Question about 2005 Acura RL
I don't believe this one is mounted in glove box. Need to change.
Hi,welcome to fix ya. its behind the glove box . Just open the top compartment inside the glove box (button in the middle) and pull the compartment out it has velcro and plastic snaps on the back side > Then grab the compartment by the outside and push the lock tabs in and pull the tray with the cabin filter out and change the filter.

I will never understand why this service is so expensive at the dealership.
I made a video showing how this is done: (I would recommend watching the video in HQ and full screen)

Open the glove box and there are push out tabs on the left and right side pop them out. Now watch it because you are about to dump the contents of your glove box on the floor. let the box hang freely from the lower hinge and look in the back. You will see a white panel that pulls out the panel has a tray attached with the filter element in it remove old element and replace with new 20ish bucks at the parts store lots more at the dealer. re-install filter tray and reverse your removal steps to re-install. Recommended approx 15k or annually

You cut the cross bar away with some diagonals and throw it away. It is just an assembly aid when they are putting the car together. Google "DIY MDX cabin air filter" and you will find step by step procedures with photos for changing the filter. It is not a difficult job.

Remove the three torx screws using a torx-20 screwdriver...pull back the padding in the footwell...there is tab holding the left part of the plastic piece, use a flat-head screwdriver
to pop it out...you may need to disconnect the light connector, and the cigarette lighter connection.. Once the plastic piece is out, you will see a large white box, the filter is
inside this box. There are two yellow clips that need to be slided to the
left/right. The box then pops out from below and the folded-filter will fall
Good luck..i hope this helps..please rate me a fixya.
