Default Air filter on a 2005 honda accord ?

Does anyone know where I can locate my air filter compartment in my 2005 Honda accord LX 4cyl. I need to change my air filter. with todays super high gas prices, I cant afford to take it in to Honda, they will charge me a ridiculous amount just to do that for me. Thanks

have you tried Pep Boys or any other auto supply shop. You can ask for help in the back counter or there is a book back there where you can look up the make and model of your car.

You should check the maual and never pay for something you can do on your own.

open the hood and look at the engine from the front. You'll see a big black rubber tube (bellows) that runs from the engine in the center of the car to the front of the car on the passenger side. the front of that black tube connects to a black plastic rectangular box. That is your air filter housing.the top of the box where the black tube connects to it is held on by screws. you simply use a screwdriver to unscrew them (they won't come all the way out because of retainers but you'll feel them disengage). there are usually about 6 screws around the top and one or two in top center of the lid.when all of the screws are loose, lift up on the top and you'll find the air filter underneath. the air filter has a smooth side and a webbed side. the webbed side goes down when you put the new filter in.It should take you about 10 minutes to change the filter.(some cars have the air filter box on the driver's side rather than the passenger side but if you follow the black bellows from the engine forward you can't miss it)the auto parts store price for the filter is about half of what a honda filter is but the filter is not as durable as the honda. you'll replace the aftermarket filter twice for every time you change the honda filter.hope that helpshope that helps.

If your looking for the cabin air filter, its located behind the glove box, and you have to take the glove box out, which is simple, takes like five minutes.
