Default 2001 3.2CL cabin air filter

Just purchased this vehicle, owner's manual doesn't tell where the filter is
or how to change it, other than "see your Acura dealer". Anyone know how to
change the filter? TIA

Its behind the glove box. Take off the box (one screw on the little shock
absorber on the right side, one screw at each of the bottom hinges, the
stoppers on the sides slide forward then pop out.

If its never been changed before, you have to clip the plastic tabs around
the plate covering the access hole. Save it. It goes back in the obvious
slots and secures in place with the screw that is already there.

You need two identical filter elements. Most of the parts stores carry them
now.

I just changed mine and started out trying to use the instructions sent with
the micronair filters. They pretty well tell you to dismantle the front of
the car to get to those stupid filters! Then I saw some printing on the
plate you talk about ("required for service, do not discard"). Hmmmm, I
thought ... "discard" how could this piece be discarded its attached to the
car? So I realized that I could cut this plate out with some side cutters
and get at the filters real easy and then it could be re-attached by just
turning it 90 degrees and screwing it in place with the fittings provided
.... pretty neat.

I was so happy at finding the solution I took back all the nasty things I
was thinking about Honda engineering (well most of them). It still requires
removal of the glove box door.
