Default How Do I Access the AC Fan Housing in a 2006 RSX?

Hi All,

How do I access the AC fan housing in my 2006 RSX? I stopped by the
dealer and they implied it wasn't too difficult, but I should have
looked where he was pointing more closely (the passenger side
footwell). He spoke of nuts, but I don't see any. There is a shield,
but what holds it on? Is the cover of the AC housing readily visible
when you take that off? Any other advice appreciated.

Oh, all this is because there's a dead mouse in there somewhere! He
said the only open access to that area was through the vents below the
windshield. Now I know that mice can squeeze through small openings,
but though those vents?! Is there another way in?

TIA,

Rocky

how nice of your dealer for NOT being nice enough to help you out there
instead of letting you DIY

There are two air filters behind the glove box -- I bet you'll find your mouse
in there. You can free the glove box by popping out the two stoppers on
either side to access the filter housing. Those filters fill up with an
amazing amount of junk so you'll want to replace them almost annually

I don't think the warranty covers dead rodent removal.

.... or "Tragedy Behind The Glove Box"

.... or "Does Anybody Want Some Dead Baby Mice?"

.... or "Did I forget To Mention I Caught The Mother Mouse OUTSIDE The
Car?"

Anyway, thanks Russ, you were spot on. Unfortunately I tried a half
assed version of what I thought the tech at Acura was trying to tell me
first and broke off all the snappets on the kick shield before I took
off the glove box - my bad!

I WILL expect them to give me some replacement snappets.

Rocky, who says: If "Snappet" is not the name of the little plastic
'rivet's that held on the shield then I hereby claim the Trademark!

On most Honda products you can unplug the fan and remove three screws.
Fan falls out on floor and then you can stick a mirror in there to see
the little bugger. Dont' use compressed air in case of that disease
that's carried in mouse droppings. (can't think of the name).
