or not you have to do some cutting.
Wow...thanks for the info David. Can you do an official write up so we can put it as a knowledge base article?
Thanks for sharing.

The resident Honda tech over at hondapilot.org did a DIY some time ago...

That's the same thread I found. I took his info and complied it into a 10 page Word document so I could print and use it while I did the install.
Here is the list of tools needed:
8mm socket 1/4 drive
ratchet 1/4 drive
2 inch extension 1/4 drive
Phillips screw driver #2
utility knife, exacto knife or exacto hobby saw
or air wheel
flat head screw driver
I did the install today and it wasn't too bad.
