Question about 2007 Honda Pilot

1 Answer

I own a Honda Pilot 2007. I need to replace the cabin A/C filter. The instructions I'm getting are to cut off a plastic bar in order to gain access to the filter. Does cutting this plastic bar weaken in any way the structural integrity of that assembly? (I'm worried about this assembly starting to rattle after I cut this bar off.) Is there any other way to install this filter without cutting this bar off?

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.

How to replace cabin air filter in 2003 pilot


Step 1 Take everything out of the glove box on the passenger side. Squeeze the black clips on either side of the glove box interior to free it from its retainer and pull it toward you. It will glide forward on hinged arms. Lower it as much as possible so it's out of your way.
  • Step 2 Identify the gray plastic bar that runs from left to right across the bottom of the glove box opening. This is a piece of plastic molded to the rest of the glove box assembly, but it covers up a removable bar that is mounted directly in front of the cabin air filtermag-glass_10x10.gif case. You'll have to cut this plastic bar off with a razor knife to proceed. Fortunately, this isn't too difficult; just cut carefully and steadily, and make your cuts as close as possible to the ends of the bar.
  • Step 3 Remove the metal bar you uncovered in the previous step. It is screwed into the glove box assembly with Phillips head screws on either side.
  • Step 4 Open the cabin air filter case, which is the large plastic case on the left side off the glove box opening. The hatch will come all the way off when you open it.
  • Step 5 Take the old air filter out of the case and throw it away.
  • Step 6 Look at the arrows on the filter and the arrows on the filter case that indicate the direction of the air flow. Slide the new filter into place so that the arrows are both pointing the same way.
  • Step 7 Put the lid back on the air filter case and reinstall the metal bar you removed in Step 3.
  • Step 8 Push the glove box interior compartment back into place and listen for the snapping sound. Put the glove box contents back, close the lid and you're done.

    Hi Having trouble removing cabin air filter on a 2007 honda pilot


    Remove the four screws on the air filter hood (driver side, behind battery) using 5/16" socket. No need to remove screws all the way. Lift plastic hood just enough to reach air filter. Electrical connector can remain. Slid out old air filter. Insert new one. Replace hood, and tighten the four screws.

    If the filter is tight, wiggle it left-right when pulling the filter out.

    2008 honda pilot cabin air filter


    This solution pertains to a 2008 Honda Pilot...To replace the cabin air filter which is located on the passenger side of the vehicle behind the glove box: Open glove box and remove stored items...while sitting in the passenger seat, pull towards you on each of the two clips on the left and right side of the glove box...this will cause them to become loose and the glove box will tip out completely exposing the inside of the dashboard. (Alternately...carefully pull towards you on the top center of the glove box which will cause the left and right side stops to pull away from the edges and allow the glove box to tip out) Here it gets tricky...the box holding the cartridge for the cabin air filter is the large black box on the left side behind the glove box The filter fits in a removable tray vertically inside that box. A pressure clip at the top of the box allows the vertical cover to be removed exposing the tray with the Cabin air filter... BUT!!! There is a plastic bar an inch or so high which has been placed there by the manufacturer to prevent most from changing the filter without the service department being involved. This bar must be cut with a sharp sheetrock knife or hacksaw and discarded, (it will not be reinstalled). Then there is a flat metal bar behind the plastic bar that can be removed using an 8mm socket and a phillips screwdriver. There are 2 8mm screws and one phillips head screw on each side that must be removed in order to remove the metal bar. THEN you can remove the cover to the cabin air filter box, pull out the tray with the filter (note how the filter is in the box so the new one can be placed the same way) reinsert the tray with the new filter and replace the tray cover. All other steps to finish the job are obvious as everything is the reverse. Actually the whole process is a lot of trouble and unless you are determined to change the filter I would recommend not doing it.

    How do i remove the cabin air filter?


    Well when I had mine replaced for the first time, my mechanic when to the manual and followed the instructins. The first time you have to cut out the plastic bar that was uitilized in putting the dash on at the factory. You drop the glove box and you can see the filter, but the bar is in the way. Hack saw that piece out and you are good to go.

    Replacement of cabin air filter


    first remove the glove box. At the bottom of the glove box opening there is a plastic crossbeam that is there to keep things from twisting during manufacture. This crossbeam is no longer needed once the dash assembly is completely installed and must be removed to gain access to the cabin air filter. Cut the crossbeam at each end with a small hacksaw or diagonal cutting pliers and remove it. Behind it is the steel glovebox frame crossmember. It has screws at each end and can be removed easily. Once these two cross beams are out of the way, you can unlatch the filter cover--its vertical and has integral latching clips at top and bottom. Slide out the old filter. Replace with new. Reverse steps to put back to right.

    Cabin Filter replacement


    The filter comes with the instructions. I just did it last night to my Honda. It is behind the glove box. You need to remove the glove box, cut a plastic beam out, unscrew the metal support beam and then open and r/r the filter. The instructions don't mention that you need to remove the trim that covers the little fuse box located on the side panel--there is a plastic retainer that you unscrew by hand and then it all comes off easiliy!
