Question about 2004 Honda Odyssey
The cabin filter is located behind the glove compartment. as bad it is going to taste, you will have to cut the plastic piece that is going across the front of the filter area. Behind this plastic is a metal bar that is going to be removed on both sides. I removed it only on one side and pushed it out of the way. once this is done you should have access to the filter. honda recommends taking it to the dealer at a cost of about $120. the dealer will do the same thing as far as cutting the plastic cover. there is no other way around this. don't worry it won't hurt anything, but it won't set right with your feelings at first. Be sure to keep track of all the parts from the glove compartment that you removed. it is not hard to change. At first it may take you about 30 minutes to do the cutting and replacement. the next time it will take you about 10 minutes.
it is not as bad as it sounds, as soon as you get over the fact that you have to cut some plastic that is molded and is in your way.
the plastic is running from side to side and is clearly visible when you take the glove compartment off. just cut it close to the ends to make it easier on you. the metal bar will have some small screws on the backside. i recall something like 10mm or so. filter comes straight out and goes right back in.
i had my honda mechanic tell me how to do this and it worked very easy.
