Default Q: '92 Civic cabin filter

How do I acces the cabin filter (for the AC/heat vents) on a '92 Civic
LX?
Is it an easy DYI job to change the filter?

thanks

As far as I know, there is no cabin filter on that version of Civic.

There is no cabin filter in the '92-'95 Civic.

Is there a way to retrofit one from a later model Civic?

The cabin filter is something that appeared with the advent of R-134a. Soon
after the changeover from R-12 reports started coming in of evaporator
perforation - and the problem was appearing in many makes and models. I
think 134a mandated a change in evaporator alloy; evaporator leaks were
uncommon before the changeover. In any event, by 1995 it was determined the
problem was that dust and pollen were clinging to the condensed water on the
evaporator and corroding the metal. Cabin filters were used to reduce or
prevent the buildup of the corrosive mud. Now some models leave the heater
fan on for a while after the A/C is turned off to dry the evaporator, but
cabin filters are nearly universal.

I know Volvo offers a retrofit kit for a filter in their 850 model, which
was their flagship for those years. Whether Honda has such a kit for the '92
Civic is a good question. It really isn't necessary for the machine but the
man may want it.

Strange thing: Honda CR-V owners in Australia and Philippines say they
dont' have cabin filters in their vehicles. Considering how they must
use the AC a lot, how does it make sense for Honda to not provide a
filter 'slot'? Weird.

not easily. i've been looking into it for my 89. i've identified a
suitable filter, but it will only fit because i've removed the a/c. and
i have to glue it into place, not ideal.
