Question about 2002 Honda CR-V
Follow the radiator hoses to where they both enter the thermostat housing. The housing will have three hoses attached to it (two large and one small). The housing is canted somewhat downward toward the lower radiator hose.
Remove the hoses and then the 2 bolts holding the cover in place. Grasp the exposed thermostat and remove it gently, taking note of the position of the cut-outs on the rubber seal and the location of the jiggle valve.
If the surfaces are not clean and components aligned correctly, your unit will leak and not work.
This is really one of the easier fixes on this vehicle.

It's not a easy job but I'm pretty sure you had one of those problems where the idle surges if this is the case take out the air intake tube that leads to the throttle body, get a can of carburetor fluid and spray around the throttle body. You will need someone to start the car and hold the gas peddle to 2500 rpm while you do this the car will shut of when you do this, restart the car and repeat the process until half of the can is used up. Now check your antifreeze level fill if needed and reset you check engine light. Now you can take the idle air back and get your money.

this happens alot on older vehicles most often times because the coolant hose shrink and expand around a fitting. try and tighten all coolant clamps. this often is all it takes to solve the problem. you should also look to see that all seals around heads of engine show no seepage

SOURCE: 2002 honda crv air filter change
Can you specify if you are referring to the engine intake air filter or the cabin air filter?
If you are referencing the cabin air filter, the attached youtube video should help.
I originally created the video for the Odyssey, but found out after looking at my dad's CRV that it is essentially the same procedure as the Odyssey, and have also noticed that the same stands true for most Honda vehicles built between 2005 and 2009.

it should be located right outside the engine block. follow the black rubber hose going from the radiator to the engine. the peice it connects to on the engine should be where it is. if you buy a hanes repair manual from autozone for your car it will walk you through it
