Default Replaced AC Cabin filters 2000 TL 3.2

I replaced AC Cabin filters on my 2000 TL 3.2 today. I am glad I did. I
have over 60K miles (60.9K) and changed these for the first time. They were
fairly dark (gray on inlet & outlet).

Thanks to E.Meyer for his help and others too. The directions E. Meyer sent
were great ; from the Acura Service manual. I however, got help from the
acuraworld.com forum where someone had a great posting. The service manual
talked about removing a side panel (after opening the passenger side front
door and prying off the panel). I didn't have to do this. I basically
looked at "both" illustrations, from the dude who posted on acuraworld.com
and also the service manual which E. Meyer had emailed me. I used judgement
from both cases, and finished the job in less than 30 minutes. The next
time should be 1/2 that time.

I vacuumed the chamber that holds the 2 filter media as it had collected
some debris and after wiping it clean, put the two filter media in place
matching them with the air flow markers.

Again, thanks all. I found a great way to kill 30 minutes on the Labor day
weekend.

Xavier, thanks to all your help too. Appreciate it. I am only left with
