there is an easier way.
instead of removing the glove box you can just open it past its normal location.
almost every honda/acura ive worked on can do this in one way or another.

Just open the glove box

then press in on both sides like this. (i needed one hand for the camera)

once you press both sides in enough the glove box should open past its stops.

do the same to put the glovebox back





much faster, and doesnt require any tools beside your two hands

Great post! How do you remove the glove box? Do you just pull it, squeeze it side or remove some screw.

Usually around every 48k it's recommended to change it.

Thanks to you guys for this very helpful/informative thread. I had no idea where the Cabin Filter was located until now, let alone how to change it.

it really depends on the climate that you drive in, going 15k in a rainy environment the filter isn't going to show very little dirt. driving 15k in the city you never know how much build up is on that thing. I had an 06' Maxima come in with only 8k miles and there were pine needles and a little rats nest laying on top of the filter. With the filter being so easy to acces you might as well check it every oil change. It makes for a better driving experience.

It doesn't hurt to check. My car has 6,500 miles and I have not driven in dirty or dusty conditions. As you can see from this PIC, it looks like an abandoned rats nest with all the crap in there.

Less than $20. Bosch sells a replacement that you can get at an auto parts store.
