Default Honda Accord HVAC Cabin Air Filter Replacement Guide With Pictures

The A/C was starting to smell musty in our 09 Accord, so I replaced
the HVAC cabin air filter with a new one. I took pictures of the
process and created a quick guide.

It should be the same procedure for other 08, 09, 10 and possibly 2011
Accord sedans or coupes.

Here's the guide - http://www.paulstravelpictures.com/H...lacement-Guide

I hope it helps someone.

Cheers,

for an attention-whore, you've chosen a really bad topic - re-writing
the owner's manual is a complete waste of time, not least, your own.

You're being a bit harsh on the boy.

My owner's manual ('07) has no instructions at all for changing the
cabin filter. It says to take it to the dealer.

Around here, dealers charge $80-$!09 plus tax to replace the $22 OEM
retail cost filter. Auto supply stores stock a $7 Purolator version--
which is what I used in mine...and which works just fine thank you very
much.

It's cabin air for Pete's sakes. If you drive with the window open, you
get all that "nasty" fresh air blowing right smack in your face. What a
useless piece of equipment!

actually, it's an extremely useful piece of equipment.

remember how in the old days, a/c used to stink? have you noticed how
these days it doesn't? that's because the filter stops/significantly
reduces accumulation of all the small airborne detritus that accumulates
in the evaporator with the condensation, them molds and stinks the car
out. on really old cars, that accumulation can get so bad, air flow
through the evaporator can get clogged badly and it becomes almost
impossible to heat, cool or demist. the filter stops all that from
happening.

bottom line, cabin filters are a great idea.

Ok, Ok-- at seven bucks a pop, I'll replace it every oil change;-) Not
counting the time to empty/reload the glove box, it takes about 30
seconds to do!

Except if you read some of his other "How-Tos" he omits information that is
quite important. Like his how to change the oil makes no mention of
inspecting to make sure the old filter gasket came off with the filter and
isn't still on the vehicle. That is a vital step in changing the oil.

Yeah, and he says that for "added safety", he "likes" to use a jack-stand
to augment the hydraulic jack. He posted that howto in at least two groups,
was called-out on the error by a number of pposters, and has never bothered
to change the howto so as to correct his mistake.

It's like he posts the link, then never, ever checks back for reader input.
I'm almost thinnking he posts those links solely to get hits for his Google
ads.

Yeahbut, first time I changed the filter in my '06 I had to go look for a
guide just like this. I for one am glad people are posting this stuff.
