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.

SOURCE: How to I replace the cabin air filter in my 2008 MC C300

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 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 right out
Good luck..i hope this helps..please rate me a fixya.

How do I change the cabin filter?

In this vehicle, I believe the glove box must be removed to access the cabin filter. And, again, I believe you start with removing the two pins at the bottom of the glove box in which it hinges from.

Since your questions is old, was this the answer? Or, was there and easier method?

Where is the cabin filter on a 2003 honda odysseey

The cabin filter is located behind the glovebox.
First lower and remove the glovebox
If it has not been changed before, you will need to cut the plastic crossbrace behind the glovebox.
Once out of the way, unbolt the steel reinforcing frame behind the plastic and set it aside.
The cabin filter is mounted vertically behind it.

My heater/blower fan is stuck on high all of a sudden.

This is definitely the Blower (Fan) Motor Resistor located behind the dash Glove Box.
Remove the Glove Box completely to access.
It is mounted onto/slightly into the fire wall and has 3 to 4-wires going into it. I believe there are two (2) 8-mm bolts holding it on. It is shape like a 3 1/2 inches wide by 1 1/2 inches high.
Disconnected the negative side of the battery first
Unplug the resistor.
Remove and replace with new resistor.
Re-plug back in.
Reconnect the negative side of the battery.
Check operation before re-onstalling the glove box!

Heater/air cond blower only works on high. any

It is the Blower Motor Resistor located behind the Glove Box on the dash. Remove the Glove box to access. It is mounted against the fire wall. This is a common problem. My 2002 did the same exact thing.
1. Disconnect the negative side of Battery.
2. Disconnected the Electrical Connection to the Resistor.
3. Remove the bolts/screws. I believe they have 8mm heads, there should be 2 of them.
4. Replace with new one.
5. Reconnect the negative side last.
6. Test System before putting the glove box back in!
7. Enjoy the CONTROLLED HEAT!!
